Hey!  Great!  You're very welcomed!  Send me your music and I'll definitely play it!

Hey, Cliff -- you're welcome.  I hope it can get cleared up.  I really would like to hear more of what you guys are doing.  I so relate to what you said about your mom helping guide you to that path.  She saw the gifts in you, maybe even before you ever realized you had them.  I feel the same about my mom.  I'm so grateful for the love of the arts she passed on to me.  She's gone now, but every painting, drawing, sewing or other creative things I do I feel her soft hand on my shoulder.  Be well, luv.  I hope you have a great productive week ahead x0x

Hey -- thanks for adding me to your friends list.  It's great to meet you here.  I'm so glad you guys are out there making incredible music and showing the kids how to rock.  Please do let me know if you ever make it out this way.  Be well and have a creative week x0x

Hey -- I've been having troubles playing tracks here on AP.  I clicked the play buttons and tried listening to your tracks but nothing happened.  I cleared out my cache and restarted my browser (and my computer) and still nothing.  I DID go over to ReverbNation, though, to see if I could hear your stuff there.  I really love Roaring Spirit -- great the perfect mingling of metal/hard rock and funk.  Great flow.  Made me want to pull out my old Powell skateboard and wind down a hill, but my old knees wouldn't be too happy with that! :o)  Great work, Cliff.  Keep it going.  I think you guys would have some kick-ass shows out here and turn-on a lot of new fans.  Hope you're having a great, productive week.  Take care and be well.

Hey, another Afro-Euro-Amerindian here.  Wonder if I saw you at DTH back in the day?  I used to rehearse there.  True that even in NYC, so many people are culturally ignorant.  Anyway, a big, "Hello!" from a fellow Sibelius and Stravinsky enthusiast.  (Actually, I was obsessed w/Mussoursky's operas as a teen - used to play piano and sing them off the Cyrillic manuscript while sporting combat boots and a Slayer tee!
