Hey, listen, I understand your frustration and anger.
Remember, I manage The Doors, and I answer to them, and I cannot (and DO NOT) talk about anything, or do anything, or release anything, that they have not approved. I mean, it's my job, I guess, to take some of the flak, and for people to have a "person" to blame, be frustrated with, yell at, be disappointed with, etc.
And I'm not asking you to feel bad for me - I'm paid very well for the privilege of having the GREATEST job in the world. And I'm thrilled to do it.
But please, try not to think of me as "playing games" with you, or anyone else. The Doors can say whatever they want, at any time, to anyone they choose. It's their band, their career, and their legacy. But it's not MINE. So I take marching orders from them - and until they tell ME that I can talk about something......I just can't. Sorry, man.
Thanks Jeff. Hey listen, I understand YOUR position, have you been reading my posts the last few years???? I get it but don't tell us you scored something huge then don't tell us what's going on. I rather you say nothing till you can or ask them if you can let it out. To me saying "you won't believe what we just got" then say nothing is well....playing games. Sorry. I also understand you can't say anything till they ok it but did you ask them if you could???
Lastly, I'm not giving you "flak" I'm just being open with you and telling you how it looks on the outside. If it looks like flak well that wasn't my intention, that's what I hate about e-mails or whatever they sometimes come across a different way then you wanted. Look, I think you know where I stand as far as what YOU do and your staff, I think I've been pretty pretty pretty clear on that. Buuuuuuut sometimes I scratch my head a bit when it comes to giving us some info before we read it elsewhere on another website. I don't get that AT ALL!!!
Great to hear about London Fog gig should be a real trip. Thanks for answering a lot of questions on here. Very much appreciated. Be well.
