I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Oasis Promise To Jam With Black Crowes
7 May 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Oasis Oasis' Noel Gallagher has said that the band will jam with the Black Crowes on their joint US Tour of Brotherly Love.

He said to SonicNet, "It'd be rude not to, wouldn't it, I have no doubts in my mind that there's gonna be various people on stage at various points - as for what we're gonna do, I don't know."

He said that he would like to cover (with the Black Crowes) Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven, the Beatles' Yer Blues and the Rolling Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want.

He said, "The first week, everybody will get to know each other and as the tour progresses, it'll be more of a communal thing." He went on to say, about Oasis, "We're completely relaxed รณ we're free, I don't think anybody's got preconceived notions."
