I didn’t bother reporting this the other day out of laziness and partially because it sounded like bullshit, but reports that Iron Maiden’s most recent tour of South America was organized around analytics developed from BitTorrent and social media data are wrong.
A representative for Musicmetric, an entertainment forecasting startup that analyzes BitTorrent and social media data in its work, has refuted the report, which was printed by some tech blog last week, Blabbermouth claims.
If its bullshit, why link to it, am I right?
Musicmetric’s head of public relations, a chap named Andrew Teacher, issued a statement saying that the company never worked directly with Iron Maiden and that the article is “sadly not substantiated.”
Another statement from the firm says “We never stated or implied that Iron Maiden had used our analytics to plan its tours.”
In other news, Iron Maiden’s member must not have tasted that fucking beer they’ve loaned their name to before actually giving the brewmasters the green light.
That shit tastes like Eddie’s piss. I just had my first bottle of the stuff last night, with a clean palette, and it’s awful.
