I don’t think you should ever damage other people for your art.
A photo of me and my mate Nick Evans performing at the R.E.M. tribute night at the Rising Sun Arts Centre in Reading. I performed a solo rendition of Fall On Me along side a version of Nightswimming, which featured fellow Buildings on Fire band member Will Wallace on piano and a sweet melodica solo by my good self. We also played Imitation of Life and Man on the Moon as a five piece with Jerome Bell joining on bass guitar. https://www.facebook.com/BuildingsOnFire

How can anybody learn anything from an artwork when the piece of art only reflects the vanity of the artist and not reality?
