I took that more as a statement that he didn't want to deal with the comments an AP.net news post would get, and after seeing how people around here reacted to Kelly's article about women on Warped Tour, I don't blame him. The comments for that thing made me lose faith in humanity a little bit.
If that's what he meant then fine but that's not how I read it. I don't see how you can't read as him stating he is "shackled" and therefore can't do what he wants to which is post this on AP and it is directly a result of that interview. I don't want to quote the whole blog but:
"It leaves me in a place where I feel as though I can’t speak my mind about this band without the internet assuming I have a vendetta. Frankly that pisses me off. That interview paints me in such a corner that if I write any thoughts at all about a band (especially this one), their music, or the character of the band members — I will immediately have what I say dismissed by some as biased. And that’s bullshit."
He's right that it is bullshit but then doing what they want in order to avoid "chaos" is self censorship and I can't go for that.
