Funny thing is, Paul's really mellowed out over the years.
Met him with a friend on the All Shook Down tour in 91 and he was a cock and wouldnt sign shit or talk to anybody.
Met him again in 93 and he was a total gent.
As a designer, I would have to take issue against stuff thats too "designery" here too.
Not to get into a flamewar but there are tons of posters on here that are basically pretty images, unrelated to bands in tone or concept. Alot of them are lauded and quite a few make POTW.
And youll notice a direct pattern between the laudits and certain "name" designers too.
Im sorry, maybe its a different and totally valid school of thought and I just dont "get" it, but I think its kinda invalid to submit say (and this is JUST an example - not specific) a beautiful illo of like a sailboat and then have like "Pedro The Lion" or something along the bottom in 12 pt text. Sorry, I just think thats wanky.
I could be wrong, and my work isnt all that great and I make mistakes invariably.
But I dont buy into that. Im not saying the poster has to directly reference a lyric or a title or anything, but I call "bullshit" on alot of these nice, boutiquey posters that bear little relation to the acts they claim to represent.
