Well he stopped short of saying: "goulash eaters! bow down before my greatness!" so at least that's something.Originally posted by Skipper
Is it possible for this guy to be any more of a dink?
god forbid anyone ask me to do anything during my gig!
I believe Max was referring to another thread on his board from eons ago that has since turned into a bit of a running joke for people who post on the board. It stemmed from a gig in Bulgaria. You have to understand the context - I think the eastern europe comment is meant a joke more than anything.Originally posted by Skipper
It was this comment that drew my attention, not the fact that he didn't play the request:
"hahaha and music taste is not a learned trait, its just that, taste. ahh eastern europe, providing more entertainment for this board than anyone else by far.
If they had requested some cheesey retro remixes, which Max appears to love so much, would he have so bluntly declined?
Fair enough, but how many DJs out there ever really pay attention to fan requests? They might say things like "Sure! I will definitely play it!" or "I will see what I can do," knowing full well they aren't going to play it.Originally posted by Skipper
it just baffles me how max responds to his fans, like "as if I could be bothered to play a track for you! how hilarious is that!"
Yes but you should have heard what Carl Cox's rider was all about. You would have the same passion also if you got all of that.Originally posted by Skipper
After seeing a DJ like Carl Cox on the weekend (and reading several recent interviews since then), who after 30+ years still has the same passion for music and appreciation for fans, it just baffles me how max responds to his fans, like "as if I could be bothered to play a track for you! how hilarious is that!"
Do tell...i've heard Tiesto looks for cheese and crackers. I can't imagine what a behemouth like Cox would have.Originally posted by poker face

so, you start a thread bitching about max acting all self-important, and then later you bump that same thread to act all self-important yourself.Originally posted by Skipper
I happened to sit next to Max Graham today while out having lunch downtown today and I'm pretty sure he was talking about this thread.
