Antony Blackmails Bootlegging Fans
Published Mar 24, 2007Everyones favourite gender-bending cabaret singer Antony Hegarty has asked his fans stop illegally recording and trading his performances. On fan site Just One Star, Hegarty wrote: "Please stop recording my concerts and trading them, it makes me feel terrible. I feel like the thing I have to offer an audience is the live experience. But for them to record my concerts sort of feels like I am being stolen from. Its kind of like inviting people over for dinner and before they leave they go into your fridge and clear you out, take everything you have, on their way out the door. Hegarty also revealed that the experience has hindered him from finishing the much-anticipated third album with his band the Johnsons. "This year I was hoping to develop ideas for the new album and some live concerts, but at this rate I am feeling discouraged because of the bootlegging. So do me a favour... be my fan and my friend and dont record my shows.
