Introducing The Classic Rock Appreciation Society

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,



It is with great honor, aplomb and perhaps a teeny bit of trepidation, that I hereby announce the start of a brand new blog and club of sorts, the Classic Rock Appreciation Society.



I'll be updating with news, views and perhaps an occasional inter-view regarding all things rock and roll, from soup to nuts (I expect they'll be quite a few of those. . .)
