When Robbie writes opening lines that come close to "I was a teenage stamp collector, I'd lie on my back and you'd stamp on my face" he can pipe up. Until then, stuff it.
@thisismymistake hear hear Sir!
because his level of anti-meat is pretentious and oversteps so many bounds it's not funny... (I speak from professional experience)... when M plays your venue, no meat allowed for anyone. Fuck him.
sorry, hehe, this jam touched a professionalism nerve.
PS, he's also one of those douches that won't any locals look at him. Our deck Audio hand was required to be outside the venue proper. I was the only one granted priveledges (cause I was a Truss Spot). Artists like that tick me off, no matter the talent level on stage.
@clickysounds we're brothers in arms - M came to the theatre I used to work at a few years ago - ALL leather sofas had to be removed from ALL dressing rooms. and he's responsible for me having to beat the streets of Sunderland for fakey bacon and non-supermarket label Chablis (the catering manager gave me £7!). The non-eye contact thing is true too. i only wish we'd carried through my plan to line up the entire local crew with kebabs in the wings as he left the stage. i could go on. and on.
@LadyGulag @thisismymistake @antonywaltjarv LOL Pretty much ever crew dreams of pulling that stunt (or something similiar). Treat us with respect and you get the same. I'm sure some crew will do it (or has done it, hence the crazy rules).
I actually "don't mind" the madness that ensues regarding the things provided for the artist, lots of artists are a little whacky about their own food and dressing room etc, but when those sort of demands spill out into the entire venue. Bah!
