Exploitation the rule on music scene
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.
