Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm Folsom:

No swag here yet, still waiting for Michael's CD.
  12:00pm Stuart Rose:

That Rolling Stones cover was a sluggish affair, but maybe Off the Hook is a but repetitive and uninspired to begin with.

Anyway, one small misstep in the glorious parade of Número uno hit records.
