Dear Dave Matthews Band,
Wow. I’ve been your willing audio slave for over 4 years now. Imagine that! We’ve been through 4 concerts and countless new CDs. You release a CD every few months now — most of them live shows in places way cooler than Camden, NJ. And that’s great.
But lately…I dunno…I’m starting to feel a bit used. Like you take it forgranted that I’m going to buy every live CD that you do. I got the “Red Rocks” one for Christmas. And it was fantastic (esp “Hunger for the Great Light” — you know how I feel about that one). But it seemed comfortable…too comfortable.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I think I want to start seeing other bands. I…um….met some Barenaked Ladies music over the last few weeks. And I had a fun time listening to them. They’re pretty cool, and I hear they do great live shows too.
But I still want to be friends and even see you regularly. Just not exclusively. I hope you’ll understand.
