    He disappears every now and then. I asked the same question a couple of years back and he came around for a while.

      He got bent out of shape because Cakewalk posted an article in their blog about The Duke Western, who does cues for TV shows using SONAR. The headline for the article mentioned his doing cues for Duck Dynasty. Cakewalk is owned by Gibson, as is Harmony Central. He felt this constituted an endorsement of Duck Dynasty by Cakewalk/Gibson, and he objected to that. So he left in protest. I think that's a pretty accurate summary.

      If only I could figure out something to post that would offend spammers so much that THEY would leave...

        Being offended is a sign of weakness.

            Leave $4 million in cash (small bills) in a brief case at a Namm location of my choosing and I promise you I will solve all the spam problems around here. And if it doesn't work, I promise I'll come back and work the problem again for half price.

              Do you realize how many briefcases $4 mill in small bills would require? Obviously you don't want to do this on the down low.

              I think it would be helpful to all concerned with maintaining their political and cultural integrity, for SSS to disclose other Gibson/Cakewalk/Sonar client associations with potentially offensive celebrities- who at the very least, should not be promoted in blog headlines.

              I very much doubt B2B or anyone else misses me, but let me say this: He did a great job moderating the songwriter forum. I also liked his music- although somewhat rudimentary and repetitive, those qualities fit his genre and his vocals were "character" without being affected. Too deaf to make out his lyrics but I assume they didn't include glowing references to Duck Dynasty (disclosure: one of my friends now works for that organization, he's the closest thing I know to a rock star- with the exception of local entertainers Inky the Clown and Bingo, both of whom I have opened for on numerous occasions).

                technically he knew a thing or two..pretty impressive musical acumen about past and present artists...

                but he was a clueless whitebread going into realms of music where he had no 'bizness'

                and yes, his vox sounded 'affected' as well as 'afflicted'.

                the guy was whiter than rice, Casper the Friendly Ghost, and processed cane sugar,
                yet he tried to sing 'southern' and bluesy' and became a parody of a parody...

                an apt musical Sobriquet For him could have been 'Blind Blue Clueless Mensch'

                His own recordings?

                He had a limited vocal range, no sense of dynamics, no phrasing skills...he just was...'Sucky'...... is that a word?

                I think he was a good person at heart...took his aging mom out to tea and the opera and such...and put it in writing, here..on HC....always a treat.......(yawn.)

                  He must have meant a lot to you since you started a thread about him and have written so much about him in this thread.

                      Craig, this seems like a good opportunity to revisit the subject of ad hominem, which I seem to recall you speaking out against in the past.

                      As you know, I've been a fan of your writing for about forty years now. Your work is always informative and often thought provoking. I'm also a fan of you as a human being: your kindness and positive spirit shine through in everything you do.

                      Because of these traits, I've enjoyed posting in your forums for roughly 20 years now; and while I haven't posted much here lately, I have no intention of stopping for good.

                      That said, life has been both busy and stressful for me for awhile now; and I find myself posting these days mostly on just one forum—one where there is zero tolerance of personal attacks. The last thing I need these days is for my online experiences to add stress to my life. That forum virtually guarantees a good experience, offering both engaging discussion and a respite from the trying aspects of life. SSS would be the same if not for that one difference.

                      Now I'm not suggesting you change your forum policies for me; but perhaps I'm not the only one who feels this way, so I'm offering this post as food for thought.

                      Best,

                      Geoff

                        Sounds like everyone lamenting Blue to Blue as dead. He posts some increasingly loopy things over at gs and then deletes a lot of them. But then, hey, so do I. My point? I don't have one. I'm just sittin around the stove in my overalls, reminiscing with the rest of the geezers.

                        I hope all you guys soon post in your profile whether you eat fish. My hope had been that Harmony Central would require this by now. I hate fish. Won't touch it. Never have. Zero tolerance. And I prefer to visit forums where I'm pretty sure no one eats fish or knows others who do. Life is too short.

                        Anyway, my condolences re b2b. He was probably a great guy who had useful information for many dozens of youngsters around the net. In fact, maybe I'll go to gs and ask him how great he was when he was alive.

                        Hey, isn't this the part where in a few days, the deceased returns, re-registers, and is welcomed back by all?

                          I am in touch with B2B. He's a great guy, and I value his friendship.

                          I, like Geoff, do not value the continued personal attacks on him. I would say this even if life weren't stressful.

                          But also like Geoff, life is stressful and painful quite often (and also fantastic and inspirational, but it's been a lot of stress and pain lately), and I hope not to see argument ad hominem attacks.

                          Particularly ones that form the basis of a thread.
