I love this band, I really do. Ladies and gentlemen, the first band in history to make a song longer than 6 and a half months long: Bull of Heaven. This band is just freaking amazing. Over 200 songs, most of which are 3 hours long. http://bullofheaven.com/

So John Cage doesn't count as a band? 

Ha, when I read your first "Bull of Heaven" post, I couldn't go to the actual site. (It was blocked on my school server. I know, visiting The Beatles Bible at school! Naughty me!) I thought you were joking when you said the songs ranged from half an hour to six weeks in length. 

Edit: I Googled it to find more about it, but all I could find was bulls in mythology. You should start a Wikipedia page on it.

I really wouldn't say it's my band exactly, I've worked with Neil and Clayton (the two members) on a lot of their songs.

I'm not their producer. Think of me as Andy White or something. I'm just a session man.

Well, I meant "In My Life" or "The Word" or "Money(That's What I Want)" or... well, you get the point.

Maybe this could be a better analogy.

MrBig:Bull of Heaven::Mal Evans:The Beatles.

Well, no. What I meant by work is that I go on their site a LOT and showed them (songs) to friends making the site more successful. Hope I cleared up any confusion.

And by Session Man, I mean I talk to the group a lot (Well, Clayton anyway) and I really haven't played on their songs. I might have though, I sent Clayton a guitar demo WAY WAY back and I never knew if he used it or not. Clayton and Neil deserve all credit.

Again. I didn't do ANYTHING with the songs. Neil and Clayton deserve every bit of credit they can get. I apologize to Neil and Clayton for this.

OK, yeah.

 

  You had nothing to do with our material, we never received a guitar demo, and we don't even accept "demos."  We don't make "songs," either.  Saying that you work with a band on their "songs" doesn't mean that you send people to their website.  That's a support position, and one, might I add, that you were never asked to fill.  Our contributors know not to discuss our music online for exactly this reason.  We have a public list of contributors, and that's enough credit.

 

  It's no badge of honor working with us, anyway, but I put in 15 hrs. a day on music, it's a thankless job, and I don't need some kid on Facebook assuming credit for something he had absolutely NOTHING to do with.  When you clearly misrepresent yourself as having some kind of official affiliation with us, or anything more than a casual acquaintance online, you are lying.

Yeah. I'm sorry Clayton. I did something I really shouldn't have and I'm really sorry for doing it. I hope I can still support Bull of Heaven in every way I can. I apologize to everyone. I don't know what I was thinking.

Apology accepted. 

 

I just spent three days uploading 75 Gigabytes that I now have to re-upload from scratch.  THREE WHOLE DAYS of my life.   I can't get those days back.  What did you do yesterday?  Eat a burrito?  Climb a tree?  Go swimming?  Talk to a girl?

Man, that sucks ass. 3 Whole fucking days? I'm sorry that I did this again. I don't think that forgiveness will even make me feel better after what I did (Not saying that you have to do more, saying that I myself should do more to receive this apology). And I'm not even competant enough to do those things. Can't eat burritos, never climbed a tree, I rarely go regular swimming, and girls hate me. If it means anything, you're about to see me do something that can hopefully show you how sorry I am. 

 

Joe, one of the rules of the forum is "Enjoy yourself." During my visit in The Beatles Bible, I have enjoyed Beatles Bible for the most part. But, till Yesterday I haven't. You are now obligated and forced to ban me. I'm serious. I think this is the only way to show that I'm dedicated to show Clayton how sorry I am. Please ban me.

Hey, don't worry about it so much. You wrote something without fully thinking it through. I think we've all done that at some point, but I guess if you want to clear the air with Clayton it might be best to do it away from here.

Draw a line under it and come back when you're ready to enjoy yourself again 🙂

Um... so let me get this straight. You joined a Beatles forum to do what? Oh, yeah, make three posts to send some poor soul who said something stupid on a guilt trip. Classy. Couldn't you just send him an e-mail kindly informing him he's getting too big for his britches? From what I understand, he used the wrong term, then hastened to clarify. It looks to me that he was just trying to help and that he's the one who deserves an apology.

Please be quiet. I know that you are "trying" to stick up for me, but Clayton deserves my apology and then some. I'm really sorry to anyone effected by this and Neil and Clayton.
