Amanda Palmer, in her blog post today, has reversed her position and is now PAYING all of her participating musicians. Additionally, musicians who have already performed will be paid retroactively. Here’s a small sample of what Ms. Palmer wrote:
“the fact that we all have access to each other and CAN discuss this stuff in realtime is what has MADE my success possible, even if it means i’m tied to the stake every once in a while. i’ll take it.
for better or for worse, this whole kerfuffle has meant i’ve spent the past week thinking hard about this, listening to what everyone was saying and discussing. i hear you. i see your points. me and my band have discussed it at length. and we have decided we should pay all of our guest musicians. we have the power to do it, and we’re going to do it. (in fact, we started doing it three shows ago.)”
Thank you Ms. Palmer!
