Captain Obvious says, "Old Rock 'N Roll music news takes so long โŒ› to become new news in the world of Pop Rock's reality selling an all too familiar death theme. ๐Ÿ“ณ ๐ŸŽธ ๐ŸŽค ๐Ÿ’€ :oops:

And now it's news? :?

Riddick, I scanned the FULL STORY for 1998's double Grammy winner. I thought The Wallflowers' death knell song 'One Headlight' would be missing and it was. I expected to see their whole list beginning in 1958 and it must be available somewhere on line. :confused:

The first song here is one "British Invasion" rock band's 1980's ballad but the second song is spot on topic American Pop Rock!
