I have varied musical tastes, I can just about stand anything but country and rap. I need a guitar oriented band, or track.
I grew up on the metal explosion NWOBHM and the hair bands of the 80's, in the mid to late 70's I was into Aerosmith, Kiss, and Ted Nugent.
Then I took a step back to Jimi Hendrix, wow. But I guess my first experience was Ace Frehley of KISS, it was loud and annoyed parents. I was just the right age to eat up that comic book type entertainment that seems all the new bands have their own gimmick. They are wearing make up again.
Longtime Slayer fan, love the aggression, seen them many times, I always just go when I have the chance.
I just wanted to play at that point, I had no idea of music and theory, none of that just the NOISE! LOUD! To me it screamed of Rebellion.
