Still miss you Gene
Your song lives on.
Miss you dad :'(
Sad and sweet memories, Gene Eric Mann's last song.

My idea for the song was, what if life was a bar, and all 7.5 billion earthlings were group into just a handful of characters that could fit into a bar – what is everyone doing? What are they thinking?
So utterly shocked and saddened by his passing. True feeling of loss for my brother in music.
R.I.P love always
Gene Eric, thank you deeply for your most kind comment on my song Psychomantium...personally I can't hear the vocals on that song very well, as I am a Gulf War veteran with only about 15% hearing...I want to remix it. Thank you, I hope you'll friend me on facebook.
I find myself wishing I'd been listening more closely when you were with us; as closely as you were listening to us.
I feel like you're still listening now.
Many thanks x
Nice one like it
This might be one of my favorite *Gene Eric Man* songs.
sand castle kings..great
Imaginative chord progressions. Sad you're gone.
This was the first of Gene's (Ricky) songs I remember listening to. That was back on *EZFolk.com*
This is the first of Gene's songs I remember listening to. That was 10 to 12 years ago on *EZFolk.com*.
Travel well Gene.
You will be missed around here.
Thanks for everything.
God speed my friend, you will be missed greatly.
What's happened to Gene??? Oh no.......
Really sad to see you leave like this. May you shine bright from above and keep the Angels doped with your music. RIP brother.
I dig your handle of the keys and your vocal delivery – ROCK ON!
Someone ought to do something with this -- it's good stuff!
Reminds me of a few early John and Paul collaborations -- a bit of psychedelic seasoning, an intriguing flow, a bridge that's like a whole other song. Brilliant! Great job!
Good stuff -- I dig your style, composition-wise and performance-wise.
"Just like a monkey up in the tree
Throwing your feces straight at me" -- definitely my favorite lines in this number! Such a beautiful song, so gorgeous, and the lyrics are so powerful!
Playing it again. This is one for the headphones! Love that lead guitar moving from ear to ear -- good fun!
I found this to be delightfully entertaining in either directions, but it really was particularly pleasant and delicious in reverse.
I'm downloading it and running it through my studio software because something about it makes me want to hear it backwards. Enchanting and intriguing, pricking the brain.
I hear the Paul influence, but not so much the song you mentioned as "Black Bird Fly," which I like! ;)
I dig how y'all blended, mixed down and mastered the vocal tracks -- fabulous job!
A wee bit of Hawaiian spice sprinkled upon this one -- tasty. Y'all blend superbly, vocally. Loving that Youngbloods-like guitar effect. Beautiful!
Y'all did an amazing, fabulous, exceptional job with this number. Excellent! ROCK ON!
Reminds me of some Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd -- back when the were The Pink Floyd and released not LPs but rather 45s like See Emily Play. Very groovy, cool, far out sounds. Thanks for reflecting this juicy era of music!
Dig that guitar! Nice effect, sweet picking. Groovy, colorful sounds all around.
Another number that reminds me of The Outsiders and The Youngbloods and other bands and songs of the Psychedelic '60s and the reign of the hippies over the music industry in that era. Solid GOLD, man!
Things that go together: lava lamp, tie-dyed shirt, incense smoke, headphones, and music by The Proods!
The folks under 40 between 1964 and 1970 would have ate this song up! A brilliant composition and a delicious production!
Only the 2nd time in my 54 years on the planet that I've heard a song sung from the perspective of one who died in a car crash, so while I can't say it hasn't been done before, it's still rather rare. What I can say is that this one is by far the superior of the two. Great job -- lyrically, vocally, and musically!
I’m on AloneTone as Gene Eric Mann (generic man), Justin Otter Guy (just another guy), Merry Bear, and Nightmoth. I really appreciate that you listened to ALL my Nightmoth recordings – those old children songs are particular horrid numbers, recorded before I knew much about what I was doing. Anyway, I’m here to return as much of the time and ear you lent to me as I can and play your 13 gems.
I already dig “Breakfast” and “Boyfriend” so I’m sure I’ll get a kick from the rest. Your style turns me on and tickles my fancy. Thanks for the listen and always, always, ROCK ON!
