Hi Listmates,

Was really shocked to read the critizue given by "Tamas Blues" of Joey Morant on June 9th.

I don't know nor have ever heard Joey Morant play, but I do know that some things are better left unsaid, especially when they are not nice.  What "Tamas Blues" did was definitely a breach of good manners.  He blasted Morant, criticized his playing and his musicianship and called him "awful"  Now, nobody says that someone has to love a musician's playing, but "Tamas Blues" gave an opinion quite publicly that could deter and influence other possible listeners, and could cost Morant some gainful employment.  That's a pretty nasty thing to do.

Shame on "Tamas Blues".  I don't know him, either, but something tells me I don't want to have him crtique my own playing.
