Re: “Helio Sequence, Sun Airway, Houses, California Wives

Why does the information about music on this site typically suck?

Re: “The Heartland in Crisis

Its' because all the "journalists" that "work" for the reader are either friends and/or friends of friends or bought and paid for by various labels/interests/friends that do me favors and make me a rock star. I've lived in Chicago for the past 15 years, I've noticed the pattern by now. Get real journalists for the Reader please. Get rid of the nauseating trend setting quasi reporters like Liz Biz, Peter Meter, Jess the Mess and Bill Whyer. Sorry to pick on you but your so outdated and meaningless, you don't serve the struggling artist, artisan or musician, you serve yourself.

Re: “That Whole Paying-Off-Electrical-Audio Thing? Never Mind.

Albini is not a business type (obviously). He totally fudged up on many occasions when honey nectar opportunity knocked at his door and flew in to his hive. Everyone can champion his cause and all that crap but I have my own bills to pay. I appreciate all the things he's done don't get me wrong, he's a legend. Just because he fudged up multiple golden ticket opportunities I'm supposed to feel sorry for him and send him a couple hundred bucks to pay off his mortgage? For all the people who donated so far, you probably believe 911 was done by terrorists and the earth is flat, I'm sorry but you're not thinking correctly, Albini is just fine and if he's not, he needs some business consulting not your money. I know this is harsh but there are many artists with medical bills and the like that are struggling to survive (recent legend way bigger than Albini by the name of Arthur Lee of Love and the countless other legends that truly need and needed our help. Where were you for Arthur Lee? The guys dead now and how many people came to his aid. It's almost as if they're just promoting that website????? mmmmmmm. I'm sorry Sir (Albini and company), I don't believe you and think you're pulling one on your fans. As soon as they catch wind of your deceit you are done, that's why you pulled the fundraiser. Your actions have consequences if they are not pure my friend and I believe they were a lie. Shame on you for being a website promoter????? Jesus
