ROCKWIRED keeps the audience charged with such editorial events as our ROCKWIRED ARTIST OF THE MONTH campaign and the annual ROCKWIRED READER'S POLL  AWARD.

There is an awful lot of talk these days about about how disposable the current pop set is and music critics (there are so many of them) who seem to be favoring the offerings of hip hop, country and folk-type artists. Rock n roll is clearly not the music of the day but ROCKWIRED.COM's founder BRIAN LUSH feels that this is the most exciting time for rock n roll. "Rock music doesn't have a lot of major label support but it's got the support of thousands of small, independent labels throughout the country that seem to be popping up everywhere. It's back to square one with rock music. It's just like the fifties when rock music go it's start on smaller labels like SUN RECORDS and CHESS RECORDS. With ROCKWIRED.COM, we are celebrating this spirit of independence because we feel that that is what makes rock n roll great. There was a time when the major complaint was that rock n roll had become too corporate and boring well guess what? Times have changed and rock music is more independent than ever and the independent spirit , creativity and industriousness that it takes to keep the music going is something that we highlight in every issue of ROCKWIRED MAGAZINE."

                                                     my name is Jeremy. I'm a Virgo and like long walks on the beach. I also have a tendency to be very crazy, you could say insane. You know, restrained by a straight jacket with a muzzle on my face but isn't that what ROCK N ROLL is about? Going fucking crazy and having a good time despite what others may think or even creating revolutions? This is why Rock N Roll best sums up my life. If that bothers you then please feel free to write it down on a piece of paper, fold it up real nice, and shove it up your ass!"
