Re: Rashawn's Gorge Instagram Post

It's so awful and terrible for Rashawn to say such a thing. It's like Dave saying he brought the original five together to start the band. Dreadful. Horrendous. How dare he . . .

    Seriously though. Rashawn saying that says a lot about what he and the band think of Buddy

    Rashawn is so full of himself. Itís the whole tone, and itís not just this example. I wish the band would fire him. I hate him in the band, and his attitude.

    What pisses me off is that everyone else in the band is pretty humble. Nobody is is a showboat like him.

    I know that Buddy was a connection of Rashawn's and that Rashawn has been instrumental in part of the direction the band is currently going in, but I was a bit taken back by his instagram that took what could be read as 100% of the credit for getting Buddy into DMB. His post says "Bringing buddy into this band is probably the most profound musical decision Iíve ever made"

    He also turned comments off on the post, which looks like he does every once in a while.

    If I were the band, and this weren't entirely true and discussed, I'd have to look at his post as a little out of line. I wonder if internally it's accepted that the decision to bring Buddy into the band was Rashawn's? What do you all think?
    Iím not really sure how people are reading into this.

    If he was the one to recommend Buddy to Dave and the band, and they were impressed and said yes, that is Rashawn ďbringing him into the band.Ē

    Knowing he is the link, Iíd read that as his decision to connect Buddy and the band, not the actual act of hiring him. And because he did connect them, things happened the way they did this past weekend.

    Itís not really a brag - they had a ďprofoundĒ experience this weekend. Heís sharing it.

    Jfc, get a grip people.

    If I recommended someone at my job, the owner hired them, and they turned out to be awesome, I would probably say something along the lines of "I'm really glad I brought this person into the restaurant."
    That doesn't mean I think I own the restaurant.

    Rashawn was literally directing/conducting the band this weekend especially when Tony Hall was on stage. He put in some serious work trying to keep things on the rails.

    You just referenced the Wizards teams that missed the playoffs? So Rashawn is the coach that can't get a team with an older MJ into the playoffs in a weak Eastern conference? Ok. Odd comparison.

    Just read the post, a little over-emotional for how I would word certain things but everyone has their own style, zero issues with the post

    Ridiculous that people could get worked up over the wording of that post. Dude was on an emotional high, just got done filling in for Carter as the musical director, and was proud of his boy for stepping up and playing the drums all weekend.

    The hate for Rashawn here usually cracks me up, but this is next level ďmountain-outta-mole-hillĒ behavior.

    Honestly thought the same thing. This dude's post seemed more negative than anything I've ever heard Rashawn say or do.

    And as someone who has been a touring musician, that shit is tough. Are people really hating on him cause he's human and admitted that it isn't all sunshine and rainbows on the road?

    I get it. But wouldnít it be better to say something along the lines of, ďIím really glad I introduced this person to my friends at the restaurant and it worked outĒ. His post reads like it was his sole decision.

    I know itís all semantics but he comes across as arrogant, at least to me. More often than not. That being said, Iíve enjoyed having him with the band since I first saw him play in 05.

    Who the hell cares if RR is or comes off a little arrogant? He is incredibly talented and accomplished. Many people are far more arrogant with much less reason to be. If you don't like the way he comes across on IG don't follow him.

    I have very little sympathy for famous people, because most of the time it's the life they chose to lead. But I would hate to have everything I say and do picked to pieces. No one can live up to the righteousness that is expected. Best case Rashawn worked really hard this weekend to pull something off when most others would have cancelled, and is/was emotional and proud of what he accomplished. Or perhaps he is arrogant. Either way, who cares?

    Re: Rashawn's Gorge Instagram Post

    A bizarre narrative/pipe dream that these vocal Rashawn haters seem to have is that they feel that Rashawn is STILL only temporary and they can't wait until DMB finally drops him. But homeboy has been in the band for 16 years. Which is over half the time of the band's entire existence. Which is nearly as long as LeRoi himself was in the band. And he's contributed an absurd amount to the band in that time, least of which is the actual music he plays (which is still hugely significant). At this point, if you "hate the sound Rashawn brings" you hate DMB. Full stop.

    Edit: I recognize that this post is not totally on topic of this silly OP, but to me that's the underlying message. Like Rashawn is still somehow the outsider and how dare he claim credit for this, lest he upset the band.
