Roxie CD out
Ryan Roxie's excellent album "Peace, Love & Armageddon" now appears to be officially available at [link=http://www.roxie77.com/roxie77/lyrics.html]roxie77.com. You can pay by paypal (credit cards) and there`s also an offer to get the CD with a T-shirt at the same time. Don't wait, just buy it. Its a great album of pop/rock tunes in a Cheap Trick way and worth every penny. Highly recommended! There's samples on the site as well so you can try before you buy!

XM Greatest Hits
This evenings XM broadcast went off without a hitch. The band played the whole original 'Greatest Hits' album in order: Eighteen / Is It My Body / Desperado / Under My Wheels / Be My Lover / School's Out / Hello Hurray / Elected / No More Mr Nice Guy / Billion Dollar Babies / Teenage Lament '74 / Muscle Of Love.
There were also three short interview segments and Alice made a few amusing comments between songs about how they didn't have the stage show ("By now you`d all be covered in blood..."). Overall a success.
The show is replayed three more times over this week and you can all hear it by taking advantage of teh 3 day free trial over at [link=http://www.xmradio.com]XM radio. No credit card needed.
