    Hey guys,
    I am sorry for spamming the comments section, but i failed to find ‘contact us’ option.
    do you guys accept guest post? I can provide you with a quality, well-researched and 100 unique article about a rock legend (say 500-600 words). In exchange I need only one active link to my client’s website (band t shirts selling store) in the end of the article.
    Thanks a lot in advance, no matter what you answer will be :)
    Marry xmass and happy new year.

    Helen

    Outside of Jason Bonham and Heart that was a pretty bad tribute to one of the greatest rock n roll bands of all time. Kid Rock? Seriously couldn’t line up some better acts? Buddy Guy got a much better tribute, not that he didn’t deserve it!
