It’s always interesting and a bit funny when people go at it in public. Apparently Brendan Perry of Dead Can Dance thought Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) wasted his time regarding an ill-fated tour they were planning together.
“The truth of the matter is that PM [Peter Murphy] wasted months of my time, energy and effort. It was he, after all, who invited me to tour with him and then reneged on our agreement not once, not twice but three times… can you imagine my frustration? … I would not have minded so much if he had shown some remorse by way of an apology, this would have been the very least I could expect from such an honorable and ‘spiritual’ man. Right? Well wrong… When I last wrote to him to enquire how he was and what the problem was, he basically told me to mind my own business… Cuckoo!” “The guy has too many albeit mysterious health issues to deal with and, to be honest, he’s a sandwich short of a picnic.” – Brendan Perry
And the response…
This reminds me a little of when techno legends Frankie Bones and Joey Beltram fought it out on various forums for a few months. Here’s my Wire to the Ear tip: keep your musician mystery alive by keeping these types of matters a private conversation.
