YOU CAN COME DOWN AS FAST AS YOU GO UP

January 21, 2014

Success1Right after Woodstock a new trend began to take place in the US, and no I don’t mean free sex. The trend was the disrespect music and later motion picture had for fans. You know fans the people that made them what they were and without them, despite what some of them might think, they would be just like the rest of us struggling to get by. The first one that Jeff was personally involved with was Sly and the Family Stone who before Woodstock might get paid 5000 dollars for a concert but after Woodstock demanded 35,000 dollars a show and would decide he didn’t want to show up or would be to stoned to perform. Ramey Lewis was another after the success of his Jazz version of Hang on Sloopy Jeff and his friends had a front row table to see him at the Village Gate in New York City, but guess what he was a no show, this one didn’t turn out that bad as Thelonious Monk appeared in his place. Unfortunately for Mister Lewis his career went back to ordinary after that. In today’s entertainment world you have super stars like Rihanna and Beyonce that seem to think fans are just a necessary evil. You have people that are dependent on fans who disrespect them all the time. I understand that people resent the intrusion into their lives but if they didn’t want the acclaim maybe they should have been an accountant, not that’s a bad thing, but you’re not going to have people crying if you don’t show up for a concert. Hey I don’t have to worry about that Jeff worships me as all cat owners do to their cats after all CATS RULE this is his Majesty Flounder saying CIAO from Colombia.
