    Hey! This is not a charade. We need emotional content.

    Playing like that requires effort.

    He did a beautiful version of Prelude in G Major, so I don't care about anything physical with him, it just doesn't matter. If how he looks or whatever bothers you, just listen to the music, you aren't being forced to look at him.
     
  4. Posing in ads dosent....i think he;s trying to show how super emotionally involved is...it just turns me off....:mad:

    He looks like he is about to give away the punch line.

    And your point is.....? John's a fantastic player (ever listen to his upright work?) whose emotions come through in a very honest way in his music. Who cares what he looks like in an ad? Sheesh.... sounds like your average teenybopper debate over here. Go play some music...

    It's just you. Get over it. You could have made a thousand similar posts about any number of poser rock musicians who look like they're getting an oak tree enema while playing, or how stupid they all look while jumping around on stage with their straps down to their knees even though they're only pounding roots on the B string, but you didn't. Why is that, I wonder? :rolleyes:

    You! :D :D
    It's not personal. It's like when Ed Fuqua call me "Woodchips". I look at it as tradition.

    Also, John has forgotten more than I'll EVER know. It have no problem with his alledged "posing". The man is a killer player, plain and simple. He's a helluva slapper too. I've seen him do it on a Yamaha proto Jazz type 5.

    Got me. Legend has it that he's some kind of Hungarian Mafia type who swore revenge on the world for the death of his family at the hand of an opposing faction. He walks in shadows, has no fear, and only two living people have ever seen his face. I'm not one of those people, but rumor has it he looks a lot like Kevin Spacey.

    Sounds like a potential Paul Rueubens vehicle if you ask me.
