Oops! My bad!
Mistakenly Featured SlideMeister - February 2014
I've known Brendan for over fifteen years and have been totally impressed with his musical prowess since the first time I heard him play. This guy is a very unique "outside the box" type player who makes it sound so natural, the listener says: "What Box?" Its always a treat to hear what he does with whatever he happens to pull out of his pocket. (which is usually another surprise ;o)
This UK-based New Zealander once told me he was one of the most creative, skilled & versatile harmonica players in the world. While he may even be right, I told him: "But that kind of talk is supposed to come from "others" and not from you." (attach link to his email)
One of his lesser known (but equal to his musical skills) is joining a forum in order to promote himself, contrary to the rules he agreed to in order to gain entry. Over 80% of his posts are about HIM and what HE does, and contain an average of two or more links to his sites, where he is either saying "look what I can do" or trying to sell you something. In fifteen years, Brendan Power is SlideMeister's undisputed record holder for self promotion - no one has even come close. Any corrective action directed toward him are immediately met with his charges of "censorship" (which he posts on other "harp groups")
Also, once Mr. Power gains entry to the forum, he uses subterfuge in an attempt to change the rules and basically hijack the forum in order to market his stuff, while trying to "guilt trip the forum owner into letting him have his way "for the sake of the harmonica community." He feels, getting his stuff to the world is more important than any silly rules. Brendan's all about Brendan.
When he doesn't get his way, he does his best to slander the forum and its owner with his own private brand of venom, while his maintaining his personal victim-hood.
