2016 Interview with Scott Stambaugh
"My first encounter with Neil was when I wrote him several years after I had left the site, about an issue with an artist I brought to IAC. I soon found that even though he had experienced some frustration with the site he had become majority owner of, he still cared about IAC and the artists there. We had a long running conversation about the future of the site and although at the time I was quite adamant that I didn't want to do a relaunch til the stat situation was fixed, it did become pretty clear that the site was still valued by the heart of the membership, so we did the relaunch anyway. Then we got the stats rolling and did some other vital fixes so what's now IMP is without a doubt superior to the original site. Course I got to know Neil during this time and found him to be a serious artist and musical spokesman. This interview is long overdue but it comes at a time when Neil is releasing a new series of books about his life and music. The man has a lot of stories and there is much to learn from him and his journey."
That was then.

Thank you, Jimmy.
I haven't had much if any interest or reason to visit the site or my page since last October. Fortunately we stay connected in other ways.
Stay safe, healthy and strong ... and keep the strings in tune.

Thank you Cowboy! I think IMP is like a horse losing it's shoe and there is no livery stable in this old town!

Thank you, Jimmy, for those ever so kind words of support and friendship and your raison d’être for your continued membership – that means a lot.
Had my heart not been thinking of the members of IACMusic at the time and how I felt the site made such a valuable contribution to them as artists, I would not have made a personal as well as the very large financial investment that I made in the site. I sincerely felt that the site was one of if not the best site on the planet for songwriters, musicians, artists and bands.
I continue to feel so, albeit sadly acknowledging at the same time that in several respects the site has fared poorly over the last seven or eight years. I and several other long time members continue to work toward re-establishing a path for the site to reach the potential that we truly believe is within its grasp, recognizing at the same time that nothing worthwhile in achieving ever comes easily.
I share your feeling of our long friendship being a personal treasure and value it so, and I continue to hang onto the dream of a ‘fireside song swap under the stars’ coming to pass one day - perhaps somewhere on the banks of 'where the mighty rivers meet.'
As for my writing, I write from my heart, Jimmy, and am not ashamed to wear it on my sleeve and on the pages and in the chapters of my life.

Hey Cowboy you are the reason I am still here. You more than anyone has worked so hard to keep this site relevant. Your support of so many singer songwriters who travel through the wonderful music world here is unparalleled. Your friendship over so many years has been a personal treasure for me. I close my eyes and I dream us up a fireside song swap under the stars. It may never become a reality, but dreaming is second best. Your writing in the lyric form or your novels is so admired by so many especially me!

I am taking a step back. I worked my socks off last year. Due to the emergency that happened. I tried different stuff most popular The man who second Lonely freedom. Me singing. Wish i could sing like Bowie. Maybe one day someone with the right accrutements. I tried to make it different. Released my version of the B52,s Rock lobster breakbeat mix no guitars. The big question is i copied Abba SOS figured it out. I use all the original synths and Pianos
