  2. Lonnie contacted me for a trade last year. I had dealt with him some years ago (15?), so I went ahead with a trade. After a month nothing had arrived, so I emailed him. I did get a reply saying that the CD's I had sent had not arrived either. What are the chances of that eh? Should have read this thread first....

    Don't Stop Believing

    It's pathetic that great music is recognized as this shite. I heard that glee version in a shopping centre radio the other day... i nearly cried it was so bad. theres a thread about ROck Sugar somewhere.....its a Loud & Clear project./. Is that Jesse Harnell Loud & CLear perhaps?

    Don't Stop Believing

    Now incredibly Journey are no.6 in the UK pop/download charts with Don't Stop Believing. It was never a hit first time round in UK and was always a fringe song in the public 'pop' conciousness. So when some guy wins X-Factor (American Idol for UK) and sings it twice during the series, the pop public take note and suddenly teenage hip-hopsters are singing Perry lyrics....bizzare. Now some crappy Disney type show called Glee cast have recorded it and it is no. 5 in the charts, so now we have 2 versions in the top ten. (Don't bother checking it out it is truly awful) Then this link got emailed to me today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKeA3-n27t8 it's band called Rock Sugar who have merged Don't Stop Believing & Enter Sandman. Enjoyable stuff Spread the word.....
