Really interesting interview with one of the EE guys (must be Jeremy…he talks about Blur!) on Russian blog Apelzin.ru where he chats about the band’s use of social media, the label ‘pop music’, opinions on music streaming services and several other topics. Here’s what he had to say about reading comments:
I don’t personally look at YouTube because it tends to be where the real nutters are, in my experience. But Jon I think is quite aware of it. I do look at Twitter and sometimes Facebook as well, but I stay away from YouTube as it tends to be a hotbed of infighting and bickering. I don’t know why people feel like they have to be so critical of everything all the time, its just pointless. I’m not talking about us now I’m just talking generally, the Internet has given voice to everybody, its true.. but I think a lot of people say things that they wouldn’t necessarily say face to face.
