In the recently concluded PSMS show here in Manila (which I wasn't able to watch), MP had, for lack of a better term, a "meltdown" during their set. Or was it soundcheck? Not really sure. There's a video of it on youtube. It seems like the actual set but according to the description this was during soundcheck. I'd love to post it but it might violate forum rules.
Basically from what I heard, our Filipino techs failed to set it up right before the show started. So everything was kinda rushed pre-show. Mics and stands weren't set up properly, so the show was bound to be disrupted by technical problems. You get the gist.
MP gets pissed mid-set/soundcheck. He takes it out on the cymbal stands and whatnot. The Filipino's on the interwebz react negatively to it. Though petty, I can't help but defend MP on this.
Here's the thing, you finally get to play a country you've been wanting to play in for so long, then they give you THAT, you're bound to be frustrated and disappointed. One of the youtube comments said it really well, You guys are supposed to be catering to a world class drummer yet you set up his gear as if it were just some amateur battle of the bands competition
It just shows that we should be giving our best in what we do because there are other people who willingly their best for other people. From what I heard MP made amends with the crew, so it's all good.
MP, I would like to apologize on behalf of the Filipino's who dearly love you so much for that somewhat shitty incident that occured. I hope it doesn't ruin your view on our country because we would really love to have you perform once more here
Okay rant over. Now I can rest at peace.
