Music vet and New Times scribe Lee Zimmerman offers his insights, opinions and observations about the local scene. This week: Fueling some feedback...
It goes without saying that one of the hazards of being a writer is having to open yourself up to feedback, either positive or negative, and in fact, usually more of the latter. There are
those who may take issue with my opinions, and that too is only natural.
Admittedly, I was a bit thin-skinned when I was ripped for my alleged
harassment of the Rolling Stones during an unexpected encounter in the
Virgin Islands, and I was
pummeled when I expressed bemusement at Tori Amos' apparent emotional
breakdown at a Miami Beach concert several years back. It's always good
when someone reminds you of your insensitivity. Not. The fact is, I welcome reader comments for
better or for worse, simply because it tells me people are reading.
must say, though, that last week I received perhaps the greatest
recognition ever accorded for one of my ramblings. The blog site
belonging to NPR (National Public Radio) contained a commentary written
by Marc Hirsh, a music writer for the Boston Globe who opted to refute several points in my birthday blog about Kate Bush.
