July was an amazing month for the Rockpit team. Three of us toured the States on a Rocking Road Trip, taking in Rocklahoma III and a whole host of other?tours along the way. We saw some amazing places, met some great friends and saw some amazing bands.

We will be reviewing all that we saw and posting the articles over the coming weeks. From next week the NEWS section of the website will be up ad running with news from around the globe.??

We aim to have the first phase of the website up and running by the end of the month but as our focus will be very much on quality and we will aim to bring you something a little different to other sites out there we want to get it just right.

New Releases

A treat for fans of Danny Vaughn. Just released is a new Live album by the man himself. 'The Road Less Travelled' sees Danny and band performing songs from Tyketto, Vaughn, From the Inside and Flesh and Blood. It just shows what a great talent this man is. The album was recorded live in Newcastle UK last year in uplugged mode.

US fans get the chance to check out Danny and Tyketto at Rock Gone Wild later in the year.

If someone sends us a copy we'll happily post a review!
