The Thorkelsons '06


Get psyched like you've never gotten psyched before. Rock Club, with financial sponsorship from the Chubb Group, is proud to present the 2006 Peter Halsten Thorkelson* Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Rock Art Form.

This world-famous award is incredibly prestigious, and there are precious metals embedded in the award statuette. It's really something. Here's a picture of one--notice that the table is very sturdy. That's because the statue is 19 lbs. of solid gold, mined from politically-unstable areas, so you know it's got street cred:

Over the next two weeks, watch this space as the Rock Club academy, or "brain trust", if you will, will present their choices for such exciting categories as

Best/Worst Show
Best Use of Special Effects ("FX!")
Best/Worst Albums of 2006!
Best/Worst Singles of 2006!


*AKA Peter Tork, member, Monkees, born Washington DC 1943

And thanks again to our sponsors, the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies. Consider insuring your belongings with Chubb Group Insurance.

As the publicist for the Peter Halsten Thorkelson mentioned in your blog, thanks for the comments. As they say, there is no such thing as bad publicity. PHT has some very heavy chops in numerous ares, so your choice of award, the statuette of a very heavy winged victory, could work.

We certainly hope that a "Thorkelson" will be awarded to "the Thorkelson" when his new CD, Peter Tork and Shoe Suede Blues, "Cambria Hotel" is released in January '07.

Check out a sneak preview of four of the tracks at http://www.myspace.com/petertorkandshoesuedeblues.

Thanks, an by the way, if you need a world class "Presenter"...PHT did a fabulous job of presenting "Long Island Music Hall of Fame Awards" to Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals and Mose Allison back in October 2006. Check it out.
