I can’t take anything this guy wrote seriously. It was decent of him to apologize, but he used the Middle East example to set the tone of this article (that first paragraph is just awful) with star struck teenagers and it’s not an accurate depiction, so I can’t assume anything that comes after it is an accurate recounting either.

Girls who are short/small like to be up front so they can see and not get crushed. A music writer, who presumably goes to a lot of shows, and who plausibly knows or has known some females that go to shows, should know this. It’s also pretty normal to sing along and look at the singer. Guys do it too, and there were plenty there that night which he didn’t see or find worth mentioning. To me the whole thing comes across as him just spinning a tale the way he wanted to, which is pretty standard for the press.

Basically.

I have to say...I'm glad I read this article, because Brian has never voiced his opinion on fan relations.

Seriously, this is the same guy that (before he met Eddie Vedder) said excitedly on a radio interview, "Ohhh and I bet he's a nice guy, too!" That's (generally speaking) all any fan of any band wants. We want to think that the people in the band are generally nice guys. Hey, Brian, you also wrote a love letter to Joe Strummer in the form of a song that some might find "creepy". Relax, dude.

And I know it's not the same thing, but I go outside and talk to audience members after a performance of a play. Every night. I had one of

f night where I needed to be alone, but even then I sucked it up enough to just say hi to the people that wanted to talk to me. I've had weird dudes follow me around afterward and girls hanging too close for comfort, but it's not a big deal, because MOST PEOPLE AREN'T LIKE THAT. They just want to show appreciation for your art. That's it.

EDIT: Also, am I reading that wrong or did he refer to Hot Water Music as part of the NJ punk scene?

"ohh and i bet he's a nice guy!", yet based off of one interivew, he's not a nice guy?

also, creepy? go fuck yourself. who care if Joe Strummer found that song creepy, what i find creepy, is that you are so deeply analyzing someone else's motives to search so deeply just to insult them.

oh you talk to "fans" of your "play"?? that's completely on par! cause not only do THAT MANY HORNY FUCKING TRANSPARENT PEOPLE want to talk to you as they do to Brian, but being in some minor league "play" is totally comparable to being in a band that is blowing up, popularity-wise. totally the same, you might as well be Brian Fucking Fallon Himself Shocked

You have very poor reading comprehension skills and you're reacting far too emotionally to a fairly well-reasoned post. I was calm when I wrote that, but somehow I imagine you digging your fingernails into each key, scratching off the F key in the process.

Hmm...I may fuck myself today. Depends how horny I get the rest of the morning. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted if it's that important to you, sugar.

Quit being a bitch to everyone Steph. Jesus, Jack presented his argument in a calm, collective way. God, your bullshit on this forum is so annoying.

Haha probably the greatest song of all time when you're really, really pissed off.

I didn't read every post, but my opinion on this is that the creepy thing was definitely taken out of context. He just meant it was weird to him that he's become someone people look up to, not that the fans were creepy for doing it. But on the other hand, they are definitely bringing up this subject way too much and it's starting to get annoying. Brian seems impatient and stressed lately, not quite like how he was back in T59S days. Probably wouldn't hurt him to take a little break, he's been working nonstop between Gaslight and THC.

I think the fact that so many people are all up-in-arms about this accurately reflects what Brian is saying in this interview and the Rolling Stone interview.

I also think the fact that it was cleared up, and still people are over-reacting, says more about the people, than anything. This isn't even me going on and on, defending my opinion, it's actual fact that has already been stated. You fell for a nobody 'journo' looking for his webhits.

But sure...

i really dont see why people get so worked up over anothers opinion. Thats what makes us awesome. Both had valid points in my opinion. DIsagree or agree if you will and move on, no need to get emotionally attatched/insulted to others opinions that dont match yours , Your on a fan forum not living together haha and if your here then your a "fan" im guessing and we all share a common interest

Shrug.
I can't stop people from over-reacting.
They can't change the way Brian feels.

End.

I'm not really sure what Brian's looking for in a fan at this point. He doesn't want to be friends with fans, so don't try to buy him a beer, and he doesn't want fans to look up to him, yet he still wants to play in stadiums? Sounds like he doesn't really know what he wants, just my two cents

I feel this is coming to an end (until the next interview is published anyway haha). I think some people have gone a bit too far on this one, getting personal and taking things to heart. But I'm glad the mods didn't lock it as has tended to happen in the past. Everyone had their say and I'm done now Wink

It is a lovely conclusion, and it needs to be quoted on this page...so that this thread dies.

I don't care what all this means, or what Brian says ultimately, I'd just feel awkward waiting around at a show. Like he didn't really want to be meeting me. I mean all I'm looking for is maybe a photo, or a signed record. Reading interviews over the years he's said a lot of stuff that's helped me, or put things into perspective. I don't know to be his best friends, I just want to be able to have a word with him if I happened to bump into him and not feel like I was being a dick about it.

Like another band I know, had a number two album on a major label, who have played an arena, and are playing similar size gigs as Gaslight. I've met the lead singer three or four times, randomly, and after a show, and he just recognizes the fact that we stood our in the cold for an hour, has a few words, a picture, signs our ticket and is on his way. He chats to me on twitter and got me into a radio session, I don't see the harm in that, but ultimately it's up to Brian.

I agree with this. This may not have been directed to any one fan, but I think all of us who have showed dedication to what they do took what he said to heart.

To those saying the columnist might've spun the quote, if that were the case he would've said something by now, like when it happened to Frank Turner.

I don't know man, this isn't the Brian we're used to.

I don't care what all this means, or what Brian says ultimately, I'd just feel awkward waiting around at a show. Like he didn't really want to be meeting me. I mean all I'm looking for is maybe a photo, or a signed record. Reading interviews over the years he's said a lot of stuff that's helped me, or put things into perspective. I don't know to be his best friends, I just want to be able to have a word with him if I happened to bump into him and not feel like I was being a dick about it.

Like another band I know, had a number two album on a major label, who have played an arena, and are playing similar size gigs as Gaslight. I've met the lead singer three or four times, randomly, and after a show, and he just recognizes the fact that we stood our in the cold for an hour, has a few words, a picture, signs our ticket and is on his way. He chats to me on twitter and got me into a radio session, I don't see the harm in that, but ultimately it's up to Brian.

I agree with this. This may not have been directed to any one fan, but I think all of us who have showed dedication to what they do took what he said to heart.

To those saying the columnist might've spun the quote, if that were the case he would've said something by now, like when it happened to Frank Turner.

I don't know man, this isn't the Brian we're used to.

I don't think he spun the quote so much as the lack of context makes it sound worse. I think it came off as "I don't know why these weirdos want to bug me after shows" and in context (from what the writer has said ) it sounds more like he really meant "I don't know how to handle it so I'm kind of freakin' out a bit". In which case, he probably doesn't think he was misquoted (if he's even read it). Therefore, he'd only speak up if he realized how so many of us were taking it.

But, given that we don't know exactly what's running through his head and we do know that something about the process weirds him out, it does give me pause too regarding approaching him after shows. Even if he's not being a jerk, why would I want to do something (like approach him) if it makes him uncomfortable?
