    I just love how the first ad that I see when opening this page is for ‘Opioid Dependence Doctors’, which is basically just another term for DRUG DEALER…I survived the 80’s and 90’s music scenes and yes, there were a lot of drugs and yes I had a drug problem…this is just so cliche. I hate to think that the people in our scene are immediately associated with heroin and addiction.

    Disambiguation Alert!
    “… news of the death of Tears For Fears, …”

    Is that a typo because I’m skeptical about that.
