I may not look it, but I'm old and I like metal. I can remember seeing Metallica with Cliff Burton. I can remember seeing Slayer before Dave Lombardo quit the first time. I can remember when referring to Corrosion of Conformity as C.O.C. meant the same thing. The 3/4-sleeve Powerslave tour shirt I haven't sold on eBay (yet) was actually bought at an Iron Maiden show promoting the Powerslave album.

It may seem like I'm trying to score cred points or whatever, when in reality, I'm just letting you know that I've been a huge music geek since I was a kid. I also love my music loud and noisy. I quite enjoy all sorts of other styles of music, which probably explains what I'm doing here. And someone once told me I'm a pretty decent writer. What a freak! Who knows where that person is now? Wherever they are, they're probably laughing at Heisel, Karan and their hair shirts. If you read other print magazines like Decibel, Terrorizer, Metal Hammer and Rock Sound, you might recognize my name. If you use the Internet for something other than porn, I also contribute at www.hellbound.ca and co-host a radio with loose ties to the site.

What else? I have an 8-year-old son who loves skateboarding, longboarding, Sum 41 and the Norwegian black metal band, Immortal. I've taken him to the Warped Tour the last two years and this year he fashioned his hair into a pink mohawk. He's probably way more interesting than I am.
