And actually folks that is a blunt as I can make it without naming names. Many musicians and fans ALWAYS come to me to complain about who did what to them, the lack of respect of them , the lack of gigs for them, the absence of people at the gig, why we don't see certain artists come to town, seeing the same old faces playing around, no music in a certain part of town, etc, etc, and double etc.
Aren't you surprised I haven't lost my mind after all these years?
Well...I listen patiently, take mental notes and take things in advisement. I also do ALL I CAN to help promote OUR music scene. I cover events, write articles, consult, play the music and support the artists whenever I can. I do the best I can . I can't worry about who says what about me or if they don't acknowledge me in public. I don't have time for games and this is no joke business. ( We have fun, but it's no joke. A lot of sharks in the waters.) I'm at war every day.

Do your thing and don't worry about those lame suckers. You positivity will ALWAYS shine through.
What goes around...comes around. God don't like ugly.
PS...obviously someone out there got angry and told me something in case you are wondering.
