I should clarify.
i didn't mean to imply that I thought Mr. Hibbs was at all smug. I referenced the 'smh' due to the reported lackluster showing for Mapex at winter 2016 NAMM. I meant to imply the seemingly smug manner in which others at Mapex have shown regarding the hard work and brand ambassadorship the old CSM forum required and provided. Very sad.
Joe is a good guy. He's got a lot on his plate and he is the only one really left out of the original crew other than one office person as far as I knew. Being in Artist relations there's not much he can do from our end I think. Joe is also a member here and it's been ages since we seen him here either.
