Bobby Conn and the press/////
Bobby Conn is known for his elaborate and fabricated press releases, and for making outrageous statements in interviews.
The following excerpt is from Bobby Conn’s Southern Records biography:
“”He developed the “Continuous Ca$h Flow System” while incarcerated in a federal facility in Maryland, serving out a sentence for mail fraud. In his solitude he was struck by two things: firstly, that his illegal difficulties were due to his focus on earning rather than spending as much money as possible, and more importantly, that he was likely to be the Anti-Christ. Bobby now knew that time was short, the coming Armageddon would destroy humanity at century’s end, so he had to reach people quickly. A natural performer and gifted musician in the popular tradition, he structured his “Continuous Ca$h Flow System”[…]Bobby knows that creating a financial vacuum inside oneself is the best way to fill a spiritual void, and he demonstrates this regularly by distributing thousands of dollars in the form of $20 bills to every audience member. But with his gift comes a desire. A desire to spend. And spend. And spend yet more, creating a glorious Debt that promises, if not salvation, a thrilling high-paced life-style. And when the collective Debt of our generation grows large enough, the entire Pig System of Oppression will be snuffed out like a candle in a hurricane.””
In more recent years, Conn has been more candid in interviews, and has admitted that all of these early fabrications for the press were merely a charade. Conn told Magnetmagazine that “I always thought it was part of the creative process. Creativity is lying. My own story doesn’t seem very interesting to me… You don’t want to be who you are onstage everyday. What’s the point in that?” Conn also said in another interview that the source of his onstage persona was “egomaniacal delusions that I’ve had since I was a kid - I tried to hyperbolize them to see how far it would go. To me when I came up with the whole idea of trying to promote myself as a potential Antichrist I figured that no-one is going to take this seriously or even acknowledge it because it’s about the dumbest thing you could say.”
