Okay, we get it. Obviously the gig in London was a private affair. And not knowing all of the circumstances surrounding it, I’ll refrain from making any comment about your choice to accept it. But what PISSES ME OFF is that, what little was revealed to us about it, came from @RedBarnSurrey; A complete fucking stranger. If THEY were able to say something about it, surely you could have as well. Instead, all we got from you the whole trip is yet more reminders that you’re fond of your liquor!!! 🍸🍺🍷😂😂😂 (Although, I will admit we did have a little fun with you in NYC)
Don’t you get that your fans are THIRSTY for what you’re keeping inside??? (See what i did there? 😉) A little news about what’s going on with you, with your music, would go a long way to breathe life into the fan club!!! Or isnt that important to you anymore ??? If you can find the time to travel all the way to the UK for one fan’s birthday party, surely you can find a moment each day to MAKE the day of one of your thousands of other loyal fans by replying to their tweet or DM, or to say “hi” or to say something funny or to say something profound or to say something completely pointless!!! Instead, you give us “the cold shoulder”… you keep us in the dark.
“Thought we were more than an AFTERTHOUGHT” (See what I did THERE? 😉)
The truth is, you have every right to your privacy. Your only REAL obligation to your fans is to share your music with us. However, I know I speak for many of us in saying that we’re more than just fans of the music. We’re fans of YOU. Fans of your story. Fans of your fucking eyebrows!!! 😂😂😂
You’re at a point in your life where you’re opening new doors of knowledge, opportunity and experience. As you put it, “There is no shame in stopping for a minute, examine who you are and start to think about who you want to be in the future”. Yet, at the same time, you’re still, apparently, albeit a little less vigorously, still pursuing your music. And as long as you are, don’t you think it’s important and worth the effort to maintain just a little more engagement with your fans? Or do we expect too much?
No, Greyson, you have nothing to be ashamed of and so much to be proud of.
Wherever your life’s journey leads you, know that you will forever be a part of music history, you will forever be a part of our lives and you will forever have our support, our blessing and our love.
Sincerely and on behalf of (many of) your fans,
Now that Greyson’s dirty little secret is out in the open, I thought I’d share my story about the Camel Blues. It was around a year ago that I attended Greyson’s show in New York City, Webster Hall, where Greyson signed this pack of Camel Blues for me, with just a hint of a chuckle as he did so. I actually took 20 packs, (an entire carton) to the show that night. I thought about distributing them to some of the fans to throw up on the stage at the end of the show. But, regrettably, I wussed out. Plus I didn’t want to give up my spot right next to Greyson’s merch table where he would be showing up at the end of the show.
There may be other fans out there to whom he revealed his secret. This is my story.
Back in the old days, just after the release of ‘AFTERLIFE’, when Greyson would actually reply to my DM’s every now and then, I sent him this random question:
My curiosity was triggered by some of Greyson’s earlier posts on his social media referencing cigarettes or smoking (which was of grave concern to some of his fans). And also by the line in ‘AFTERLIFE’: “…moving by cigarette light…”
As luck would have it, he replied almost immediately:
I’m sure Greyson must have expected and hoped, that, like any good fangirl worth her salt, I would blab this revelation all over Twitter. Instead, I chose to harbor his deep, dark secret. I refused to be a part of his little ploy by doing his dirty work for him…like I’m his fucking “toadie.” (Google it 😉) I figured, in time, he would find his balls and reveal his filthy habit on his own. In true Greyson form, he eventually (and ever so gradually) let us in on his sordid secret lifestyle …in dribs and drabs.
Here’s Greyson “acting” 😀
My guess is that he started smoking in that summer of 2013 that he spent with his hillbilly cousins in Tennessee !!! (No offense)😂 But that’s just speculation on my part. In any case, I hope he’ll eventually see the error of his ways and break himself of this most unattractive and unhealthy habit. That will be rather difficult for him when the consensus among most fangirls is “GREYSON YOU SHOULD STOP SMOKING!!! But it sure makes you look HOT!!!”
I’m currently working on getting him to reveal if he’s dating someone. This might explain his excruciating relative absence from his Social Media.
Your long-awaited documentary is beautiful. Beautifully shot, beautifully written, beautifully produced, and beautifully and honestly told by you. Congratulations on a job well done!
HOWEVER I must protest!!! (As usual)
And I quote (you):
“If people don’t like this shit, maybe I SHOULD go get a job in construction”
And yes, I know you’re speaking metaphorically. But what? …Politics? Journalism? Education? Modelling, even? Yes, you’d be well suited to any of those professions. But ask yourself, would you be AS passionate with any one of those as you are with music? Please tell me I haven’t hung around here for nearly seven years only to watch you throw in the towel!!!
You’d be committing a GRAVE SIN depriving the world of your talent!!!
Cuz at the ripe old age of 19 you don’t have a big hit record in the USA yet???
Cuz one fucking prick said “you’re good but you’re not great”???
Cuz you had to cancel one fucking show???
Maybe even cuz you personally invested a small fortune this past year? (Just speculating there)
Certainly the last six-plus years have been an emotional roller coaster for you and I suspect this past year has been no different. As you take your retreat back home, in the good hands of your family and friends, the best wisdom I can offer is that instant fame is NOT the only path to “success” in music. In fact it is a rarity for those who have been blessed with longevity in the industry. I REFUSE to believe that your audience, a larger, more diverse audience, isn’t out there. FIND THEM!!!
DON’T LEAVE YOUR STORY UNTOLD.
But, in the end, you have to write your own story. You have to find your own success, your own happiness, your own Music. And, above all, be at peace with it.
will always be special to me. It marked a new “turn” on Greyson’s journey;
It was/is a clear indication of his commitment to continue that journey. I’m not ashamed to say that the Henson Studio video performance of ‘Afterlife’ literally brought tears to my eyes. It was a stunning display of his evolution as an artist.
According to Alex, Greyson is “focusing and writing”. Currently Greyson is, even more than usual, keeping a low-profile on his social media. Now back in Oklahoma, he stated, in his recent question and answer, “I think I’m the happiest I’ve ever been”. Perhaps it’s because an emotionally draining year of struggles and “twists and turns”, culminating in the release and promotion of ‘Somewhere Over My Head’, is finally over.
His most recent tweets and snaps suggest that more new music is on the horizon. The accoustic version of ‘Anything’ appears to be in production. We’re all anxiously awaiting studio cuts of ‘Seasons’ . ‘Stand’ . ‘London’
Let’s all give him some space 😉
The Journey Continues.
If anyone’s interested in a more in-depth and critical assessment of this past year for Greyson, poke around on this blog site. It won’t be hard to find.
And you might find some other revealing things 🙂
