I take exception with the statement that he isn't a bad musician "per-se". I think he's a talentless asshat and a fake musician.
Weirdly, that's not atypical but I guess you notice it less and are more forgiving when the musicians are decent enough to excuse it. Tom always looks like he's trying to pass a turd with a knot in it...How do you rate his exaggerated facial expressions and flailing around like an exceptional individual?
In the same way a "writer" can know a lot of nouns and synonyms and adjectives, spell them all correctly and still have no idea how to use them properly, I guess is where I was going...I take exception with the statement that he isn't a bad musician "per-se". I think he's a talentless asshat and a fake musician.
I wouldn't even call him a musician, I would compare him to a 12-year-old shoving a saxophone in his anus and farting out sounds.100% this. Tom isn’t necessarily a bad musician, it’s just clear that he doesn’t understand what makes music appealing. Ever watch a sporting event, boxing is most guilty of this, and the person tasked to sing a simple song like the national anthem completes butchers it by over embellishing and flourishing? That’s Tooter. There is beauty in simplicity, and in music, less is often way more. Given how big of a simpleton the subject matter is, you’d think he’d actually be able to play the recorder, an instrument taught in elementary schools to children who are 8-years old, skillfully.
Kind of depressing if you take the fact that music is this dude’s only outlet, and he can’t even take it seriously.
Tom can only afford well used training instruments and not quality equipment.
