Hates record companies (that got him to where he is today)Alternative theory
: He woke up to the fact that they are generally nowadays parasites
who do not give a flying f*ck about music....Royally fleecing music lovers with price fixing impunity, people who care only about profit margins and are in fact "Freeloaders" riding a great big gravy train
on others talent, on often ridiculous terms. Gone are the good old days of benevolent EMI etc, cut throat and ruthless now....worse than ever. Spit people out like they are nothing. Daddy may have bought them a Harvard business degree. But Daddy was lacking something else, a thing called Soul
....Which sadly (which if they had read the Good Book *TM*) they would know, all the money in the world cannot buy.
The Stone Roses went into their Companys offices and smashed the f*ck out the place after being unceremoniously ripped off
, and made a nice impromptu Jackson Pollock painting of the whole place. Epic. That
is rock and roll.
Could they have got there otherwise? Does a bear sh*t in the woods? Talent will always out. Just would have taken a bit longer. I take your point, but apparently they started off on good terms....then it went bad. He is famously "cold", and I've heard it said more than once that he hates many things. That's good in my book.
Anger is an energy. Rather see something genuine than some simpering, wet lettuce, couch supine dullard thanking all and sundry along with David Geffens accountant for "all that is good".
It might annoy some people that he doesn't agree with Rush Limbaugh, or *insert here*. He probably doesn't care. Rock on.
