Bennington was close friends with Chris Cornell, who died by hanging earlier this year, and performed Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” at the Soundgarden singer’s memorial in late May. He was the godfather of Cornell’s 11-year-old son, Chris. Cornell’s 53rd birthday would have been Thursday.

Yeah, not many people on the net make the kind of money I do here at TTM.   )(?

But hey, I can't be the only guy left on the planet that still thinks good friends/mates to hang out and make music with is worth more than money...  ::)

Apparently not, we're all still here with you right?
Oh wait.....we don't pay lol

Seriously though, you can't run a business without making money....but if you have unlimited reserves of cash from other sources you could fund SoundCloud operation....eg google, Microsoft etc....hell even the recording industry could float the site, and snap up all the good artists and exploit them for money promote them etc
Save a whole bunch of cash looking for the next big thing ..... just a thought....but one that'll never fly

Yes indeed JOOM. Nearly 8 years of making music with computer/iPad and all thanks to Kristal forum users and then the migration to this wonderful place👍

Well, it's people like you and the rest of the crew here that make this a wonderful place.  Out of all the websites/forums/other stuff I've built over the years, this is by far my favorite accomplishment.  And I didn't even really do anything, except sit back and watch the members come in and make it what it is.  I can take absolutely no credit whatsoever, except for coming up with the name.  And even that was a fluke, because I named it thinking of the two track trails in the woods I like to spend time on.  Didn't even consider the idea that people would naturally think of two tracks of music.

I had hoped to run into 2-3-4 people who wanted to play around with music, but had no idea what it would turn into, or that it would morph into so many years worth of great times and let me meet so many great people.

I got lucky on the draw...  :D

You might not think of it this way Mr. Joom, buy you saved a lot of friends / musicians from losing contact. The KAE forum was slowly dying, and as that happened TTM took over as a place to meet up.

 I have said this before, but Thank You for running the place!

As for Soundcloud, I have always wondered HOW they could offer such a great service for NOTHING...now I know. This sucks for sure, but after Soundcloud going back to Sound Click or the few other ones I used many moons ago will just not get it....not at all...

Thanks for the article Kevin!
TTM - It is the antidote for the banal idiocy of our current society.

I'm sure there were lots of other places to go when the KAE forums started having problems, Smurf, but I'm glad some of you ended up picking TTM as one of them.  I've been thinking a lot lately about the friends I've made here...

Not a Metal fan, but I found this piece while searching for SC references in the news.
Sounds encouraging...?
