Open letter war between Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) and Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance)
It seems the love between Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) and Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance) is definitely over. Murphy posted an open letter to Brendan Perry on his Facebook page slamming him for his "pretentious musical tourism" and threatening to "take no hesitation in suing your bad ass". The open letter is an answer to earlier statements by Perry. The Dead Can Dance songwriter had commented the collapse of a planned joint 100-date world tour last year saying:

    "The truth of the matter is that PM [Peter Murphy] wasted months of my time, energy and effort. It was he, after all, who invited me to tour with him and then reneged on our agreement not once, not twice but three times... can you imagine my frustration? ... I would not have minded so much if he had shown some remorse by way of an apology, this would have been the very least I could expect from such an honorable and 'spiritual' man. Right? Well wrong... When I last wrote to him to enquire how he was and what the problem was, he basically told me to mind my own business... Cuckoo!"

Perry also said: "The guy has too many albeit mysterious health issues to deal with and, to be honest, he's a sandwich short of a picnic."

But Murphy now retaliates saying that he mistook Perry for a better person suggesting Perry should "write angry depressive 'Goth' songs that would be a good big market for you." And things get serious when Murphy adds: "if I find any serious libel in print up there on the web, I tell you, and from the real Irish fucker that I can be, I will take no hesitation in suing your bad ass."

Perry announced the joint trek last fall, reporting it would start in March in South America via Mexico to North America and then on to Europe. Murphy never announced touring plans himself, and apparently was suffering from an undisclosed health issue earlier this year, which forced him to cancel a planned February webcast. You can read Murphy's reply to Perry's accusations below.
