Q – I have been to four of your shows in SF and never heard an audience yell out so many requests and so rudely. I hope it didn’t dampen your desire to return someday. Maybe you didn’t mind it, but I and others thought it was disrespectful. I enjoyed hearing your latest songs and am excited about your new CD. Please come back and hopefully your audience won’t be so drunk and rude. You deserve better.
A – I think that some folk were in rather too good a mood, maybe.. but maybe that’s a little mean spirited of me to say. It’s great to know that people are happy to see me, and that they are comfortable enough to make requests, but I think one or two particular characters were mistaking the concert for a private performance. There wan’t much I could do about it short of doing a Joni Mitchell. My audience usually polices itself pretty well..
