The Tutu Revisited Follow-Up!!!!

Sup guys (& GIRLS)!!! For everyone who read [The Tutu Revisited 'Eff Up], we have an update for you!!!

A few days after my brash, immature and impolite rant (you're gonna have to deal with 'cos I don't plan on changing a thing!), I received the following email at info[at]nextbop[dot]com:

"I just read Tutu Revisited 'Eff Up...I'm Marcus Miller's manager. I'm actually a fan of nextbop and have been meaning to speak with [Christian] to find out how to contact you about getting Marcus on the site. Needless to say, Marcus and I really appreciate your enthusiasm and I'm glad to see you've posted the youtube videos."

To which I answered:

"First of all, I would like to personally apologize for the article which you read. There's a saying in French which goes something like: "the drop that makes the glass of water overflow". My frustration wasn't directed at your team, but at the jazz industry in general. You also have to understand that we target a new and younger audience for jazz, so you'll have to excuse my language on the website!

It would obviously be an honor to feature Marcus on the website. He's a musician that I've been following for a long time and I truly admire his work.

Thank you very much for your support and for your kind words. They mean the world to us!"

And the answer to that email was:

"Thanks so much for getting back to me. And thanks for your apology. I understand your frustration with the jazz industry, as you call it. It's up to artists to promote themselves and partner with people like you who have an honest passion for the music. I do understand your audience and those are exactly the people I'd like to target for Marcus. No need to apologize for your language either. I actually thought it was kind of funny. "

So Marcus Miller and his manager FUCKING ROCK!!!! Definitely go check out Tutu Revisited if it's coming within a 3h drive of where you live. It was one of the best shows I've seen in the past 365 days!!!! Otherwise, guess I can put those bootlegs back on Youtube and STAY TUNED to because Marcus "Motherfucking" Miller is COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
