    After that show Hammond said they weren't going to endorse the organ player. SS posted a photo (now gone) of blood on the keys!

    There has been an uproar since an interview,

    https://uproxx.com/indie/sturgill-simpson-interview-sound-and-fury-tour/

    people are not happy about him. It is fun to see whatever he does, people are not happy. I don't know if he knows what he is doing, or if he is stirring the pot, but he creates buzz.
    Have a good time.

    He bitches about his image, but that's his image. All a game.

    Dude sounds insufferable. Jesus, what a whiny baby. I get it. The music industry is corrupt and sleazy. But his perspective is out of whack. He forgets what it’s like to be an actual working stiff. “Oh, my art.”

    Piss off, Sturgill. You’re a country singer.

    I had heard some rumblings about that interview, but that was the first time I sat down and read it. I like Sturgill's music up to his latest album. But I think my support of him is over. His bad mouthing Dave Cobb and the jabs at Stapleton just make me not like him.

    He is going to do whatever he pleases. I don't care if he doesn't want to fill in statdiums, or playu clubs. He is who he is.

    I thought he laid it all out pretty clearly.

    He brought tears to my eyes on that performance. I don't care what he says.
