Ex­ploita­tion the rule on mu­sic scene

NOW Magazine - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

I’d like to take the con­ver­sa­tion on safety at mu­sic venues (NOW, June 7-13) a step fur­ther. Be­cause let’s not for­get that in­ter­per­sonal abuse and ex­ploita­tion among mu­si­cians is the rule, not the ex­cep­tion, and it takes hun­dreds of snakey, de­struc­tive forms. Their par­a­sitic life­style makes these over­whelm­ingly male mu­si­cians re­ally dan­ger­ous peo­ple to know. I lived it 20 years ago. And those guys are still out there.
