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.
So gorgeous is the music, so touching are the lyrics, so sweet and friendly and inviting are the vocals. This number touches and reaches in and beyond. Moving. lifting, comforting as it wraps about and flows through.
Gene Eric Mann, aka Justin Otter Guy, aka Merry Bear, aka Nightmoth. Yeah, I'm terminal, and my doctor's latest prediction is that I have but a week or so left. But thanks for being interested and asking. Keep me alive, in a sense, but playing one of my recordings from time to time.
As I stated below as Justin, this song, for me, is hypnotic, meditative, and soothing. It's good for the soul, with healing properties. I like the space it puts me in -- it's melancholia but also relaxing, chilled. Lonely but peaceful.
Came by for another cup of melancholia.
I thought I had commented on this the first time I gave it my ear. Oh well -- I came back for a second helping, so let that be my comment!
That's a driven sound, and that in-reverse guitar is hott! Fried to a tasty crisp! A fabulous composition and performance, Cool vocals. Great job -- ROCK ON!
It has -- for me -- a sweet, gentle, John Denver-feel.
I sure dig the flavor of this one! The chords, scale, melody, vocals, effects -- it all suits my fancy but for the brevity. I could of used at least another 3 minutes of this.
What fabulous poetry! Perfect music. EXCELLENT COLLABORATION, AGAIN, y'all -- What a team! The vocals are lovely and sweet.
Awesome! A great flavor to this scale -- spicy! Love the way you whip it out and wave it about. ROCK ON!
You have a nice voice. Cool poetry. Pleasant strumming technique.
New Wave music: "...music with a twitchy, agitated feel, choppy rhythm guitars and fast tempos...incorporating electronic/experimental music, mod, disco and pop." ~ Wikipedia
You definitely got the choppy guitar, the electronic, and the pop. But I didn't feel at all "agitated." It was a feel-good rhythm. Started my morning off right!
What a fabulous collaboration, y'all! Interesting lyrics -- they make one ponder -- and very appropriate music, saturated in melancholy.
:D Rock on, James!
Groovy, slick, and smooth!
Oh yeah! I sooo dig your style. You've got great compositional tastes.
Happening bass and wah-wahing guitar -- always a great way to spend the afternoon.
I dig this, and relate -- each of my guitars are convinced I love them more than the others.
These lyrics are brilliant! Great vocal delivery, making the lyrics real. Good music and an excellent mix down and mastering job. Liking the tone of the lead picking.
Groovy -- Rock on!
