You have no clue, dude. I don't take any money from any of the scene bands I help. I do what I do because I want bands to learn to sustain on their own and grow as artists. There are so many better...

I guess you don't care as much about this community as I thought.
Next time I am asked to be a part of YOUR website, I will...
