It was a random guess, but I admit I can't play, just was not gifted in that way. You confirm my suspicions; you are a self-aggrandizing journeyman musician, who grinds his teeth every night when people he perceives to be his inferior get all the glory. This is not confined to music, all of show business, and in fact every profession suffers the same unhappy personalities. I hope your journey through life becomes more peaceful.

You are certainly proud of yourself, someday maybe the clueless and ungrateful public will come to appreciate your genius. True I'm just a sports guy, 5-8 and white to boot, but I understand that I fit lower on the food chain than the Olympians and Major Leaguers. Without fans like myself, how would music gods like you get the acclaim they crave?

You are acting like you are Dweezil Zappa or something; very caught up in your own importance. If you are him, we have met- I gave you swimming lessons when you were three years old. Your dad was a pretty talented guy, but would tell you not to be so full of anger.

An America-bashing, Canadian punk who disses the country that made him rich. Whiny voice, sings through his nose, and certainly not an accomplished guitarist.
