“There is no such thing as bad publicity” - P.T. Barnum. That’s not necessarily true in the age of social media. David Crosby found that out this week.
He was asked by one of his twitter followers for his thoughts on the death of Eddie Van Halen. Crosby tweeted “Meh”.
Many fans and other artists were, not surprisingly, extremely unhappy with his tweet. L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns and Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) tweets sum up how most people, especially fans of Eddie Van Halen feel
