In the world of music, the fans are the most important element without question. For as much love and care as you put into your music, it's not going to matter in the slightest unless you have the fans that support what you do. That being said, that hasn't stopped some bands from tearing into their fanbase.
Now, are these all instances of mistreatment? No... not on principle at least. Even though some of these bands have called out fans for doing horrible things, they end up looking like the better people for stopping the rest of their musical family from getting too out of control. Whether it's at a concert or online, these artists have had a few choice words to say about the more outlandish people who enjoy their music.
However, more often than not these artists let the ego of rock stardom go to their head and make outlandish suggestions so that they don't have to see or hear any of their fans asking them anything. The best musicians find a way to be respectful to anyone who comes to see them, but sometimes things get a little nasty in between the crowd and the entertainment.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
