U r an idiot. Funny,but still an idiot.?

+letsbm8s I took the bait and gave your song a listen …  well, frankly, it's atrocious and you're nothing short of delusional if you genuinely think otherwise. I don't normally leave comments if i don't have anything nice to say, but since you asked, my suggestion is to not quit your day job.?

Search "Vince Tofanicchio" on YouTube…looking for TV/Movie opportunities…feedback/comments welcome…David Foster inspired me when I was a kid?

I've known songwriters and independent musicians in my life who were well above average in their craft but remained unknown. Some great advice came from a road toughened musician: "Don't trust in every negative comment about your music but don't trust in the flattering positives either. Do what you love and stay connected."?

Yep, something younger people seem to know little about because they're trying to impress people with an image.

From what David said in a few other videos I've watched. Put it out where ever you can. Youtube is good, but shotgun the internet with it. Something could be embedded into a page someone else goes to. Not everything you find is going to be somewhere obvious, so don't put it in obvious places.

I'm an r&b SINGER. Not looking to spam, but looking to share real art with others. – I hate spamming, but I'll do what's needed to get good music out. Give me a thumbs up so others can see. – We need that "good ol days" feeling back to music. – Real, true, creative music can be found on my channel. SUBSCRIBE to take this journey with me. THANK YOU, from my heart!

What a dick Zane Lowe is – patronising f*cker, Gary Barlow was busting to stick the brow on him haha?

Fantastic interview, what a legend :)?

Awe-Inspiring…Thanks Lads.
?

He truly is an incredible guy, he's got more talent in his little finger than most other artists and it's an absolute honour to have grown up over the last 20 years listening to his music ?

Not a very good interviewer is he??

Barlow you are classic epitome of a average mediocre talent that think's it is imbued with great talent and originality, your not and never shall be. Your not even a 'has been' because you were in fact a never was.?

Interested in #songwriting – here's some pearls of wisdom from @GaryBarlow on this very subject via the BBC Masterclass sessions – http://ow.ly/BAyFF

Did you know? ACM has a brand new Contemporary Songwriting and Artist Development course starting in September 2015. ;)?

Show some respect Garry is an extremely talented man anyone that says otherwise is either ignorant or just jealous! ?

This is excellent. I have never heard of Take That. I have heard Robbie's solo stuff but nothing by TT.  Gary is brilliant. ?

Zane Lowe is a dick, but Gary is a great writer to be fair to him, I hate Take That, but Gary is a talented guy..?

Why does this guy have a scarf draped around his neck indoors?  It's not stylish, it just looks stupid.?

What a missed opportunity no tax dodging tips at all?

The Sarin gas is released at 41:51. Oh sorry, that's wishful thinking.?
