Media Talks Back: To Praise Or Not To Praise
"When it comes to reviewing gigs or albums, my feeling is one has to be
absolutely honest – in whatever knowledge I have of the music scene,
trying to place that concert or CD where it sits in the bigger picture
of music, what’s successful and what’s not about it. I’ve been very rude
about some music, and of course it doesn’t make you friends, but
sometimes people say even afterwards, "Okay, I see what you were saying
with that, or I took advice from that”."
