PrestonRice: Maybe so, but what impresses me is that this means there are at least 8,000 people across the world who still care enough about this genre to sign up here. Not to mention, almost all of them are musicians.

Brian: Well it is definitely true that only a small fraction of that 8000 are active. And a lot of them seem to be spammers.

I enjoyed that. Thanks for posting. I had no idea he helped Huntington Beach get trademarked as Surf City USA.

When I was in my early 20's I got to do an interview for the local newspaper with Dean. Really nice guy. I remember him saying that being a star when he was in high school wasn't such a big thing, with people like Nancy Sinatra in his class.
