sometimes people just do stupid things without even realize how stupid are those things. even smart people, or those who we think they are, do so.
that was what came to my mind when i read the story about robert plant who demanded a london bar to stop playing radiohead on its sound system. apparently he felt his night was being ruined by the five-piece’s music which he branded as “rhyming crap”. at the time the led zeppelin rocker was drinking with a woman.
why, i just could not believe what he did. someone who has been a hero to millions of fans worldwide all these years acted just like he has no respect for other people’s work? no kidding. but that was what happened. i felt really bad about it. i was like, “doesn’t he know that we will get no respect until we respect ourselves?” and it is widely believe that we respect ourselves by respecting others.
