    Oh please. What is he some fucking untouchable deity who canít be judged?

    If he had even a shred of integrity left he would close that stupid donation page down. Heís made $30,000 more than he asked for. Yeah Iím going to judge him because he deserves to be. All he is doing now is taking advantage of peopleís generosity.

    The guy asked for money so he can sit on his ass and play guitar all day. Thatís really nice. What if I told you I donít wanna work anymore, Iím just going to set up a gofundme page and ask you guys to give me money to pay my mortgage, all my other bills, and feed my family. And you know what Iíll do? Iíll sit and play guitar. How would you feel about that?

    I was out of work for three months (during Christmas no less) not long ago, did you guys even know about it? No. I figured out how to make it through and it wasnít pretty, but we did.

    I donít like anything about his music, but that has nothing to do with my comments about him. Itís just noise and yelling to me, but again thatís just irrelevant.

    And again he might be a super nice guy, but he comes off really douchey with all this donation crap. Itís just a bad look to me.

    Yeah, i'm not feeling the voice.

    I was impressed with his shredding, though, but that's the "Guitar kid" in me.

    Doesn't his wife work?

    I know my GF said: we are partners, so we'll figure something out if you get stuck.
    She still has a really good job, just working from home.

    No wonder you couldn't sleep.

    I still haven't been the same "me" since last June.
    For some reason, mentally, i just got stuck in this "dark night of the soul."
    Once i got a taste of it, it kinda stays with you, but i guess that's life.

    Maybe i should fire up a Fundme page, for emotional distress!

    Are you pleased to be back, or is it just temporary.

    My boss, well my bossí boss is the reason I got the job there in the first place. Now Iím working on his team. Whatís funny is I used to be his boss years ago. So yes Iím happy to be back because I liked the company, I just didnít like that job. And I had a horrible inept manager. I have to be careful because my friend is a director and I need to remember how I talk to him in front everyone else, when I can just say ďfuck youĒ to him anytime I want offline so to speak. Weíre close friends.

    He doesnít seem to mind though if everyone knows we are friends because he has my guitar hanging behind him on the wall, and when we were in our zone webex conference call in front of 100 people, he said ďHey Brett hereís your guitar.Ē We traded acoustics years ago.

    He got me to come back. I didnít want to come back. But he assured me it would be better. So far it has been.

    He has that sort of "phantom of the opera"/Broadway, aspect to his voice.

    It doesn't really sound rock & roll, but more showy.
