This blog is quite a success. Since january 2004, we have more and more audience daily and this is quite significative now in terms of unique visitors.
We have added more features these past few days as:
- legal mp3 music and songs to download (with the source of each website, of course),
- new links : radiostations that we love, cool venues that still play the best music in the world... lol!
- a "tip jar" with a PayPal button... You can donate Euros or US Dollars if you like this site... We are all volunteers there!! So maintaining a website costs a little bit in time, energy and bandwith... By the way, if you like it, say it!!!
In the next following links, we will still develop more features for you on this blog... And we will have a great surprise we have discussed yesterday evening... Stay tuned!
For those who know us, please remove the old address of our ex-website on perigord.com and give only this current address:
I'm pleased to announce a new WCRDV heading in the "Album photo" section called: Album by the artist. The idea is to make readers discover an album by the words of the artist himself. We launched "Album by the artist" with a great AOR band from Norway, Stoneflower!
Guitarist Jon Johannessen talks about the making of "Crack a little smile", one of the best melodic rock release of 2003!!
Thanks to Yahoo.com. Just a few days after submission, our weblog is now in the Yahoo! Directory at the Music Weblogs category: "Westcoast Rendez-Vous - news and reviews about West Coast music and classic rock of the '70s and the '90s."
After some weeks, we have had a great response and feed back from you fans of Westcoast Music and from artists, managers and record companies.
This helps us to get you news and views about the music we love and we are proud after so many years involved in Westcoast Music (remember "Westcoast Rendez-Vous - The Newsletter", The 2 "Westcoast Music Festivals" at Disneyland in Paris in the Nineties, "Bill and Mari Cantos tour in France" and for some concerts, some radioshows, interviews...) to be here again.
Here are words from some artists that have newly discovered our new website (which is a weblog):
"Wow, your site looks terrific! really nice. thanks so much for the links, and it's great seeing the pictures of you and Arnold and i from last year. that was a really fun evening (...) Once again, congratulations on your site!"
- George Marinelli Jr
