Hey pallies, likes here is some late breakin' Dino-news from our pallie Mr. Mark Heimback-Nielsen over at his "popculturefanboy" pad. Today is a very important day in Dino-history...this day, February 13, in the year of our Dino 1962 our great man said no to Capitol Records to renew his contract and moved over to his pallie frankie's new label Reprise.
Our Dino is always the man of action, always the man who lives life on his own terms, and by sayin' no to Capitol, he created his own production company, Claude Productions, and thus had the power to control his own destiny!
Thanks to Mr. Mark for showin' such Dino-love and sharin' this Dino-detail with us. To read his whole post, just click on the title of this Dino-gram. Pallies like Mr. Mark Heimback-Nielsen are helpin' others to gain Dino-knowledge and grow in their Dino-devotion.
I always loves to learn more Dino-history and spread it to others. Each Dino-detail helps us to know, love, and honor our Dino to the max!!!! Dino-thankfully, DMP
