when i checked out my bands web site, i looked at the guest book, and saw this. just wanted to reply to ol' Ryan on a personal level, regarding the Benavente thread he posted. Just a word of advice sweety, b4 u go making judgement calls on something u know nothing about, you might want to research it b4 you open your mouth! by the way I listened to your band, and in my opionion, I couldn't stand it, but others may love it.... i dont know what this persons problem was, why they took this rout, or why they thought i was ryan. (it says the bass player is marty in the band page). so now ryan s feelings are also hurt. or why they needed to be so condescending what did this do that a PM or an e mail wouldnt? it is vandalism and was the wrong thing to do! and the person didnt even attach a name this was the action of a coward having a temper tantrum because they took something small i said (not even directed at anyone) personally. i said i thought that benavente basses looked like fodera ripp offs (not all of them) and this post was featuring an older benavente, so added that it seems as though benavente ripped off smiths before fodera. i believe this statement to be true. maybe insensitive, but the similarity was striking. anyway, wrong think to do whoever did it, and very cowardly way to deal with it. didnt solve anything, just inflamed the problem.
