Now safely out of troubles way and living in Northern France, English writer Jeff Perkins is ‘busy’ (translated as having a ball) exploring the music scene across Europe via his two Blogcritics columns Eurorock and Classic Eurorock. Eurorock covers the new releases that land on his doormat on a daily basis, much to the disgust of Madame Postlady and her overloaded French donkey, Marcel le Parcel. In amongst all of this frantic activity he brings you concert reviews, interviews, and other features from the European music world. His journeys not only take him to the glamour of Paris and London but also to some offbeat places that you would need an atlas to find. Classic Eurorock covers music for people of a certain age, a bit like Jeff himself, and deals with European re-issues, re-masters, re-releases, and some that just deserve to be remembered. So whether it’s hello, bonjour, hei, ahoj, szia, hola, gutentag, ciao, dag, hej, or salut, long live rock!
