Azoff on Bronfman, Feedback

AZOFF ON BRONFMAN, FEEDBACK: Irving Azoff to Billboard on Edgar Bronfman Jr.’s testimony at the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearings last week on the UMG-EMI merger: “ I don't really know what his agenda is, but, gosh, he must have one. I was shocked by a lot of what came out of Edgar's mouth. Either he doesn't get it, or he was trying to twist some of what [Roger] Faxon, myself and [Lucian] Grainge were saying. [Bronfman] gleefully told the committee that he presided over two huge firings of both artists and employees at both Warner and Universal Polygram, and he was completely ignoring what Faxon was saying, which was that EMI has already done all the cutting, and he ignored what Lucian was saying, that, 'We're buying all this so we can make EMI great again.'" As for receiving any feedback about his comments: “I got a lot of e-mails from artists, including one from Jared Leto from 30 Seconds to Mars, an EMI artist, and I quote: ‘You and Lucian are killing it. Smart, clear, reasonable, great. The other folks look like bad guys whining in a Star Wars flick.’" (6/25p)
