The Goal: Raise $1,200 to purchase a full page advertisement in Cleveland Scene Magazine asking "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" It will run for a week starting April 15th. The actual rock Hall of Fame ceremony is being held in Cleveland Saturday April 18th.
The Means: All we need is to sell 60 "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?" T-shirts and the ad will be bought along with 10 website banners. We only need SIXTY Cheap Trick fans in the entire world to make this happen. And the shirt is limited edition and very cool. You have probably seen a few around.
The Result: Everybody visiting Cleveland for the rock hall ceremony will thumb through the local magazine only to notice a giant "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame?" staring back at them in the newspaper and on the internet.
Look, I don't want to call out my fellow Cheap Trick fans but not only have I ranked every single Cheap Trick song for your enjoyment, I also started a band called "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame?" that will again be playing TWO FREE SHOWS this year of all Cheap Trick covers that will surely make you long for the real Cheap Trick. Between missing work to practice, filling up the van with gas and pricy marriage counseling, being in this band is a big sacrifice. But it is our way of kicking in to support this most worthy of all worthy causes.
We only need 60 fellow Cheap Trick fans to purchase a shirt or one really rich Cheap Trick fan to purchase all sixty (you save on shipping). We don't care how the numbers add up. We are pleading with you to help us find the answer to the question, "Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" Won't you please help us?
"Why Isn't Cheap Trick in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" shirts are $29.99 + shipping with $20 of each sale going directly to purchasing the advertisement. Wear the slogan on your chest and help us put it in the paper. What is NOT to like. Do it. Do it. Do it. This is the year. Thanking you in advance, Colin Gawel
