The Ashlee Simpson technical rider (1)

A reader comments on the recent feature on the technical rider in Ashlee Simpson's live sound contract...

"How in the hell can you do a piece on Ashlee simpson?    I wouldnt have minded so much if you did a piece on Christina or Britney (while I beleive they represent the worst in music), they are established artists who have something remotely interesting to record.  But Ashlee Simpson is  a hack and so are all who surround her.  My God, I would rather you do an article on Hillary Duff!  I am insider and I know she has lip synced on several occasions and is a laughing stock in the industry.  I thought it was hillarious that the whole world saw it on SNL.  Manilli Vanilli lives on!

"From someone who has worked in the industry (and by industry I mean post production, Live FOH, monitor mix and studio recording), I think I have stand on some ground to back up what I am saying.  You said that hopefuls should stop reading the magazines, like Mix and Electronic Musician and just read what you have to say (while I am sure you have some good stuff to say),  I couldnt disagree more.  If you seriosuly believe that Ashlee Simpson is a serious artist and that ANYONE cares what gear she or her asscoiates use, you are crazy!  I simpy cant take you seriously.  You have lost all credibility in my mind and anything you have to say is hogwash.  No one is such a whore that they can work with someone like her.  ARRRGG!!!!"
