Thanks for getting back to me. No worries and I wish you the best in the Cleveland music scene! It's funny because only in Cleveland do people pass up a pop project lol. Im in LA right now and I have multi million dollar film producers/directors doing a music video for me all for free bc that's how much they believe in my music. I've also had Lady Gaga's producer invest about $300,000.00 into my brothers and I in the last 3 years haha. I know money doesn't mean anything to people in Cleveland but it sure says a lot when some stranger I barely know is investing their own money from their pocket into my project. Almost every guy I've contacted about playing with me IN CLEVELAND has passed it up bc it's "not their scene". Who do you Cleveland musicians think u are? Slash? Haha.. It's just funny to me. I lived out in LA for 6 years and I am from Cleveland and it's amazing to me the attitudes and cockiness that Cleveland musicians have when it comes to "their genre". Cleveland needs to get over themselves and realize there is a million other markets out there. You guys think you are so open minded and "cool" But you guys are the most close minded fools I've ever met. It doesn't make you "cooler" bc you will only play metal and hard rock. It makes you stuck in Cleveland forever ending up playing at your local bar until your about 55 years old. But hey, whatever floats your boat:) It's harder to write a pop song then it is to write a metal song. U feel me? Im in LA right now and I think I may stay here forever bc I cannot stand the Cleveland music scene with all their rebellious "stand up for Cleveland music scene. Rock on" bullshit. Haha. Thanks anyways and take care
You too Matt Augusta... I've never even met you before but from your texts I can tell you are the most cocky dude in Cleveland -have fun playing the worst songs ever- Take care - oh - and thanks for referring me to another Cleveland rocker haha
