Tell the band a little about yourself, and what your first Riot experience was. For me, I passed the Thundersteel album (ok, cassette) countless time the record shop (when they existed!)... I finally purchased and WOW. Amazing album, amazing musicianship, top notch songs and solos - just an all around superb album. I ventured from there picking up their older stuff and have kept up with the bands ever since. Oh, and as far as me, I'm Deron - I run UltimateMetal.com. Been listening to all forms of Metal since around 83-84 - proud to be old school but also keep up with the newer styles of Metal as well And you?
