Just want to take a few minutes to introduce myself. I'm 34 years old and been a life long fan of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, but I also like blues, Jazz and some Classical. I've been playing guitar since I was 14 and I'm a qualified music teachers so my taste can be varied. I will state that I can't stand hip hop and electronic crap that people call music.
The band to pop my musical cherry was Guns N Roses when I was at the tender age of 8. I'm sure I could have been 'normal' had I not been corrupted by these degenerates.
My top five favorite bands are GNR, Nightwish, Dream Theater, Metallica and Thin Lizzy. There are countless others, mostly from the 70s and 80s. Music took a major dive in the depression era of the 90s, and thanks to illegal (and legal) downloading and the death of the music studio system things have never been the same. There are some great bands out there, but they have little chance of getting the support they need to crack the mainstream and take their rightful place in the music world.
Well that's a bit of an introduction to me. I look forward to chatting with other members on various threads throughout this site. Hopefully we can introduce some new bands to each other.
