As a follow up to yesterday's post, Amanda Palmer has responded to one musician critical of her decision to not pay horn and string players on her tour.
Different culture, whatever. May make a decision to pass the hat, fair enough. I'm not in her position, but it's not necessarily how I'd do things.
I volunteer my time too, right? Why should it be different for musicians? It's a new world.
Again, Palmer really knows knows how to market herself - and to keep in touch with her base.
