Today I received an email from an artist thanking me for the great review I gave his album on iTunes. Not knowing him I searched the iTunes music store for his name and sure enough there was a glowing 5-star review of the album in question.
These Tunes are Simply Awesome, It brings me back to me early days back in Europe when I first started my band Luna Negra. The slow yet very hopeful and happy tunes are an inspiration to me. While I specialize in Flamenco guitar I feel like I can now reach new heights in music. – sic
Signed Ottmar Liebert. Looked up the other reviews by “Ottmar Liebert” and found 5 altogether. Notified iTunes of the impersonation.
Honestly, I always assumed you had a better command of the English language than THAT….
Oh my gosh! I’m glad he wrote you. It could have gone on for a long time if he hadn’t. That is pretty darned sneaky. Dishonest people are ready to do anything to get mediocre stuff a plug and foul up things for everyone. Their music is going to help you go to new heights?
Ottmar, that is not me either…i recently wrote withe the worde awesome so felt i should let you knowe…lovinge my guitar alwayes amore y paz, llindaskaye *******
But I doubt the artists are the ones putting up these reviews, no? Otherwise Ottmar wouldn’t have gotten a thank you note :)
