Paul Anka is an Entertainer. Professional musicians work for HIM.vonbraig said:No sense being a professional musician if you are an amature human being.
I think he was angry at his crew, and 'music director' types, not sidemen.Merlin said:I've worked with Anka on a couple of occasions. I'd heard that clip before I did, so I was cautious. He was quite gracious with the band, and even took us out to dinner after one of the shows, since he felt that the rehearsal had been tedious for us.
I agree. And he was so polite too (for an Australian ). I actually didn;t think Buddy sounded anything like as much of a as Anka. To me he sounded very tired and stressed. Anka sounded to me like he was just enjoying the power and bullying his employees for a bit of fun. Nonetheless, taken out of context, these clips can always be a bit unfair. Some people do "lose it" now and then but it's understood within their circle as "his bark is worse than his bite" kind of thing.
