In which case you gotta start using my pseudonym. I'm applying for jobs.

Rob Halford. Lemmy. Geddy Lee. Geoff Tate. Ronnie James Dio. Bruce Dickinson. The Ozzman Himself.

It goes without saying that American Idol is a colossal waste of time.

Seeing Opeth tomorrow night. A preview for the uninitiated.

Damn my current state of (un)employment. How many shows can I afford to go to? Heaven & Hell and Queensryche are both in town this summer! (Tentatively passes the cup... ;) )

Can so-called "death metal" cross over and have mainstream appeal? Opeth did it. And DEATH can do it, too!

Check out the last track "Flesh and the power it holds" from 1998's Perserverance album. Prog metal rules!!

That song takes me right back to my HS Senior year. Maiden and Priest had emerged, but Metallica, Slayer et al hadn't yet. Interesting transitional time.

Opeth was great Saturday night. Steve, you a fan? I remember perusing your website and reading some negative comments about them, but it's been a while so my memory may be faulty. They're not for everyone, but I'm really digging their latest album.

The audience was mostly 30's-40's.
