I hate to think of the state of "your business" is when you stop a staff of allegedly 30, from doing, apparently, their JOB, to answer your quickie quizzes in your quest to one-up some stranger on the internet.
Matter of fact, since you've given such a wonderful demonstration of your instability here, I'm thinking that carrying on any rational dialog with you would be about as satisfying as working for you.
Most residents of Belmont shore are middle-aged. It doesn't matter what you think. Most who aren't ignorant about music in general, or blues in particular, would know who Leon Russell is.
Now, I'll let you go back to annoying the people whose job description apparently includes pacifying a loudmouth idiot. You must be hell on company Kareoke night.
Why do you care so much about Leon Russell? Who cares if people know who he is or not. You obviously are a loser and having nothing better to do then to take your anger out on the internet when people are just sharing their thoughts.

I'm old enough to know who Leon Russell is, but that doesn't mean I'd spend a load of time and money to go see him in a club. Plus, who wants to deal with the alcohol-fueled troublemakers roaming around on Avenida Pino?

And for the poster who goofed on Rudy Vallee, I would pay to see him at the Vault because the dude has been dead for 25-30 years and that would be a cool thing to see on stage.

Coming from the one who literally stopped his office during a work day for consultation on a question related to an obscure comments section on the internet, and who promised not to respond, then responded with a weak whine, I'd say if anyone needs professional help, it would be you, my poor pouting pinheaded friend.

I went to Ultra Music Festival in Miami and Craig Barkovsky was the head talent buyer for them and he booked rad artists. He booked the Cure, the Killers, Shiny Toy Guns, to name a few. His line up was sick.
Ha funny. This guy didn't book the Cure or the Killers. Look his name up he books bands for dive bars. I looked up the upcoming shows at the Vault and all I found was the Flock of Seaguls is a headline band an 80's night. What's up with that?

You are a moreon...are you serious right now? This is his wife and I hate to break it to you but I had to sit at home and listen to him on the phone for hours each day, and in all actuality have had to hear him broker deals on the phone with agents for the last 10 years, and it was with artists such as The Cure, Justin Timberlake, etc., etc., etc.

Tim Grobaty is the only journalist (if you'd call him that) who has trashed my husband in his articles. Not only that, but it was almost all articles that Tim had written referencing the "New Vault 350". Insider intel proved that Tim was only writing deragatory misleading and unfound statements because it was a shallow and unethical attempt to assist his long time friend squeeze my husband out of the Talent Buying position he worked hard to secure.

So let's get realistic here!!! If you would have done your homework and if you actually knew anyone of importance who is in the music industry you would know that my husband is and was a stand up guy in a shady industry full of back stabbing and deceitfulness. A lot of people will meet newbies in the industry who are naive and not only feed on them but also feed them a lot of b.s., promising opportunities of introduction to the whose who of the music industry

I have been a long time observer of all that comes to play in the music world and I must say...the only person I have ever met who knew the whose who of the music industry and who actually delivered when he ran across a new artist struggling to get an in was my husband.

So, just like all the other frauds who think they know something about something, I'll go ahead and put you on that list because you don't know what the f*$k you are talking about back when you posted this comment!!!

The Vault has an undecided opening date of never and I am sure you would be happy to hear that the economy has destroyed our hope for any semblance of a future and chance at the American Dream...we are both unemployed now and the music industry as a monetary source looks very grim. I guess it is true that the nice guy finishes last...and that's all my husband knows how to be...he's the nice guy who got taken advantage of from people like you who don't know what the f*$k they are talking about and should have and should now keep their negativity to themselves unless they've been there to witness every minute of someones career....get a grip. You are an asshole!!!

Not only that, Grobaty is really really fat, and he won't do anything about it. You should see him stuff his face. He's like the cookie monster-except instead of cookies, it's chicken-fried steak, potatoes and gravy, and ice cream sandwiches. And drinks with alcohol in them.
I'm telling you, this man is fat.

so does that mean no vault 360? I hope that's not so. I was looking forward to seeing Badfinger Unplugged.
