Matthew Good played in Brockville, Ontario the other day. His bass player, Milos, made some rather rude tweets about the town and was called out by a city Councillor. Matthew Good made an apology on his blog about it

Apology

Apparently he has also offended the towns of Fredericton and Levis with his tweets as well.

Yeah, I saw this because my brother's girflriend (who is from Brockville) posted it on Facebook with this to say:

My hometown hosted Matthew Good last night... this is what the bassist had to say about the city. Unbelievable. So disrespectful to the people that are PAYING to see you play. I have said some things about Brockville in the past. But it's not a bad place. There are many great people who live there, and it has a beautiful downtown and history. Not to mention that suicide should never be a joke. If you have to use the pain and suffering of others to be "funny" then you're not that funny bro.

to be honest, I've lost a friend to suicide, and the joke doesn't really bother me. But it seems like the entire town is pissed off over a bad joke, and whether he meant it or not, he should give a sincere apology, especially if he considers himself in any way professional

What I don't like is that dumbasses are pinning this to the whole band, like Matthew Good himself is somehow to blame just because his bassist made some tasteless jokes.

I don't see what the fuss is about, it's not as if he was making fun of an actual person who comitted suicide
I have nothing important to say
#6
He's not, but he, as a former public figure, should understand that the people in his employ need to use as much professionalism in their conduct as he does. Especially after Good has previously had to apologize to two previous towns for the exact same issue.

Americans offended by everything. Was it in bad taste? yes. Does the guy need to grow up? probably.

Is there really a band name called Matthew Good? Not even "Matthew Good Band" or something stupid like that?


Oh yeah, the suicide thing. The only thing that offends me is that the joke is shit.

The Matthew Good Band was Matthew Good's original band. Can't believe you guys haven't heard of them since they were pretty big in the late 90s, and had several hit singles ("Apparitions", "Load Me Up", "Everything Is Automatic", "Indestructible", "Strange Days", "Hello Time Bomb", a lot of singles lol). Anyway, he's just doing his solo stuff now, so it's just Matthew Good... Because his name is Matthew Good lol.

The guy grew up in Serbia...the macabre sense of humor that MG talks about probably kept Milos from killing himself when he was growing up with death all around him.

Sooo much butthurt on that facebook page. A majority of people have a hard time keeping their cool when it comes to objecting something that a person has said; that they themselves end up saying equally foul things right back. Yeah, classy.

I really dig Matthew Good, and I literally feel nothing from what that guy tweeted. People just gotta learn to stop giving a shit, but then again... this is the internet.

wow, they really love their town...and teenage suicide victims...

I must say that was a well spoken and concise response by Matt Good. You've definitely got to give the guy props for the amount of thought and intelligence he put into it.

Brockville is to Ontario what Quebec is to Canada.

It's true, though that can be said about a lot of cities in Ontario lol *cough*Hamilton*cough*

Also, how has no one heard of Matthew Good Band?! They weren't exactly obscure back in the day lol. If none of you have heard of any of the following songs, then my world is just gonna flip upside down.

Every town gets made fun of, what's new. And anyone who's personally dealt with suicide has thick enough skin to not give a shit about people joking about it. Pussies.

Don't give a ****. He plays bass. Come back when he can influence policy or a significant amount of people.

(I also play bass, I meant that in the, so ****ing what? sort of way, not derogatorily toward bass players)

If one had a prejudice against the bass, would they be a bassist?
