Patterson Hood Responds To Lefsetz

Patterson Hood Responds To Lefsetz

Patterson Hood responds to Bob Lefsetz regarding an Alabama Shakes email from yesterday.

“From: Patterson Hood
Re-Alabama Shakes

Mr. Lefsetz,

I’m sure you have been inundated with letters (pro and con) about your column about Alabama Shakes.

Taste is rather subjective and I’m not going to waste yours or my own time trying to convince of their charms.

I’m really only responding because I awoke this morning and was forwarded some bullshit with my name all over it telling some story of how I supposedly have created this huge hype machine for said band and how I have overnight become a “Tastemaker”.
(Shit, I wish).

I’ve made it my policy of never answering bad reviews nor giving much thought to anonymous postings, but since your blog goes out to surely dozens of people (I’m a pretty big fan myself, even when I disagree and more often I don’t) and there were allegations that I am somehow profiting from “the hype”, I thought that I would at least clear up a couple of factual errors.

For the record, I have ABSOLUTELY NO FINANCIAL TIES TO ALABAMA SHAKES.

Jason Mantzoukas of The League :: Top 11 Albums

“I am day drunk, get ready to see my dick.”

I recently asked Jason Mantzoukas of Parks and Recreations, Enlightened, and The League to list his top 11 favorite albums of 2011. Mantzoukas is one of the funniest up-and-coming comedic actors out today. In The League, his character Rafi steals the show in every scene he is in. While Rafi is a huge Hoobastank fan, Mantzoukas made some excellent albums selections. Look for Mantzoukas to have a breakout year in 2012.
