You know Frazier if you had any idea that Joe thinks guys like Bill S are his friends and family then I don't believe you would insult him or any of his fans.
They're all his friends & family? God i had no idea, i'd better not have an opinion opposing theirs then either because it's clear that common sense is in the minority here. Let me know when Joe next invites you all for dinner at his house, or when he lets you hold one of his '59 LP's, or texts you to see what your weekend plans are. Friends? Gosh how lovely
I'm quite willing to take all your insults and abuse if it means i get to say what i want to say and do so without resorting to personal name calling myself. I wasn't derogatory, i didn't get personal or needlessly vindictive, and merely questioned the intent of the poster.
As for the person who tried to draw a parallel between this post and me having posted videos of my playing for attention from Joe, look back through my previous posts/topics on my profile (there isn't many) and you'll see that any time i have posted a video (and i only did so a couple of times when i first joined the forum, and haven't since), it's been with the direct purpose of getting advice & feedback from the other members, (for example, my first attempt at Jazz, and advice on becoming a session musician), i've never posted with the approach of 'hey, here's a vid of me playing check it out'. So, in actuality, your statement doesn't apply to me, and all you've done is indirectly insult players like Stefan.
Seeing as i'll probably come under a lot of fire for this post, i'll make sure i mention the fact that i wouldn't be here if i wasn't a massive fan of Joe, and that i listen to his music nearly every day, buy his albums, and attend the shows (without filming them). I'm not here to 'troll', ruffle feathers, or just plain disagree with people for the sake of it, i see things that i don't like now and again, and i point them out directly, without being an insincere smart-arse about it. I don't post on this forum all the time like some of you here, i only post when i feel i actually have something to say.
But yeah, i've decided to play the martyr card now. Bring on the heat
Also, if you're going to flame me, get my @#$%^^&# name right please
