Apparently the only one you have respect for on this forum is yourself. Posting another version of a song you did is not competition but you took it that way. You bristle at the notion another can be as or more talented than yourself. Your reaction is no surprise, as is your veiled notion of disrespect covering your conceit. You have repeatedly denegrated other musicians and rarely can compliment another, previously suggesting the entire state of New Jersey full of only sub par musicians, to you. No one disputes your talent, but you don't get respect by putting others down and yourself above them. Frequent and lengthy posts all about yourself attest to this, as does your need to pick fights from the safety of a keyboard terminal with senior respected members here. Perhaps instead of alternate topics, you should create a forum named after yourself, with your real name and maybe photo and make it all about you. This is not a place to contribute to your ego and need for acclaim.
And the greatest thing about my friend, is that he was humble and kind and didn't act anything like you..
The older I get, the better I was..
