by Henry Schneider, Published 2013-10-20Quote from Archie: "Imagine my surprise when recently I received an invitation from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to have my works over the years included in the Museum & Archives in Cleveland, OH... Who woulda thunk it... Today I ship off to them 20 pounds of "Eurock" - every issue & catalog. Sorting through everything has been a real trip, inspiring me to publish another book. Work has begun, tentative title Eurock - Music & Second Culture Post Millennium, an Anthology including material not in the first book - Also... NOT 700+ pages long"
