A Year in the Life

Posted on Monday, December 3, 2007 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments9 Comments

Well, here we are: the one year anniversary of Bring Back Glam!

I started this website late on a Sunday night, exactly one year ago today. I was sick and tired of hearing hip hop or country on every radio station. I thought back to a time when I was most musically satisfied: my youth, when Glam Metal was king. Adult thinking - and education - kicked in and made me realize I could use the power of the pen to do my part to Bring Back Glam!

It seems I'm not the only who loves the genre, judging by your eager comments and opinions. Internet radio stations are programmed to support our type of tunes and Sweden is now a bastion of glam.

For better or worse, I've tried to talk about the most important music topics in my life -- and awaited your thoughts. I've shared with you my favorite bands, favorite concerts, favorite experiences related to music. Thanks to this website, I've made friends with people all over the world and interviewed some really famous musicians. I've stood backstage or at the barricade of some really great shows and I've gotten to share those experiences with all of you, which is the best part.

Each day I'm amazed that people stop by and actually read what I've written.  That's a gift everyday and I'm eternally grateful.

My very first post is titled "It's Time." Well, that time continues and together we can work to bring back real music, with true musicians. Let's get rocked.

Allyson,

Let me be the first to congratulate you on a successful year. I've been reading since the beginning and you've been a big help discovering new bands. You have a passion for the music and that's what sets your site apart.

Here's to Year #2! Cheers!

Hi Allyson,

Congratulations on your 1 Year Anniversary.

I think we were of the same mindset when we created our sites. Its funny that our website Anniversary dates are within a month from each other.

I enjoy your site, and I am a daily offender.

Glad you are keeping the rock alive!
