The Rocket
I'm working on a paper about the late, great Portland music paper the Rocket for the EMP Pop Conference, and I'm looking for people's thoughts on and memories of the publication. Since I'm not living in Portland anymore, it's kind of hard for me to track people down and get them to talk face to face. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind putting a little plug in the Willamette Week. People can email me at (rocketmemories at gmail dot com)...



I'm trying to explore the Rocket's role in the creation and explosion of the Northwest music scene of the eighties and nineties. I'm looking for people who found their bandmates through the paper or discovered bands way ahead of the curve by reading the paper (e.g., "I remember finding out about Nirvana because they were on the cover when Bleach was released.").
