    The guy tours & records, non stop, sometimes using just his car & no road crew, to
    save on expenses.

    That is a real hunger, a real addiction to being a musician & performing.
    You can't say he's a poser today, because the fans bailed, but he never quit.

    Meanwhile, Vito is out somewhere, mowing the lawn in New Jersey.
    Actually in Staten Island. He never left. He has his own construction company now. At least he and Tramp are now friends again and talk once
    a month. Never was a fan, but they were a local band and I’ve seen them more than I cared to.

    Nobody cries as well as Mike Tramp or Jack from LOST

    I do give credit to Mr Tramp for continuing to put out music, play, etc. However To paraphrase Ian Malcolm who helped save the world from dinosaurs, Record Executives were so preoccupied with whether they could make Mike Tramp an artist that spanned multiple decades, they didn't stop to think IF THEY SHOULD

    I have no doubt that Vito takes a lot of Pride in his construction company.

    Lol. You really are a dense little muppet, aren’t ya. Don’t know when to leave well enough alone. For a guy that routinely has a monster temper tantrum every 2 months and subsequently tucks tail and disappears for 2 months, you sure do have an obsession with a guy who’s supposedly irrelevant to you.

    “Holding court.” “Running the show.” You may have an exaggerated view of what this message board is to you lol.

    I love that the word ‘chica’ is a trigger for you though.

    I don't feel the need to pile on with the Trunk hate. I like him. In fact, the opening of the audio in the OP, has him saying that he is simply a fan...

    I like what he does and that he flies the flag. Does he have 'insider' knowledge? Who cares? He has a platform to support and promote music that I like(d) and keep some of the player's names and work in discussion.
