I think you make some great points. But a bigger question: do we demand to know/like/own our favorite artists too much?

I mean, thanks to things like Twitter and Instagram Stereogum, we’re encouraged to engage with people beyond the albums and vetted productions of these artists. If you want to know what Darnielle is reading or what Questlove’s eating on the plane, you can.

But they’re people. Some of them are unbalanced. Some of them are depressed. Some of them are going to have embarrassing streaks and do destructive things. And it’s not new. Lennon was an asshole. At least he didn’t have Twitter.

Just remember that we were the ones who demanded all of this access in the first place.

Why are we assuming that a “cool pop song” has less merit than any other kind of song? Catchiness isn’t easy.

The Seeger record’s really, really great if you don’t bring your Springsteen baggage with you.
