There was a time when I really wanted artists to take a more active role in embracing & using the internet. Now, the more they blog/Twitter the less enthused I am about the whole idea. While I like the insight & shared info, there’s part of me that just wants to have my artists make music & leave all the bemusings to us, the bloggers & fans. Perhaps, they acknowledge remarks said online, taking them into account as they create, but don’t fully engage themselves with things like Twitter allows. When they do that, we get updates on which chicken shack is better & “Dear John” letters to the game that are later recanted.
