"Saw them last night at The Garage in That London, no support and they totally rocked the place. Quite a bit of stuff from the new album and you could tell they'd put some serious rehearsal time in, all the new stuff sounded great live. If…"
"You got the package I wanted! Here's my review:
You can't really compare this new disc to their late 80's and 90's work because it is so different, but of course, we do anyway. Is it as classic and "good" as their older…"
"Andy, are you sure the new Posies is coming to you, or is it a Smithereens single (see your earlier post). :)
I pre-ordered the Blood/Candy CD which is coming with a signed poster and 3 buttons plus downloads of 2 exclusive demos. Hope that comes…"

Hey, welcome to The Tribe! Long time since we connected on the Not Lame front but glad yr here, Kyle! Yeah, a bit different than Not Lame but RRT is a site for cool rockers like us - lifers - is long overdue! There’s a lot coming in the next few months but for now, get in join some groups and get things lit up! (btw, Do check out this new band ORANJULY on the NL site - VERY Jelly!)
Now, I need your help – PLEASE post the link to the site on your Facebook or Twitter account or just simply let your friends know – The Tribe wants others like you. YOU are the type of cool, rocking person that makes this all work – and I’m sure you have other friends that would really be totally down with what RRT is doing.
Hope all is well by you in WA......

"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"

So Mike Nesmith. Yeah. WTF, right? Private, reclusive, mysterious for many years. A couple of years back, he got on Facebook and he posts long, winding tales about himself, his dogs, his home, his past, and a really lovely Mother's Day post last weekend. Photos go up. The whole thing. It's like he disappeared and then came back on his own terms. I didn't know how to take it. I'm a huge Monkees fan, no doubt. And, being a woman/girl of a certain age, I have a favorite and that favorite is Mike.…See More
