For all you people out there who have wondered over the years "whatever happened to John J Francis ?", the question has now been answered. There is now an official John J Francis web site at http://www.jjfmusic.com it has been endorsed by John himself and is highly recommended by me as a must visit site. It has history, photos, album reviews and ....... wait for it ....... music downloads.
It is what John refers to as a 'cyber busking' site. You are free to download the music, all they ask is that you make a donation for what you think it is worth to you. A very refreshing concept in this era of internet piracy, fraud and rip off. So what are you still hanging around here for ..... go and check it out.
Go to this web site and sign the petition.Whalesrevenge
If you have a band listed on the site, and you have a Myspace page for it, send me the address and I will put it up with the bands entry. Everybody and their dog has got one. Mine is HERE if you want to check it out.
And a swag of other bio's on Aragon, Backwater, Man'O'War, Raiding Party and Glam Gods.
