I miss them from Spyro Gyra and that big butterfly to the sexy Roxy Music covers giving all us low self-esteems OF COURSE THAT IS WHEN IT STARTED 1978.... I could go on and on. P.S. COOL SITE. I HAVE SOME 80'S AND 90' PICKS TOO. LIKE ANY ONE CARES WITH ALL THE TROUBLE IN THE WORLD . BUT MUSIC BRINGS US ALL TOGETHER.
