I want to open this blog up to a more interactive forum now. I would love to know what are some of your greatest memories in music? Is there one song that brings flashbacks? Or what was your first concert? It is amazing how one single song can effect our emotions. There have been many times where I have heard a song or been at a show and my skin is sent into instant goosebumps. I have even had tears in my eyes a few times. Music can do that to us, it can shake us down to our core. And it is the soundtrack to our lives. Feel free to share any songs, any shows, I don't care if its punk-rock, hardcore, metal, pop-punk, whatever. The label isn't what matters its just the music...
I cant wait to hear what you all have to say.
Have a great weekend everyone and lets Save Rock and Roll.
“You need music. I don’t know why. It’s probably one of those Joseph Campbell questions, why we need ritual. We need magic and bliss and power and myth and celebration and religion in our lives and music encapsulates a lot of it.”~Jerry Garcia

I have to say the outpouring of support to this blog has been overwhelming. I can see there is a passion inside everyone that wants to keep music alive, to encourage people and uplift a deteriorating art. With your help it will happen. We can change the way music is heard and how it reaches the people. I again just want to clarify what I am doing here: All I am is a person who loves music and wants to make sure that I grow old knowing that rock and roll hasn't lost its integrity and still gets the credit it deserves. It is so easy to be overshadowed and disregarded by flash in the pan trends of the music industry. I just don't want to see that happen. I don't want our music television to be bullied by reality TV. I don't want our radio stations to ONLY play the top 3 requested singles that are on the Billboard 100 chart. I want everyone to be exposed to all the beautiful art that is out there.
This site is NOT an advertisement for my husband. This is is NOT a place that I will criticize your beliefs or opinions in music (EX: I will not reviewing records) I may suggest something that has touched me and share music that I love but it is only an opinion so take it as you will.
And it is NOT a place where I will place blame on any fan of art. I just want to point out what has been wrong in the past and come up with solutions to resolve the decline. I want this blog to be the match that starts a beautiful flame that will spread all over and reach many. We can band together and eventually we will see change.
Thank you all again from the bottom of this rock and roll heart. Keep coming back and lets
Save rock and roll!!!
