20 years of Rocks Off

July 14, 1998 – to date

It is time to celebrate our first two decades

20 years ago Jaxx, Gazza and Voodoo started Rocks Off as a message board. Some months later on March 23, 1999 we created the website, in May 2003 a message board in Spanish and later in November 2011 a Facebook page.

20 years of free optional entertainment and yes totally free, totally optional, but not sure if it is totally entertaining!

We started when connecting to the net required a telephone line; I got an additional telephone line because of this…  during those days we were waiting a few days to get setlists or shows reports and we were happy to get them, no complaints about repeated setlists!

We have appeared in several international rock magazines, newspapers, books, radio stations, TV, and professional movies.

We were the site of the year in the official Rolling Stones website, a video at the official website credited Rocks Off for announcing the show number 2,000 the video included testimonies of the four members, Riffy mentioned Rocks Off to the Rolling Stones in a press conference in NYC (two press conferences Licks Tour and Shine a light), we have 28 entries in Wikipedia since a long time, we were mentioned by the BBC twice.

We have contacted very important people and celebrities because of our website.

All of the above will be in detail in the upcoming webpage of 20 years of getting our rocks off along with your contributions in this thread.

But wait, that’s not all, we are going to make exclusive t-shirts and mugs of Rocks Off of FYG, WY? And also a contest with cool prizes, this one later.

We know that we suck and probably have sucked all the time, we also know that nowadays we’re not the same, but who gives a fuck anyway, we will be here until we die or until only Gazza and/or I post whichever comes first, let’s do some living after we die.

But…

WE NEED YOUR HELP


There are a lot of stories to tell about these 20 years so we want to make a page in rocksoff.org about our history, funny moments on both on line and in real life, so please tell us about moments to include, send pictures, videos, send girlfriends, wives, sheep, joints, fake Joeys, Paris’ thongs, beers, send whatever you want.

If you have pictures or videos and don’t have a place to post them send them to voodoo@rocksoff.org

I once told Gazza that The Stones would be working on a new studio album. Gazza responded in telling me he doubted that ...

Then I said to him (and everyone) .. "F**K You Gazza ... Will Ya!!" ...


It was grand -

20 years?  Holy shit!  This may call for THE SUMMIT OF THE CENTURY! 
Best memory with this crew was the time the Unholy Trinity met up in NY. My job was to get everyone to Giants Stadium and then got tasked with keeping an eye on Gerardo. He disappeared to get beers during the opening number and he never returned. I wondered how I was going to explain this to Jaxx. At the end of the show, while walking down the exit ramp, there was Gerardo singing Satisfaction using the sole of his shoe as a microphone. I never bothered telling folks I had lost him until months later.  Grin
Happy Anniversary you crazy bastards.

I've never seen a more wretched hive of scum and debauchery...rent seems reasonable. I can hear the music. Maybe I stay awhile and talk religious undertones in Bob Marley's music?

Despite not posting much, I am a relative old timer since 99 or 01, don't remember. Best Stones site by a country mile. Hate to sound like I'm sucking up, but it's down to how the site is managed. People are free to say what they want and only egregious stuff is banned. Above all though, it's the sense of humor on this site that means it leads the way. Well done to all the management and frequent contributors.

Voodooscrounge stealing the Paris Hilton thong. Maxlugar creating the Lotus Couch. Jair telling gazza fuck you, will ya. Sirstonesalot playing the tambourine. Starbuck and his aliases and cover bands. Jb and his obsession with ticket sales. The subsequent humiliation of Jb and Voodoopug. Voodoopug’s band having to pay to play.

And who could forget Telecaster?  Nolte - The Rocks Off patron saint


Cafe hostess Jill. Joey’s thousands of useless posts. Ten Thousand Motels. Riffy’s endless rants against Obama.

Rocks Off's original HOT TAMALE!!
!


---------------------------------------------------

Reading my profile, it says I joined in 2008...but I know that I joined the earlier board version during ABB...so I am thinking mid-2005...about the same time I started going to the Shidoobee January Brunches (where I met Doug and TomL the first time) and my own Glimmer Twins were born (Sept 2005)...here they are in official Stones Confetti from MCI center Oct 3, 2005 (age 1 month):
...


So, I know this place was a magical place when I started BEGGING for someone's extra AC 2006 ticket...Then a sweet angel named Mary...our very own GotToRollMe Mary came thru. She didnt have a paypal account and trusted me as we talked terms about mailing the tkt and payments etc...I got a $60 ticket (one of about 100 sold) in the smallest  venue of the tour for one of the BEST shows I have ever seen.
>She Was Hot
>Loving Cup
>The BEST ADTL I have ever seen
>An amazing Streets Of Love, yeah...it really was amazing
>No Miss You
>Briefly Met LJ and others ( I was a bit shy and didnt "get" the whole thing yet.
>Great Shidoobee Party before/after

It was that concert that forged my faith in the folks at RocksOff...and I had the pleasure to make a friend with our dear GTRM!! I only knew her from RO and FB and our brief encounter, but she was the sweetest.
If not for her and her ticket, I would not have stuck by RO for this long.

Of course other highlights have been seeing and meeting others in Buffalo, Mexico, Dublin, DC, Raleigh and other cities. Meeting folks multiple times is so much fun...

I even had the pleasure of serving drinks to Rob (SaintOfMe) in DC on several occasions as his business trips would have him come to where I tended bar (with live music). My Stones T-Shirt served as a catalyst for conversations...(Are you on RO? Who are you on Shidoobee?)


I could drone on and on...but THANK YOU GAZZA!!!
GRACIAS VOODOO!!


I hope to meet more of y'all at future shows and parties...


PS...another great highlight was the Trading Trees we would have setup...I still have the original Marco 5 CD set of outtakes and remixes...I could use a fresh set of files as these CDs have worn out, but I wont toss them...
See ya in 2038!!!
