Hey : Oldschool what are we trying to do give Rhythm & Blues A new name.I
Thought Oldschool was a name that young kid's today give R&B because they
are trying to be hip But haven't a clue to what it was ARE GOING ON. A rose
was a rose in 1950 and still is a rose in 2003.Us older people don't need to
misguide the young by pulling their coat tail the wrong way.
