Rearview: The Week in Review (6/28/08-7/4/08)
Here's a wrap up of all the great coverage you missed this week on Backbeat Online while you were busy preparing your plans for the Fourth of July and fuming with patriotic outrage at Rene Marie's decision to hijack the national anthem at the state of the city speech...
We brought the sad, sad news that Tickle Me Pink bassist Johnny Schou died on the day his group's new album was set to debut and we covered the in-store appearance that was hastily converted to a memorial service.
