PropertyOfZack Contributor Blog : : Curran Blevins

Words of Truth. With the internet, people feel entitled to access everything. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, if you wouldn’t do/say it to a random stranger on the street, why do/say it to a celebrity? If you would be outraged by the question, so would they. They’re people just like everyone else, respect their privacy

PropertyOfZack welcomes back Curran Blevins for his second Contributor Blog. Curran’s first blog was a huge success, so we are thrilled to have him back. This specific entry from Curran revolves around how any privacy bands once had has now disappeared due to a new era in fans and social technologies and how fans are disrespectful and expect too much out of their favorite bands. It’s a great and worthwhile read, so catch up on it below!

There is no safe haven, there is no quiet time, and there isn’t anywhere you can go to have a so-called personal life while on the road anymore. There are no longer secrets left for the minds of the fans. Every question is answered, every autograph request met, and every photo taken time and time again. There is no longer a line that separates bands from their fans, but yet in reality it is the exact opposite. The playing field has been completely leveled, and the idea of a Rock Star has become a thing of the past.
