Apparently my comments caused some unnecessary distress.
Yes, I meant the previews, so I apologize for the confusion.
Aside from that, I do stand by the rest of what I said. If Captain has the desire and the opportunity to compose for film, I hope he does it.
Well said, Admin.
Sometimes there are fans who, in their zeal, tend to believe that there's some sort of belonging, some sort of ownership. "This is my
favorite band! Now they're really big, but I
was there at the beginning! I've met them so many times!" Etc. etc.
Of course, most wouldn't say stuff like that out loud.
But some fans forget that this sort of ownership does not exist. It starts and ends with the music. The band creates their art, and the public buys it. Or not. But a good band most times will never ask for more than that because someone will always end up disappointed and unsatisfied. Great bands create music to create music, not to merely please people or to just crank out a product.
Sadly, I've seen this invisible ownership (and I myself am not immune to it) already emerge here. I think it began about when RR came out and we suddenly heard something different. It was harsher, it was aggressive, and electric, a little angry, and darker than what we were used to. Some actually said, "This isn't POTF music!" Um...yeah, it is. I remember some were acting as if they were offended, as if they'd been wronged somehow, and that's just so silly. It's human nature, too, but it's silly.
In the end I'm so grateful that we have a band that refuses to kowtow to big music bigwigs. Sure, I suppose it also means a lot more work and a lot less promotion and advertisements, but at least I am confident that what I hear is genuine art.
I hope that makes sense.
And now, back your your regular local topic!
