I know I haven’t posted in years but I needed to get something off my chest (and I promise I’ll try to post more!)
I saw Bombay Bicycle Club tonight, I’ve been a massive fan since about 2009 and have seen them about 5 or 6 times now. They played a fantastic gig and afterwards they tweeted about their night out. Seeing as they were in my town I went to meet them. I met Jack, the lead singer, and he was just so rude. It’s like being a fan devalued me as a human to him. Is it the same with all bands? I told him I loved the gig and have been a fan for years. I wasn’t being all crazy or anything, I sat on a bar stool and just said it to him. Yet, after asking where to go and me suggesting a club down the road politely, he literally moved away from me to talk to non-fans. I wasn’t being nosy or invasive. I understand that celebs want their own room, but at the same time, it doesn’t seem fair to treat your fans like shit if they’re polite and have bought you drinks in compliment of the good job you did. Basically, I went right off Bombay Bicycle Club tonight. I walked home in sadness after meeting one of my idols. Like they say; never meet you idols. Such disappointment.
