    Looks like cleveland on a cloudy night, and you can barley see the “rock ‘n’ roll hall of fame” right were the dot is on the question mark.

    Maybe you take action and call them.
    Like Simon Robinson did all those years you can take over the management.

    So – if the artwork of the new site suggests anything – what will be the title of the new album? “?” (i.e. question mark), “Purple Smoke”, “Countdown”…. Or maybe “Early Start” (of the promo hype around the album 😉 ? Still – everything is happening 4-5 years too late, when band’s energy should have been transferred into new music, without wasting it during endless tours…

    Maybe it’s an end of the world joke, if we survive it then they will name it.

    REAT – and on my Birthday 🙂

    BUT – we need it to be a hard ROCK album and DP and we need some serious promtion.
    Act like the world Class band DP are on the promotion. That is for both Bruce and the record label.
