midnightmagic SFJ's Skippy has an interesting post on his e-mail. If it is true the Stones seem to freakin care about all the poor souls who are crying about their shitty seats.
Anyway I hope everything is true sounds awesome.

If someone needs it posted I will do it.

I like the "Chiba Chiba" on the bottom.

I'd like to see it. I got thrown of his list for questioning him as to why he swipes stuff and never gives credit.

FAN CLUB INTERVIEW


The Official Rolling Stones Fan Club has been upgrading tickets for fans who
mistakenly got bad tickets. Reports from several fans, myself included, have
been more than satisfied with their upgrades.

I asked several people who run or are directly connected with the The
Official Rolling Stones Fan Club some tough questions. These people range
from various entities who help make-up the The Official Rolling Stones Fan Club.



Skippy: How could people not get great seats in the first place if the
Official Rolling Stones Fan Club has these premium blocks of great seats?

Answer: They're not tradition blocks of seats all together in one section.
We do all we can to be fair. We give two to the fan club, then two to radio
station contest winners. We have a couple for band members and so on. So all
of the tickets are not together in a traditional block. They are smaller groups.

When we're dealing with a huge number of seats and requests we run in to
some problems. We do all we can to make good as quickly as we can when we
become aware of these problems. We have people who work all day long to make
sure everyone is well taken care of and it's a huge task. We have been
making great progress.


Skippy: How do you decide who gets the best seats through the Official
Rolling Stones Fan Club?

Answer: The first people who request tickets get the very best seats from
The Official Rolling Stones Fan Club.


Skippy: Why does it take so long to get the upgrades?

Answer: You should see the War Room! Much of the allocation is done
manually. Ticket upgrade process is a long and arduous task. The best thing
to do is to remain patient. There are people working all day long who deal
with not only upgrade requests who work with others who deal with many
others issues too.


Skippy: Why can we only get tickets to one show through the Official Rolling
Stones Fan Club?

Answer: We need to give all fans a chance to get great seats and we want to
control scalping the best that we can.


Skippy: Why can only people from the USA and Canada join the Official
Rolling Stones Fan Club?

Answer: We put the Official Rolling Stones Fan Club in a short amount of
time. There were logistical problems with overseas issues. We've done a lot
in a short amount of time.


Skippy: Why do people have to pay a fee to get tickets?

Answer: It's not just a fee to get tickets. There are great costs to running
the Official Rolling Stones Fan Club. We may look like a ticket agency now
but we have much more planned. Everything cost money that we do and will do.
We are not opening the Official Rolling Stones Fan Club up to only people
who pay to join the Fan Club. Everyone is welcome.


Skippy: What else does the Official Rolling Stones Fan Club have planned?

Answer: I'm can't tell it all now since that would take away from the
presentation but there will be much.


Skippy: OK, I can understand that. Would you tell a little, in general
what's planned?

Answer: The fans will get updates constantly of what is going on with the
band. There will be ever-changing video shot everyday that will appear
on-line. It will be a view to the Rolling Stones like having a back stage
pass and better. There will be up close and personal video of the band in
private moments on their days off too! There will also be constant written
reports. This is some great ground-breaking fan club stuff that no band has
ever done.

Youre not the only one..mind you,I guess telling him to stick his journal up his ass for failing to respond didnt help matters....

What a crappy anonymous bunch of side stepping and non-answers that interview is.

LOL,
I'm glad you said it. I don't even believe it was an interview. And if so with who? A customer service Rep?
He has absolutely no credibility with me.

Gazza I have my doubts as to the validity of the interview myself

Strikes me as at the very best a pre-arranged agreement between a few people (anonymous at that!) dressed up as some kind of explanation/ justification for all the fuck ups and complaints. Not too many probing questions were there? Any "answer" is just taken at face value and then they move on to the next "question" regardless of how evasive the reply was! Awful...
