The thing I like about your music style Ralph, is that it's honest, and genuine, and to the point. Your style reminds me of Eugene Chadbourne's music. That's a compliment.

hey, i dig your Lou Reed thing.
Checked you out on the web! Keep up the music friend!

Hey, myself and the lady of the house don't have headphones or speakers for our computer. But I read your FAQ's and from getting the name from a Iggy Pop line right down to your liking of the Chords, I thought I was the only one around here that likes them.

You bastard, you're a musician! I knew you could do geometry because its the same frickin part of the brain!", says your old h.s. geometry tutor of ages ago, unless I've googled up the wrong guy and how many guys named Ralph Heibutski can there be in s.w. Mich?

Dig the lyrics man! "401K, IRA, Nest Egg went up in smoke, I guess it's only paper money at the end of the day." Hilarious and catchy. Dude, you gotta get it out there. It belongs on main street man.

Special thanks to John Hilla and Chairman Ralph for trucking all the way from MI. Your performances were awesome, and your longtime connections to Tony gave a very special personal perspective to the show. If you guys ever want to gig in Chicago, let us know!

Got your tapes and am slowly listening to them. I like the song about interviewing Ronald McDonald and the one after about business mission statements. Actually, all the lyrics I can make out (the recording's a little fuzzy) are good -- no surprise there. Interesting listening to someone who sings in a baritone like you (or Iggy or Leonard Cohen). I'm so used to male singers with high voices...
