[i] We promoted the music of Blue Cheer- one of the wildest acid rock bands of all time, beginning on Sunday, 25-November-2012 through Wednesday, 12-December-2012. We hope you seek this famed band out and add them to your collection; you will be glad you did.
[ii] We hope to begin promoting the music of the Allman Brothers Band and their spin-off projects sometime within the next eight years. We hope you will be here when we do because they are a band worthy of investigation by the readership- you will be glad you did.
[iii] At some point, we will do the music of Sonny & Cher the same time we do the Mamas and the Papas. We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.
[iv] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.
[v] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Diana Ross and the Supremes- sometime within the next decade. Please, stay tuned for further developments
[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012. Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013. At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends. Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.
[vii] We hope to share the music of the Sex Pistols sometime within the next two decades. We hope you will remain vigilant for the day we do.
[viii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land. At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.
