Via our delicious reader Marshie, an appalling anecdote about something that happened during the PR events for Rolando Villazon's new CD; an ugly show of disrespect for la signora Cheryl Studer that fortunately found its way to the Spanish press, for all the world to see:
When (Studer) arrived ... no one from the organization got up to greet her. The international head of the company, at the end of the supper, thanked some of those present, such as conductor Paul McCreesh, but not a word for Studer.
So, either the record company people did not know who Studer is, or she no longer matters to them because she can't get them a bonus at the end of the year? There are only these two answers, and I prefer the former. Better ignorant than ungrateful, using artists like Kleenex tissues. In what hands they are the record companies?
Bad, bad show. Terrible, really. Who are these people?
