Default Counting Crows frontman slams ''fans'' - read this!!

This has been simmering for a good while on the bands msg board, VERY like how it is sometimes on this board, some ''fans'' branding them sellouts etc, and Adam (the lead singer) has always posted msgs to the fans...heres the latest one!

05.05.05 - New York, NY 11:00 P.M.
Gee, did you ever wonder what it's like to have a website filled with fans who love you and your work and are genuinely decent caring people? Me too. Remind me to ask my friend Mary-Louise sometime. Then I can come back here and tell you all about it. First you complain when we have the audacity to help raise a million dollars for charities here in New York because you got left out. Then you talk about what sellouts we are for letting the gap set up a FREE show so a bunch of you can see us. FOR FREE. Last, you dump all your venom and bullshit "disillusionment" philosophy on a bunch of people who are simply trying to do something nice for someone they love and admire.

I almost said people "like yourselves", but I think we all know why that would be grossly incorrect. They contacted me about writing something here on the site to see if any of you were interested, but I was afraid ML would find out if I wrote something on the front page. I suggested one of them write something on the board as it's much more hidden. I should have known what a horrible idea that was. It's not that you should be interested in any way necessarily. It's not like you need to interested at all. It's just that you're such snotty little condescending assholes about your disinterest. Does every discussion have to turn into something where you all show off your high minded superiority to the the "dirty capitalist entertainment industry"? Don't you ever get tired of listening to yourselves? I know I do. And you wonder why I choose not to communicate with you lately. I wonder why anyone would.

I know we have a ton of nice fans because I meet so many of you after every show. Where are you? And isn't there a Counting Assholes board out there where the rest of you can spend your time shitting all over each other.


Wish we could get a msg like this from Jon and the guys

Don't look up on your movie screens
In record stores or magazines
Close your eyes and you will see
That you are all you really need

I love Adam. I've read several messages where he takes the piss out of the board people and I don't blame him a bit.

I wonder if people who post on band message boards actually represent the 'average' fan?
Why wonít you say something now
Donít leave me hanging
Cut me down
I miss the fire that was once in your eyes
Well come on and say something now

Send a message via MSN to Jim Bon Jovi

he's a fanny and probably more like the tits on his board than he'd like to think but anyone who's brave or stupid enough to bite the hand that feeds them is cool in my books
the dude abides

"You can say anything you want. It's the way you say it that exposes the brown. You can either come off as sarcastic and caustically charming, the way I do, or you can come off like a snotty little frustrated 15 yr old. I wish you all the best of luck."
