Rules? Sure, a few:
- Keep it real. - Please only bands/musicians from published sources. There's plenty out there; you don't need to make up any on your own. Cite as much source information as possible.
- Keep it honest. - Please don't cut and paste other people's work.
- Keep it clean. - Please only use four letter words only when they are direct quotes, or part of a band's name, lyrics, album title, etc.
