Hey Guys:

I'm on day 11 of a 40 day road trip promoting RB2, and thought I might document some of the insanity that's taking place. Currently, we're over in Leipzig Germany for the Games Convention. I'm hoping to keep updating on the course of this trip to give you some anecdotes (and I'm trying to post a video blog from our prior Las Vegas trip...stay tuned).

So anyway, yes: link to new blog!

Enjoy! (also there's a small note about the timing for our next 6 album announcement!)

ROCK!
JD

    Awesome. Thanks John. I'm really liking that a decent number of you at HMX are keeping blogs. Even if you talk about cooking like Sean does or what music you should listen to next like Johnlok does, it's all fun to read.

    I thought Moving Pictures was one of the 6, so it's interesting hearing that it's not. Good deal. I suppose this means you're going to announce them sometime next week, then, since that's the last week of August.

    Can't wait to hear about the new albums and absolutely am stoked about Moving Pictures! Keep up the good work and thank you for maintaining a blog while you are on the road. It is much appreciated.

    "PS. For those of you that have been asking about more full albums, we’ll actually be announcing 6 MORE albums (in addition to Moving Pictures) before the end of the month."

    Are you telling me you guys are going to put out 6 albums in one WEEK.. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE, i think my head would have exploded with 2 more albums before the end of the month but a whopping 6. there goes my first week of college. i was hoping to improve my GPA but i dont think that is possible now.

    No, I believe what they're saying is they're going to tell you what the next 6 albums are coming out down the line - 6 in one week would be quite intense.:D

    Can't wait for the new albums announcement.

    I've traveled to Europe on business many times myself, and struggled with the same cold beverage issue you guys are dealing with now. I found myself hitting the hotel bar every day and requesting a bag of ice that I could use with some soft drinks in my room. Had to get that cold soda fix, you know!

    No A/C and no ice is gross, but what is cool is 6 more albums on the way! Man, you guys are destroying the competition with a flood of DLC! I hope RB2 does big business for you guys and people can see that GH lost its soul long ago.

    Sounds like a blast! Hope you can keep cool.

    The news about 6 MORE albums really excites me. In addition to Moving Pictures and the three we already have (Screaming for Vengeance, The Cars and Doolittle), that'll make 10 albums total this year. That's freaking epic. I just can't wait to find out what the next 6 are! Come on next week, get here faster!

    I am not sure if we can assume that all 6 albums will be out before the end of the year. I am hoping they are.

    Hoping two are AC/DC and the Nirvana we have been on the verge of getting for some time now.

    With 500 songs promised by the end of the year, I'm pretty sure we can assume that. ;)

    Technically, if you count Boston and Best of the Who, it's 12 albums for the year (one for every month, though I suppose it wasn't one PER month).

    Germany is a blast. Hit the beer halls!

    He also mentions everyone's off today... which likely means no extra songs announcement at 2pm.

    But man SIX MORE ALBUMS ANNOUNCED NEXT WEEK.... wow!

    i keep forgeting that you call pop "soda" in the states. any time we cross the border and ask for some pop, they look at us for a sec confused before realizing what we mean.

    ah the little differences between Canda and the States.
