Buddy Holly Tribute

Pretty cool compilation cd/Lp. Big name bands covering Buddy Holly songs as a tribute. I thought it was pretty cool that The Detroit Cobras made it on the same record as Lou Reed and Patti Smith.

here is a more in depth article about the release:

Made a facebook like page. I also made a group on facebook, search, " DETROIT BLACKOUT" and either join the group or like the page.

I'm also going to be making flyers on paper and I was wondering if any of my readers would like to have any PHYSICAL COPIES of them. If so, please leave a comment on the wall of either the GROUPS page or the LIKE page of Detroit Blackout.

Thanks so much. I appreciate it. I need to know if this is worth doing also, it creates a voice for my audience of readers so I can get feedback from you about the blog. Stuff I could be doing or stuff you don't want to see on here etc etc.
