Verdens beste rocketrommis la dessverre på røret i år. RIP Earl...

Arild Rønes - driver Rockaround Records, gitarist i Defrosters, skribent i ROCK
Bruce Springsteen - "Tracks"
Samling med masse uutgitt snacks som kom for en ti års tid siden
Bruce Springsteen - "Magic"
Kanskje ikke den beste skiva han har gitt ut, men definitivt hørbar. Nå gleder jeg meg til den nye skiva "Working On A Dream", som kommer 27. januar. Og så går det rykter om turné.
Bruce Springsteen
Alt annet The Boss har gitt ut (+ masse bootlegs) har gått jevnlig i løpet av året. Har lastet ned over 100 konsertopptak fra Backstreets, sjefens offisielle fanclub. Har hørt gjennom alle fra begynnelse til slutt, de fleste er bortimot tre timer lange.
Black Raven - "Rock In Threes"
Black Raven har utviklet seg til å bli et av de mest interessante teddyboy banda. Tøffe, gjennomtenkte og melodiøse låter.
Carlos & The Bandidos - "Bandido-A-Go-Go"
Fantastisk samling med et av rockabillyens mest særegne band. Meksikansk inspirert rockabilly med en svært karismatisk sanger.
The Hub Caps - "Full Throttle"
Svensk rockabilly trio. Litt "flinkisbilly" men alt trenger jo ikke å være rølpebilly heller.
Lou Cifer & The Hellions - "Rockville Nocturne"
Band som kjører teddyboystilen 100%. Tøft tysk band med en vokalist som høres mer engelsk ut enn de fleste englendere!
Various - "Walldorf Rock & Roll Weekend 2008"
Bra og variert samling fra artister som spilte på festivalen i 2008. Ikke de aller mest kjente artistene, men usedvanlig høy kvalitet på alle.
Johnny Cash på Österåker
Johnny Cash spilte i svenske fengsler også. Nå er hele showet utgitt på CD. En LP med utdrag fra konserten kom på 70-tallet.
Built For Speed - "Gretschoholic And Other Love Songs..."
Blir aldri lei denne.
