some people need to sit down and realize that bands get bigger. that they are not “theirs” and that no matter how long you’ve been a fan, things are going to change whether you want them to or not. stop making “new fans” sound like such a bad thing when it’s those fans that are what’s keeping the band going. stop saying “it’s not how it used to be” because of course it’s not and it won’t be. a band gets bigger, which is the point of starting a band in the first place.
