www.wildwestrocks.com is gone. . .
Sadly this past Thursday, May 31st, someone, claiming to be myself, made the request to my internet service provider (Yahoo) to close the Wild West – www.wildwestrocks.com.
So at this time the Wild West is gone. I believe I still have the domain name, but who knows. Parts of the site are backed up. In some respects as I am shifting gears from the Bernie Torme/ GMT Project, which consumed much of 2006, to a focus on local shows and talent (The CD and the shows at Barney McNabbs), it is good that the site get a spring cleaning.
Regarding Yahoo, they are and were terrible offering no apologies or any concern regarding the identity theft issue or the demise of my site – three years of blooming work!
For anyone who visited that site, it could be seen that it was a labor of love and it is sad and frustrating that it is gone and Yahoo can offer nothing. I do concede that backups were not routine at the Wild West. I have to conclude that I stepped on somebody’s toes somewhere for them to go to these lengths.
Anyway, stay tuned regarding the new Wild West site and yes the CD project I have been rumbling about will happen!
And to the idiot who did initiate the request to Yahoo, if there was such a request – f you.
