First of all, I wasn't sure who had written this.  I just knew for a fact that none of our contributors would plug us on this website.  Second, I had an idea who it was, so I wrote him an email and asked him to clarify his remarks, and, after he had done so, I still felt as though some things hadn't been covered to my satisfaction.  Third, I wasn't looking to guilt trip him.  I just want for him – and everyone else – to know that when someone asks if you're in a band, and you say, "I really wouldn't say it's my band exactly," you're IMPLYING that it's your band, inexactly.  And when you go on to talk about how you've "helped" with "songs," these words carry a specific meaning in people's minds.

 

I'm not criticizing anyone for giving us a free plug.  To the contrary, I am delighted that some people care enough about our music to bother.  We're not assholes about letting people contribute to our project, either, but the automatic assumption on behalf of one of your administrators was to question whether the original poster was in the band, simply because he expressed an interest in such an outré venture.  The ensuing conversation wherein MrBig asserted a direct affiliation with the band when none existed is reason enough for me to say what I did.  In the future, however, I will be certain to use my personal email to communicate my displeasure with an already public discussion related to my work.

 

In brief, classy or not, stick it.

Yeah, people listen. I know this from experience: Don't fuck with Clayton Counts. He will win, EVERY TIME. Take this from me, I know best.

I'm sorry Marcelo, I don't know what you mean by that.


Me neither...

 

No, I mean, very depressing thread.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

I remember reading this thread and thinking 'and somewhere, paulsbass is smiling.'
Post one to post ten or so is quite a wild ride, from
Paul McCartney, to George Martin, to Billy Preston, to someone auditioning for Apple, and ultimately ending up as an Apple Scruff. How we love you.
I do miss Mr. Big though, I liked his posts, but I think it's pretty ironic that the word "bull" is in this thread.
