Andrew - I've been reading this board for two or three years. I am admittedly a lurker although I do find the term somewhat offensive. I just feel that I don't need to post only to see "my name in lights". I will post when I feel I can add something to the thread. Over the years, I have been involved in some of the more controversial threads, ie. Steve Perry/Journey (I'm a huge fan of both) and the Van Halen fiasco, only because I felt it necessary to say something. I have also enjoyed posting questions and comments on more obscure North American bands (and some of my faves) like Black 'n' Blue, Shooting Star, Rik Emmett, etc.

Being Canadian and living only 30 minutes outside of Detroit Michigan, I have constant access to great rock radio. The only problem is that the majority of the bands you all talk about on this board I have never heard of. But I am learning about them and LOVING IT. You have opened up a whole new world of music and for that I am very grateful.

I now know of, and own many CDs of, among others, Hugo, Johnny Lima, Danger Danger, The Storm, Babylon AD, Frontline, House of Lords, House of Shakira, Millenium, Steelhouse Lane, Ten, Two Fires, etc., etc., etc. And most embarrassingly, I know own the complete works of Harem Scarem (plus Rubber) and Emerald Rain, two Canadian bands based a few hours away from me, whom I had never heard of before your site. Thank-you!!!

I run a small site myself (my other passion, it's hockey related, not music) and every once in a while, my messageboard on that site causes me grief and I begin to wonder if it is all worth it too. The fact is that IT IS WORTH IT. If you love what you're doing, damn the opinions and negativity of a few. Don't let them spoil the whole thing. There are many more who appreciate all your hard work and quite frankly, would miss you and your site immensely if you ever left us.

Thanks for the introduction to the many new bands and I hope I will be able to continue to rely upon your awesome site for my future listening pleasure.
