OnlineRock Allows Musicians and Music Fans To Build Free Websites
Posted on May 21, 1999A new Web community called OnlineRock is helping musicians and die-hard fans use the Internet to promote their musical endeavors. At OnlineRock, music enthusiasts can easily create their own website, post messages on the site's bulletin board, chat interactively with others, and learn about new online and offline music technology. All of the site's services are free, and OnlineRock gives its members 10 megabytes of web space.
"The future of music is on the Internet," said Steve Beck, founder of OnlineRock. "I've been playing in rock bands for more than 18 years and know how difficult it is for many musicians to get the recognition they deserve. Our members, however, have the necessary tools and information that they need to promote themselves. They can easily build their own website and include sound files, graphics, tour dates. It essentially becomes their online promo kit for the whole world to see and hear."
