Rock 'n' roll was nearly dead in the mid-'70s. Overblown arena rock had sucked the life out of it. On the other side, singer/songwriters had taken all the danger out of it. But in 1976, the Ramones released their first LP of stripped-down high-speed punk rock, and a revolution was born. This year, 2016, is the fortieth anniversary of that release. It is my goal to chart the evolution of '80s college rock by reviewing every significant album from the Ramones first album to the release of Nirvana's Nevermind, the album that best defines the end of the eighties musically, on the fortieth anniversary of each album's release. This is the beginning of a 16 year journey, for me and you. 

So why Patreon? The reviews are going to be on a dedicated website called "Forty Years On - The Eighties in Review." I will need money to run that site. Your money will help me track down the LPs and/or CDs I will need to write my reviews. Anything you can contribute will also give me the encouragement I need to keep going, to know that you are enjoying what I'm doing enough to send me a few of your hard-earned dollars.

There really isn't anything I can send you in way of a reward. The website is right out there in the open. You can read it without paying me anything. But if you do contribute, you will have my thanks. 
Goals
$2 of $250 per Per review
At $250 per review, I will remove advertising from the website.
