Wince!  not that he didn't deserve it.

I might add that I've noticed this weird sort of attitude
from DJs towards players and composers many times.  

I believe it's because they are subsconsciously aware that 
they depend on us for their material whereas we create our
own material.

There's also the aspect that as a DJ you can't really create
intellectual property (like, get songwriting royalties) so
it makes it hard to release CDs and make money that way.
You have to keep working, spinning -- like a shark, if you
stop moving, you sink to the bottom and die...
