58. I am still a 'Sryche fan, as well as Rush,
Edited on Thu Dec-14-06 10:24 AM by Zodiak Ironfist
Maiden, etc. I span the genre, but my dearest love is with the death and thrash metal. I love the guitar work more than anything. I was the first kid on my block to get ahold of Slayer, Metallica, Celtic Frost, Bathory etc.

My greatest 80's moment was opening up for Pantera back when they were a hair band. They were local in my area. Those guys were some serious drunks, but they were fun to hang with and learn a few tricks on our instruments.

Take a look on my myspace account to learn more about me and my music thing.

But you are kindred in more than just music and age. From what I gather, you are also a libertarian-populist Democrat, as well. Am I wrong?
