Old School Metalhead - listening since 1984. I love it all from the hairiest of Hair Metal to the deadliest of Death Metal. Some favorites include King Diamond, Dokken, Symphony X, Pagan's Mind, Opeth, Crimson Glory.

  • Sorry to hear about Pat’s passing. Was lucky enough to see him this summer with Mr. Big. Thought very cool that they brought him along. They said no man left behind!
