Rock News for Tuesday 6th April, 2010
Hey all, well, we've just had an incredible stormy morning with some serious golf ball and bigger size hailstones coming down here, amidst a huge thunderstorm, but that's passed now so, just a gloomy Tuesday afternoon, here in Michigan.
Not too much news for you today, kind of quiet out there on all counts, so I'm trying to get some reviews wrapped up to post for you folks.
Have a great week!
