Why, Jerry, why? I like it when artists speak their minds. Once upon a time, the fans listened to every word and never questioned the words of their idols. These days, it is different. Alice In Chain’s need to wake up and realise that it is a different game now.
“something you’ve worked on and poured your soul into, and invested your money in, somehow it’s no longer deemed valuable. That’s fucked up, to me. “
No Jerry, it is valuable to the people who find it valuable. Just because you spent two to three years creating your art, doesn’t mean that people will find it valuable to pay you for it. The ones that want to pay, will pay. They will also come to your shows, buy your merchandise and spend money on meet and greets.
The ones that don’t want to pay, will never have paid to begin with, even in the glory days of record label control.
To be honest, I heard the Alice In Chains comeback album and I didn’t like it. They should have called the band something different. So to be honest, I have no real interest in the upcoming album. According to Jerry, I should care because he spent time pouring his soul into the new album. Sorry guys, there is just too much competition these days for listeners attention these days.
