CRF ??


GM ~ The original Classic Rock Forums closed down years ago. A couple of the mods reopened it as CRF2 or Classic Rock Forums 2 .. All that I know is that it's changed hands one or more times. Hightea might or might not still be a mod or admin there.

There is a Classic Rock Forums but it has nothing to do with and has nothing in common with the original Classic Rock Forums which was Dwight's board. I know Sneelock and some others from that forum. Zombeels told me about this place and that some of the posters from the original Classic Rock Forums were posting here.
