Trivia

The Rockmine Archive

Rockmine is Europe's largest independent rock music archive. It's a vast one-stop resource for publishing, radio, TV, film and the press but also fans. Built around four enormous collections: the written word, ephemera/memorabilia, audio and video. Click the link above to get a feel for the size of it.

Rockmine versus Fake News

Today's fake news is tomorrow's fake history. Rock music is full of legends but that isn't good enough for Rockmine. For more than 30 years, I've gone behind the myths to uncover what really happened. I've carefully deconstructed stories that could have cost millions if published to reveal the truth. Sometimes, however, the truth is even stranger; like the KGB plot to kill Elvis.

The Rock Mall

The Rock Mall is now focussing on museum grade items - back issues, press packs and rock film memorabilia. Other items of memorabilia can be found on my eBay shop.

Rockmine Publishing

Rockmine Publishing currently has one publication, "Rock and Pop on Television". It runs to 1,926 pages in ePub format and features more than 28,900 entries, 50,000 song titles and 637,000 words. Taking the form of a daily almanac, it's also fully searchable by show, presenter, artist/group and song title.

Although I've updated it to more than 50,000 entries it will not be available as a new edition. It will be used purely by me for research for TV and media productions. Instead, a new publication titled, "I Fought The Law" will be available later in 2019. Again, it takes the form of a daily almanac listing arrests, court cases, lawsuits and even jail time involving musicians over the last 6 decades.

Rockmine Television

The intention has always been to make Rockmine TV an aggregator for any rock music related video. The idea was you'd find all the Eurovision Song Contest Winners, all the U.K. Number One singles, a selection of Rock Festivals plus various other topics, genres and styles in one place. After the recent EU vote on copyright, I'm mothballing this.
