Rick Mathews replied to Pan Times's discussion Stewart out for Panorama 3-peat in 2020
"Excellent. However, not to diminish the importance of what you've so rightly said, we all know that visions take a lot of financial support. I am very much surprised that Mr Stewart haven't established a foundation and use the triple crown…"

Rick Mathews replied to Pan Times's discussion Hazel Henley of Girl Pat Steel Orchestra - Trinidad & Tobago
"It's simply because the people elected to take the helm are only there for the prestige and position and not visionary individuals who actually have the ability to advance this great instrument. You will be again making this comment ten years…"

Rick Mathews replied to Pan Times's discussion Well Ain’t That Ah (&*!!%$@%&?!) Desperadoes Never Got the Memo - ?
"Common guys! Are the name calling, the branding, the subtle innuendos really necessary? I have listened to Renegades presentation at least half a dozen times looking for flaws. Unless my ears are betraying me, I just cannot find any. Is Mr. Stewart…"

Rick Mathews replied to Pan Times's discussion Exodus wins injunction against Pan Trinbago -- “Yes” to Kees’ ‘Savannah Grass’
"Wish all you experts in the case would remove your blinders and take a good look at the big picture. First of all Exodus have the right to request a change of tune since there is no stipulation preventing then from doing so. However, Pan Trinibago…"

Rick Mathews replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion DUVONE STEWART SPEAKS HIS MIND!!!
"Before you open your rear end and let the shit fly, you should first do your home work. Also, Mr. Stewart did not call on divine intervention, he was merely stating a biblical fact. (There is a difference you know). PLEASE, reread his comment and…"

Rick Mathews replied to Claude Gonzales's discussion So where is the GLOBAL STEELPAN PERFORMANCE INITIATIVE from IMBERT and DOLLY with all the GLOBAL DIPLOMATIC connections we have?
"It is great to hear the comments by you all and your concerns. However, I have a question. Has any one recognize that Trinidad and Tobago currently has a band with the best resume of any steel orchestra in the history of our country of Trinidad and…"

Rick Mathews replied to Bugs's discussion Did Trinidad All Stars pick the wrong tune for Panorama 2018?
"Sir, you are spot on. All Stars have been using the same template for the past three to fours years. The tune was not the issue but the repeated format from the past. The judges can smell that from a distance. Mr. Edwards is a much, much better…"

Rick Mathews replied to London Gabriel's discussion Song of choice panorama
"I somewhat agree with you. However, My suggestion is that all composers should have a dead line to submit their tunes for panorama prior to Christmas. A committee would then choose a set number of tunes that qualify as challenging for the bands.…"

"That quote suck. Big time. How would you like to tell that to Usain Bolt? OK Usain, I know you got it all. You've covered all aspects of your pre-race preparation. But, just give about 85% of your ability this time. No need to show what you…"
