    He's a good guy, super nice and was wearing all that crap as he had just performed with Alestorm. He always wears odd shit when his band performs. When I saw them in Toronto he was partially topless and wearing a homemade suit of 'armor' made out of metal album jackets...

    The first band they showed was Nightwish. Annette was a good first impression for most people, I should say.

    I expected a lot worse, tbh.

    Cruise was of course the best thing this year, just not as good as last year's.

    I'm sure he's great. I'm sure he's not even that stupid looking half the time, but that's what CNN chose to show. A lot. Good job, CNN.

    As someone who knows something about journalism, CNN is pretty much dogshit, just like all of the 24/7 "news" networks. However, CNN sickens me the most because they at one point had a high reputation that they ran through the dirt.

    CNN was the only 24/7 News network that actually gave 5 minutes of their precious time to devote to 70,000 Tons of Metal, and did an actual decent job showing the festival, the fans and the bands. I think they should get some credit based on that alone.

    FYI, on the CNN issue, this is an iReport - which means it's not a reporter doing the reporting. It's a regular individual like the rest of us, who signed up with CNN to do stuff like this, no journalism training required.

    Yes, correct... But I'll still take a decently done iReport story that actually has nice things to say about our "style" than something negative or nothing at all. :)

    I unfortunately didn't make it on last year's cruise. I had a blast on the cruise this year. I am so glad I went.

    Some vids from the Annihilator set are on the band's Facebook page via YouTube. Stellar!

    Because they have a section of their website dedicated to stories of personal importance to regular individuals?

    Whatever floats your boat, I guess. I don't hate newspapers for the cartoon section or the metro/opinion section.
