With my current work / day job and family life too, it has been put simply, become unrealistic to continue to even try to just cover any reviews whatsoever, leave alone news updates, interviews, etc.
Unfortunately too, this is not like my statement at the beginning of last year either, with the temporary closure, this I'm quite certain is permanent.
It really felt good!
I had some great years from 2010 - 2012, but 2013 was a real struggle though and my day job has just made it impossible to do much at all.
I even changed my job to go and work for someone else, with the hope of having more realistic opportunity to keep things going. That didn't work and in fact it has become worse!
I am forever in your debt folks for the support.
Over 200,000 views over the sites different pages has been extremely pleasing.
I have been very fortunate in that I started writing for Dave White at the Classic Rock section of About.com for just under 5 years, briefly covered some live reviews for Jeb at Classic Rock Revisited and then briefly for Rock 'n' Roll Universe and then finally Chambers of Rock for just over four years.
I had hoped this could've gone further as when work was more realistic, I got a real kick out of being able to share some fantastic press releases / news updates, exclusive interviews and sharing my thoughts on some really killer albums and DVDs!
My utmost thanks too go out to all the musicians who have been so kind to give me their very limited time on interviews, some chatting away kindly for well over an hour, sometimes an hour and half, fantastic times, thank you all!
To the best PR people in the world and you know who you are, professional to a fault!
Thank you, with the material and your backing / support, I wouldn't have been able to bring Chambers of Rock to the world!
There will be a handful more reviews that will be posted, that I have promised I would post, although they were releases from November / December 2013, that really shows how little time I have had to do anything with the site.
I hope to post those in the next couple of weeks ..., but ..., well, we'll see.
Have a fantastic year and many more to come and don't forget, keep on rockin'!
