I like STeVE's old avatard better. It just isn't the same without the maternal influence. It's like seeing a Paul McCartney album without the Parlophone label. I hate change. I wish everything was like when I was a child.

He's complaining because of two things:
- it draws more attention towards the old thread. There's drama...
- it serves the fiction that he's just a regular guy on the forum, which is supposed to be entirely moderated by gorts, while he intervenes behind the scenes and has actually used his admin privileges for bad purposes, just like the time a few years ago when he secretly edited Jamie Tate's messages to make it look like Tate had insulted him, to provide him with a motive to ban Tate.
Without reopening we wouldn’t have gotten M I C H A E L ‘ s opinion:
George should piss you off...his crapping on the band that fed him all those millions is down right disgusting...it's even worse in the Directors Cut Bootleg release...he is a whiny character indeed. made me lose some respect for him...just a rat thing to do...without the Beatles he'd be baking cookies...or playing in bars...I still LOVE HIM! ; )
Let me just say that I met George in the late 1980's twice. Each time he was very nice and answered all of our questions. He was the one who told me that it was John and Paul playing on "And Your Bird Can Sing" after I told him I loved that solo. He must have seen how embarrassed I was and tried to "comfort" me! He was nothing but nice when he didn't have to be. Of course, the cameras were not on him either so he didn't have that "tension".
I love and miss the guy....
There is a 100% chance STeVE contradicted this at some point, since you know, he is full of shit.
When searching to see if STeVe contradicts himself I found a little gem buried in a story: a mention of the room where STeVE would shoot his pressers for CNN and Fox. WTF??? When the fuck did Steve Hoffman ever appear for press on a cable news channel?
Sometimes the simple things in life mean a lot.
Kevin Gray and I were reminiscing today about the good old days at Future Disc Systems mastering house that has since closed up (owner Steve Hall and wife Laura are moving to Oregon). I did many DCC CD's and LP's there and Steve Hall and Gary Rice were MCA Recording Studio engineers who went out on their own to form the company back in 1986. I worked on most of the Ray Charles albums there plus "Love Is The Thing" LP and Gold CD by Nat "King" Cole and a ton of other stuff like Aqualung, Doors, etc... Great, fun place to do mastering. If you've followed my work in the press over the years, Steve Hall's room at Future Disc was where I always had my press photos and CNN and Fox news video segments shot; (great looking room). Steve always stopped work in there and let us come in and shoot. Once Ice-T and I had an hour long conversation in there about Nat Cole while the pictures were being taken, heh.
At any rate, when the Traveling Wilburys first album was being mastered at Future Disc, Laura was out front when some of the band came in for some "hands-on" mastering time with Steve.
Tom Petty comes in first (late, I guess and out of breath). He yells at Laura: "Where is the session?"
Laura points to the studio door. He walks in.
10 minutes later, Jeff Lynne walks in. He snaps at Laura (grumpy): "Where is the session?"
Laura points to the studio door. He walks right in.
15 minutes later George Harrison walks in. He walks right over to Laura, shakes her hand and says: "Hi, I'm George."
Laura stammers: "Y-Yes, I know. I'm Laura".
George smiles and says: "Laura, can you please show me where the Traveling Wilburys mastering session is?"
Laura gets up and walks him into the studio where he nicely thanks her.
That is something she said she would never forget as long as she lived; not the fact that she had met George (although that was nice) but that George was a true gentleman.
