I hear this a lot, but on some level I don't get it; yes, The Gomers are awesome musicians - but they are also some of the nicest, most supportive people imaginable.
I mean, I'm hardly a pro - the only band I was ever in was my punk band Gaunt Lent back when I was fifteen and living in rural Vermont - but at this point I've probably done somewhere between 75 and 100 different songs with The Gomers. Some of these performances doubtlessly sucked - but what the hell? Might as well (as the kids say) 'go for the gusto.'
Of course, my perception of all of this might be colored by the fact that Steve Burke was one of the first ten people I met in Madison when I moved here back in 1988.
Feel the Gomeroke love, jammyb. It feels you.
