The musical backbone of GB, our drummer Oliver Charles, has launched his own website this week! Oliver’s going to be blogging from the road and studio, so click on the RSS feed to keep up with what’s going down. He also supports Autism awareness, and has set up an Amazon.com store where 10% of the proceeds go directly to Autism Speaks in Los Angeles.
You can also follow Mr. Charles by liking his Facebook fan page. Thanks to Fil Manley for putting these two great sites together!
