When Musicians Misbehave

RECEIVED Tue., Sept. 14, 2004

Dear Editor,
   At a recent joint meeting of the Austin Music Commission and city of Austin Telecommunications Commission held on Sept. 8, a very heated exchange developed between infowarrior Alex Jones and musician Natalie Zoe, resulting in Zoe throwing her books on the table and screaming at Mr. Jones and the audience that she had had it. She turned and stormed out of the meeting like an undisciplined child having a temper tantrum. Earlier, Zoe had stated that she represents Austin musicians as vice-chair of the Austin Music Commission. This kind of behavior from someone who holds that position is deplorable and unacceptable. As an Austin musician, I do not want to be represented by one who publicly behaves so badly, gives up, and walks out of such an important meeting. I believe Ms. Zoe should immediately step down from her position for this irresponsible behavior.
