riddled with "Coming Soon" messages, it looks like it will soon
be chock-full-o-goodies for the TH/SWD fan, complete with lyrics, sound
& video, a guest book, and tour info. Keep checking back and see it
come to life before your eyes! (Note: I had nothing to
do with this, so don't go flaming me for registering Adam's domain name!!!)
