Artists don't owe you anything !

I saw a great article via Facebook today courtesy of Sabrina Chyld. It shares some very insightful words surrounding the current spate of criticism for Lauryn Hill
It hit home with me on several levels and I shared these words on Sabrina’s wall. They just repeat what I’ve been saying for a while but seem to say it more to the point.
Please read the article here, whether an artist yourself or just ‘one of the crowd’, it is very well written and food for thought.

I never wanted to be a headliner DJ and as times changed I really disliked the ‘pressure’ of having to perform as one. I miss the days of being able to share the music without having to be ‘in the limelight’, for people who care to hear the music for what it is. Obviously this is as much of my problem as it is ‘the crowd’s’ and there are many DJs who can just get on with what they do regardless of how the crowd accept it. Being one keen to make the best of the night for those attending, it felt less and less rewarding for me to play to many crowds, even the ‘best’ crowds sometimes still just want to hear what THEY want to hear as opposed to what I want to share with them. Just thought I’d get that baggage off my chest.
