Hi!! Why does the John Ryan post sound like Louis was a problem!? And what is with the ego connect?? Just surprised by his comments I guess. Your thoughts??
I’m listening to the podcast now, I’ll have an educated opinion when I hear it in context, but at the moment, I’m thinking that Louis was pushy and aggressive with the songwriters while in 1D so that the sound of the band was THEM not their assigned songwriters.
And the songwriters resented the fuck out of that.
But in both cases, John Ryan and Savan Kotecha have said that they get along fine with Louis now. Julian Bunetta apparently always meshed well with Louis and he ended up being the primary writer for the band, I don’t think that’s a coincidence.
It’s just funny that John and Savan still haven’t figured out what was happening then or why Louis was so difficult for them to work with (which is the exact opposite of what Steve Aoki said about him).
As someone else said, the ego problem wasn’t Louis’, it was the writers that just couldn’t understand why this ONE member of the band, the one with no solos, was such a loudmouth when the others would have gone along with them (at first, I’m sure they all got more confident later on). Louis wasn’t fighting for his ego, he was fighting for everyone else’s and for the quality of the band.
Honestly, I’m so fucking proud of Louis.
