I just had to share my thoughts on the matter, especially because it's one of the bands that's close to my heart.

I've read a lot more and dug up far more things from this since I've read the article this morning. I've encountered passed backlash from Alissa (the current singer) with her previous band The Agonist due to this.

It just saddens me that a band whose image is of "attack the rules of a system" and uses a lot of the same arguments to defend their brand and concept would do the complete opposite when it's about other people's material.

Even if the guy was a total douche and really tried to do the things that both Angela (AE's current manager) and Alissa claimed, he would still have THE RIGHT TO DO IT! Since it's his work, he has the right to do anything he pleases with it.

This comes off as if I had to pay Fender for any music I make since I use their guitar on the records. It's what the defense's argument sounds to me when I hear "we have permission to do it because it was a picture of a piece of clothing in MY body".

It's still HIS work and the whole "exposure argument" has been constantly used for ages and it's a sure way to kill the creative development of a lot of people. Even though we all have a passion for our art, if it doesn't get us basic survival necessities, we will have to sacrifice it to a certain degree for it.

And that's why many of us tend to stop pursuing a career and turn our craft into a hobby. It's because of stuff like this.

However, I don't accept that people criticize AE's art because of that. This has nothing to do with it as well.

Just good artists who have done a disservice to a creative environment and are suffering a deserving backlash from it, from my point of view at least.

Quick side note since I've made my stand on Article 13 which can relate to this matter. This is why it was brought up and deservingly. I still maintain that it's not the way to turn this type of events around.

Original lesson: Stoner for Strat (rhythm & solo) by Darius Wave

Tried to take in some feedback from Darius regarding tone for the humbucker, the attitude from Kris which I was able to show but still trying to find a balance sweet spot and overall playing :)
