Re: “Diamanda Galas on the death of Whitney Houston

You and Al must be in your last glory-hole days. Sure Chaka told me to shut up. Likely story.
I am now enjoying you guys.What amazes me is that the disease is still ravaging your
dead brain, Al.It makes me happy. Now you have to lie to get it up. But who cares,
now that we know about your brain disease.

I played for your brain-dead functionaries for years as a child, drunk fez-wearing
fat fucks. You got the dirttrack alone now, officer. Pull your little joint alone. I don't
live on your block,koloyerakes.

You should know, Al.
Use your own name, cobarde.

Re: “Diamanda Galas on the death of Whitney Houston

Okay, I am laughing so hard here at, " nope," I checked," that I am convinced that my unhappy
friends of the last few years, are at it again. None of them have any idea how magnificent,
after performing all over Europe in big venues and festivals-many of which are impersonal- that
it is to do a gorgeous venue like that in Chicago, where artists come to do residences
before performances. This museum provides small residencies for those of us who
have to check on day of show in very large venues and then split. It is absolutely refreshing.

It is important to point out to Clive's minions, who have taken issue with
me and with Chaka, that we have received 200,000 periodicals agreeing with us, and that
is why, when my facebook is consulted as often as it is, absolutely necessary to give them
no leeway, an dto point this out to them. Only musicians know the business, and anyone on EMI, like myself, knows
the unhappy corruption that we all share, regardless of the size of our comparative reputations.
THat does not take an exceptional intellect, just 36 years of fighting alongside Erasure, Nick Cave,
and others on our label, who have been screwed by EMI badly.

I thank Mr Montoro, who knows far more than the idiots who, typically take me to task
whenever I defend anyone.The only true enemies I have are in the music business.
The rest of you are just a bunch of idiots who do not affect my reputation but could
stop judging what you refer to as dopefiends and get an idea of what it is like to
be run around by businessmen without souls and without ears.

It is unfortunate that you would prefer a singer-- whom others describe as avant-garde--
to ignore the misfortune of a musical colleague, because we are in different parts of the
musical continuum .Noone thinks like this anymore, unless you distrust Herbie Hancock
for appreciating the flawless musical time of Christina, do not recognize that Amy Winehouse
was a jazz singer, and do not remember the words of Duke Ellington. A great
musician is a great musician. We know each other. You don't. Who cares? The peanut
gallery is competely useless now, as you only steal all our music, and never pay for it.

Diamanda Galas

It is time to use your own names now, and stop this nonsense. A great singer
has died. Do you not realize her lineage to her who inspired us all, Aretha, her godmother,
another, Dionne Warwick, another, Cissy Houston? Do you actually believe
that nonpop singers are not hearbroken? What unmusical fools you are. I am disappointed
in you.

Use your ears, if you have any.

Thank you Mr Montoro. How nice to meet a man.
