    This from Lance:

    Freak advisory ALERT: The Infamous TOM ARGO has resurfaced. If anyone is getting email from a T-MAN from Lady Obscure magazine, he is NOT to be trusted with your music before a street date. Tom is a sick dude that is a compulsive liar and will will absolutely screw up your release. Just a warning for my musical friends out there.

    This guy needs his ass beat. He will shit on anyone and everyone without even thinking twice. I'd love to run into this assface at one of the Poughkeepsie shows where I know he does not live far from.

    Oh this from personal experience btw.

    I think maybe time has dulled the potential negative impact of Tom Argo's stupidity... I mean, everything seems to get leaked early these days anyway, heh.

    If you don't trust him, then don't send him your music. But I see no value in putting scarlet letter on him to destroy him. What's the point? Tom is a very good reviewer, and is very much in-tune with the progressive-power music world. In the past he was over-intense and caused a few issues (he even admits it), so I understand your angst....but he's realized his mistakes, and has changed a lot. Cut the guy some slack....he's trying to do well now. And Merry Christmas everyone. :)

    Based on previous posts, some bands / musicians / labels have had such negative experiences with him that branding him with a scarlet letter, so to speak, serves largely to try to warn others, so that they can make a more informed choice before choosing to engage with him. Also, while you are correct in describing him as over-intense, it went way beyond that... he flat-out lied, time and again, to a number of people... and also promised multiple times that he would never get involved with bands / labels again. He may be a fine dude in person or whatever, but even if he's changed, it seems highly unlikely that any musicians or labels will benefit from dealing with him.

    OVER INTENSE!!!! He is liar and a cheat, when you go around misrepresenting yourself to unsuspecting bands and Record labels, that Bobby is fraud. Caused few issues??? He has almost destroyed a number of bands because of his misrepresentation, and you say cut him a break, NO WAY. This person needs to be stopped, and he has not changed at all, he is still the same, and will always be the way he is, and deserves no slack. Which brings to mind someone else.

    IMHO, it sounds like Tom Argo suffers from sociopathy. I know because my mother-in-law has it. My wife, daughter, and I avoid her and haven't spoken to her in over three years because of the heinous things she's done to us and other family over the years. Sociopaths have no friends, Bobby. Only unknowing accomplices and victims. Research it online and you'll see. Also check Antisocial Personality Disorder. That is the new term used for this illness now. Here's the definition.



    Antisocial Personality Disorder is also known as psychopathy or
    sociopathy. Individuals with this disorder have little regard for the
    feeling and welfare of others. As a clinical diagnosis it is usually
    limited to those over age 18. It can be diagnosed in younger people
    if the they commit isolated antisocial acts and do not show signs of
    another mental disorder.

    Antisocial Personality Disorder is chronic, beginning in adolescence
    and continuing throughout adulthood. There are ten general
    symptoms:

    not learning from experience
    no sense of responsibility
    inability to form meaningful relationships
    inability to control impulses
    lack of moral sense
    chronically antisocial behavior
    no change in behavior after punishment
    emotional immaturity
    lack of guilt
    self-centeredness

    People with this disorder may exhibit criminal behavior. They may
    not work. If they do work, they are frequently absent or may quit
    suddenly. They do not consider other people's wishes, welfare or
    rights. They can be manipulative and may lie to gain personal
    pleasure or profit. They may default on loans, fail to provide child
    support, or fail to care for their dependents adequately. High risk
    sexual behavior and substance abuse are common. Impulsiveness,
    failure to plan ahead, aggressiveness, irritability, irresponsibility,
    and a reckless disregard for their own safety and the safety of
    others are traits of the antisocial personality.

    Socioeconomic status, gender, and genetic factors play a role.
    Males are more likely to be antisocial than females. Those from
    lower socioeconomic groups are more susceptible. A family history
    of the disorder puts one at higher risk.

    There are many theories about the cause of Antisocial Personality
    Disorder including experiencing neglectful parenting as a child, low
    levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain, and belief that
    antisocial behavior is justified because of difficult circumstances.
    Psychotherapy, group therapy, and family therapy are common
    treatments. The effects of medical treatment are inconclusive.
    Unfortunately, most people with Antisocial Personality Disorder
    reject treatment. Therefore, recovery rates are low.

    Wait WHAT? Dude, this is Brian Smith. Are you telling me that guy lives around here? Oh, I've heard shit, but I didn't know that. I also remember the fake death as well that Chris Rifkin brought up. I know this guy had made a few overtures to both Dean Sternberg (within another) and Tommy Spadafora (shadow image), but fortunately they didn't get hosed by this guy. I've heard shit though. Yeah, if he shows up at the chance, please let me know. I'd like to see this for real.

    Brian
