Fake Kurt Loder Facebook
Fake Kurt Loder Facebook
I was briefly taken in by the new Facebook page for Kurt Loder.
At first I thought it possible, but then after reading a few of the comments made by "Kurt Loder," I immediately realized it was either a joke or a mediocre pretender.
Others were apparently taken in too, like Roger Hughes, an old Army buddy from Munich who I'm sure Kurt would like to reestablish contact with or just say hello, and the women who went to OCHS with Kurt back in the Sixties.
But then reading the comments "Kurt Loder" posted, it was immediatly clear that whoever this character is, it isn't Kurt Loder, and must be somebody that not only doesn't work with him, or know him, but hasn't even read his stuff.
I tried to post a comment exposing this fraud, noting that the real Kurt Loder would never say any music is "cool," or "Kurt Loder Rules!" but they won't let me expose them on their own page, so I'll do it here.
Kurt would not ask people to "never forget" him, or ask anyone who loves him to say so or post it. And he would never ask anyone to promote him in any way.
And he certainly didn't "always enjoy interviewing musicians," but thought it was work, and tedious work at that. He didn't think that most of those he interviewed were doing anything "really groundbreaking and fascinating" or even interesting, and with only a few exceptions (ie. Keith Richards, Captain Beefheart).
Kurt Loder is an interesting person, a good guy, a smart guy, a neat acquaintance, fine friend, excellent writer and good guitarist.
But he didn't enjoy interviewing idiot celebrities, thought the most significant music went unhearld. He despised the direction that music video television went, and didn't follow it there.
Now he's writing good film reviews, and sometimes his reviews are better than the movies he's writing about.
But he's not on Facebook, and probably doesn't even know there's an idiot imposter posting junk under his good name.

Kurt, I remember reading your book on Tina Turner and borrowing it from my local library in my teen years... and growing up watching MTV watching you interview Madonna, Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor and soooo many artists/bands I listen to.
Being the music journalist you are... stay true to what you're doing because I'm ...sure it's working!
