Huey Freeman of Illinois' Herald & Review reports:

Every band would love to have fans half as dedicated as Lynne and Tyler Clark.

In recent weeks, they have been running around town, hanging posters at stores and handing out stickers promoting "P.O.D. Greatest Hits", the latest CD by their favorite rockers.
