    Was just talking about this old thread with someone and thought I'd ressurect it for ya'll to enjoy. There's so many new people here since it was originally posted.


    I have a couple of ads up on the internet saying "bassist available for paying or signed situation only". Just got this email (hope the curses get ***ed). I copied it just as it were written.


    F*** U *******

    who the f*** do you think U are - you are just a low-life
    bassist - the easiest instrument to play - 4 f***ing strings and you have an attitude

    it is just cause no one wants to play the bass - that is why there is a shortage of you f***s

    try learning a real instrument like guitar or drums, you dickweed loser

    paying situations only - f*** U

    let me tell U, we are on the verge of hitting it big and U would never be called on with an attitude like yours, loser

    keep playing those $50 gigs, we are going for the big time

    ******* BASSIST - 4 strings, wow!!!!!!

    I can learn bass in 6 months, it took me 20 years to be an accomplished drummer and songwriter

    Rick from TELL - remember the name TELL.

    Guess I gotta start playing drums.

    sounds like a total loser with plenty of time and lack of musical (and any) talent.

    hope it didn´t get you any sad or something...(i would be actually very mad)...

    BTW: did you reply it?...

    Well, Joe, I'm glad you didn't post the name of this poor, ignorant, etc, fool.
    He'd be hung in the nearest bush -- at least drowned in poisonous e-mail.....
    Poor soul:(

    What else can you do than laugh at it? Morons like these have to act more serious and at least use two brain cells to upset me. Don't take it to you, Joe - the author's an idiot, no more.
    Besides, we all know what kind of crappy bands get signed these days.

    He did not complete the sentence

    it should be... we are on the verge of hitting it big and have been for the last 20 years.

    As Oyster said dont let it upset you.

    Ho hum....Tell ? If anyone likes this name for your band go ahead and take it because 2 months or 2 years from now these guys will have split up and playing cover gigs at the local 60 seat bar on Saturday nights. Hey wait...I do that..it's not so bad!!!
  10. hey give the guy a break. if it took me 20 years to be an "accomplished drummer and songwriter"
    and still played in my moms basement i would be kind of bitter and pissed also.:D

    He is just pissed of that it takes him 6 strings to do what most of us can with 4.( no offense JT) Where and who is this mental midget? I wanna know cuz if he turns up in any ER within a 100 mile radius I can arrange special VIP treatment. Couple battery acid enemas, maybe theraputic castration so this clown cant infect the world with offspring.

    Just a thought.

  14. EXACTLY what I was thinking!! :D
  15. ouch!

    doctor mike,

    that doesn't paint a pretty thought!

    This is a very embittered and angry young man. Plus, he has time to send e-mails to complete strangers, bragging about his (near) accomplishments while belittling the ambitions of others.

    Why is he so angry about the "Paying" part of the ad? Could it be that Tell deserately needs a bass player, but can't afford to pay one?

    Too bad he chose to "show and Tell" you how rude and egotistical he is. What a jerk!

    I'm starting to think I want to write back to this guy. I was just going to ignore him but you guys are giving me such great stuff.

    So far I think I'm gonna go with Gruffpuppy or Jason's reply.
    All ideas welcome?

    I don't get The Fix references?

    Some guy called Zander decided to tell us how great his band was, and how we lacked their image.

    One thing I've got to say is, William Tell up there criticises your attitude while calling you an *******, without reason. You should find out where they're playing, go down, introduce yourself, and see what he has to say then. (I'm not advocating violence or anything like that, but I would love to see his face if that did happen...)
