As the founding editor of Music-News.com I can say with some conviction that music is one of the most important things in my life. On a daily basis music seems to be the pivotal factor in my day. Be it the fist track I hear on the radio as I jump into the shower that then sets the tone for the rest of the day, or the last song played at a beer sodden gig. That seems to be my life… I guess it could be much worse. Long live rock n roll… erm and beer!
