Re: Secret Identities

I quite like it when an act's stage presence or persona is irreducible to individual personalities - like Gorillaz, for instance. (A geeky aside: in ancient Latin the word 'persona' meant 'mask' - every persona is a mask, some just choose to mask that fact by trying to appear 'authentic'!) However, it irks me a bit when bands refuse to interact with their audience when on stage. I mean, you don't necessarily have to do the whole 'showmanship' thing and have a chat with the people who've come to see you but it smacks of pretension to just walk on and play as if they're not there.

I've always been fascinated by artists who refuse to show their identity.
Whether it be by a mask or by simply never presenting themselves in
physical form. Such as Burial, daft punk, banksy, and whoever else. Would
you be one of these kinds of artists if u could?
