There's a good reason why I can't use my real name - it might put others in a difficult position.

George goes back with Dave a long way, so I respect his loyalty. I can see why he feels Dave's been unfairly vilified, because this bad feeling has as much to do with others as Dave. But the ball does lie at Dave's feet. It did then and it does now, so I'll urge him again to think laterally.

You may feel you're a misunderstood champion of lost music Dave, but the facts are clearly as expressed above and you do need to change tack.

George, as I say, I respect your defence of Dave, and I'm not immune to spelling and grammatical errors myself. But please read though what you write before posting, because we often haven't got a clue what you're trying to say. Yes there's a good bacon sarnie shop up in the Merrion Centre too, but it's not the same since they moved Scheerers and the musical aeroplane. What has that got to do with the price of fish?

And I really have no idea what your beef is with Duncan. We've all overrrun the occasional sound-check - often because the engineers are still getting their own act together. They're totally professional lads and if this has ever happened there will be a good reason. (Been on both sides of that coin many times).

George you say you stand for a love of music over money or contracts. But without money and contracts you'd have very little music to enjoy - because 90% of it would never have been created, and there'd have been precious few people around with enough skill to get it to your ears.

You've been around some pros in your time, so you know what they go through and what they deserve.

My advice - cut out the rhetorical questions and the metaphors and say with you think.

Then we can take your views on board. Who knows, you might even change our minds.
