Damon Albarn has long been considered a musical mastermind, what with his work with Blur, Gorillaz, and a myriad of other projects. After reportedly walking out on Blur's latest recording session, though, he might just have earned a reputation as a bit of an a-hole.
William Orbit, who's producing Blur's new, long-awaited record, tweeted recently that "Blur could have been good. But Damon, brilliant and talented tho he is, is kinda a shit to the rest of Blur." When asked about that by NME, Orbit said that Albarn had just up and halted the band's recording sessions three weeks ago: "The new stuff sounded amazing. Then it all stopped suddenly. It was all over with Damon, and the rest of the band were like, 'Is this it?'"
