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.

Bon Jovi Planning New Album
29 May 2001 | 0:00:00 GMT/UTC

Bon Jovi Bon Jovi are to start recording a new studio album early next year (2002). Fans can also expect a box set the following year (2003) to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary.

Jon Bon Jovi told Billboard, "We're looking to go into the studio in January. I've already started writing a little bit. Right now, I don't have anything to say as a solo artist. I know what I want to say as a band voice."

The band are currently touring supporting last year's Crush, which has now sold seven million copies worldwide.

The band have thought about a live album for a while, Jon said, "The hardcore fans have wanted a live album for years, but, also, a new generation of fans who just started with the band with Crush needed an education. They needed to know that we had nine other albums."
