Coke Quenches Thirst for Music

Rock legend Frank Zappa said, "Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read." Maybe that was then. But now, the Internet provides tons of information at your fingertips. Rock journalists and fans can no longer be accused of ignorance or stupidity. Cokemusic.com provides avid fans and writers with biographies of new and old bands, gives tour information and album reviews. This site is fun and worth checking out. Career-wise, the most useful section gives information about careers in the music business, including music journalism.
