    So I went home to Phoenix for Thanksgiving and naturally my mom just HAS to pull out the old photo albums of us as kids. Thumbing through, I spot myself about 10 or 11 years old in 1981 sporting a Killer's Tour Maiden shirt.

    I'm proudly displaying my new Atari game "Pitfall" There's also a pic of me and my buddy (also in a Maiden shirt) standing next to the TV displaying our "High Score). Freakin hysterical. Anyone else with some ridiculously old photos of themselves "Uppin the Irons"???

    Hee hee, I think we all had the same wardrobe in our "early days"! It's so funny to be reminded that everybody used to tuck in their shirts! :lol: Fun pics! I have a picture somewhere at my Mom's house of me on crutches with a cast up to my knee and a wicked drawing of the # of the Beast Eddie on the whole front of it that a friend drew. It went over really well with all my school teachers. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Yea, I hear ya. In 6th grade I got expelled from school for the day because of my Killers shirt. Basically sent home for it... A nice, free day off as I recall.

    Years later, I had an incident with my father tearing an Exodus shirt right off my back cause he didn't agree with it's gruesome imagery. I had to sew it back together... wore it for many years in that condition.

    I had to put duct tape over my METAL UP YOUR ASS Metallica t-shirt once in high school. Wore it a bunch of times before my English teacher finally noticed it. :lol:

    My brother used to wear Megadeth shirts to school just to piss off his overly religious history teacher. :lol: I got bollocked at PE twice for wearing metal shirts - one was a King Nothing shirt and the other said "We came, we saw, we got pissed at Donington!" :cool: :headbang:

    It's the combination with the blue eyeshadow...and it's that frosty pale pink shimmery thing. The girls know what I'm talking about :)

    Thankfully, from Maiden, Priest, Dio and Ozzy, I moved on to Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Destruction, ect... So I don't have to worry about pictures of me in makeup surfacing! Being an angst-ridden youth in the late 80s, I detested all poofy hair rock. Which was why No Prayer was such a let down for me. Their whole idea of "stripped down, back to basics rock and roll" was NOT why I liked Maiden in the first place. And with Adrian gone, I was sure it was the beginning of the end...

    *sigh*

    As do I. Somewhere somebody has a highschool pic of me with a particular style of hair that only a half can of Aquanet can accomplish. Hopefully it will never surface...:rolleyes:
