San Jose, Calif., -- The Enter Music Network, (EMN), recently launched as the first niche, drum industry ad/marketing network, has expanded internationally through a percussive partnership with IndianDrummer.com. The addition of IndianDrummer.com, the premiere South Asian drumming web site, enables the EMN to capitalize on the far East drumming market. The alliance benefits Indian Drummer since it is extremely receptive to bringing networks like the EMN into the region.

"It helps our advertisers run campaigns with reach into a market that will be a significant source of future growth for music products manufacturers. The Indiandrummer.com development team has a great site and great plans for growth as well."

Hood noted several reasons that  Indian Drummer is significant to EMN  Indian Drummer is ideally positioned for growth due to its focus on rock and heavy music. The Indian audience, more than in many South Asian countries, is receptive to band-based rock. And, with hundreds of millions of English speakers in the far East, it is a natural market for North American, European, and Japanese music product companies.

Amy WInehouse found Dead

By Geek Myth
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment at 4:05pm GMT.  While the cause of death is unknown, the Rehab singer had been struggling with alcohol and drug addiction for many years.
Last month Winehouse cancelled her tour after forgetting the words and being booed off stage at a show in Serbia.
Winehouse shot to stardom with her album Back to Black, which featured the aforementioned Rehab, You Know I'm no Good, and Love is a Losing Game.  In 2008 she won 3 Grammy awards, including Record of the Year and Best Pop Female Vocal Performance.  But her frequent public drunken inebriation was getting her just as much attention as her music.
At the time of her death Winehouse was working on a follow up to Back to Black, but the progress was slow going.  Her last release was a cover of Lesley Gore's It's My Party for a Quincy Jones tribute album.  Amy Winehouse was 27 years old at the time of her death.
