Critics

I just saw an interview with Philip Glass, the composer.  I like his soundtracks a LOT.  Kundun, Dracula, The Hours: he’s composed mesmerizing music, imo.

Well, he’s related that during his early concerts, there would be people in the audience who would stand up and scream during the performance.  They would throw eggs!  EGGS?  Do people really do that???

They wouldn’t just leave after that.  They would stay and disrupt.

Philip said it was clearly a political act.  Who just carries eggs in their pockets?

That made me think: if he could survive that pure vitriol, yet remain an artist, and become a success….well, then any artist should be able to suffer the slings and arrows.

It’s just an excellent reminder…….
