Favorite bands :
I won't name them all, but: Metallica, Iron Maiden, Shadow's Fall, Trivium, Lamb of God, All That Remains, Machine Head, Pantera, Job for a Cowboy, Mastadon, Behemoth, Meshuggah, Opeth, Protest the Hero, Amon Armoth, Van Halen, ACDC, Led Zeppelin, Guns N Roses, Dethklok, Chimaria, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch (before they went gay with their 2nd album), Black Sabbath, Ozzy, a little Slipknot, a little Slayer, and that's about it for now
Favorite guitarists :
My all-time favorite guitarists is Randy Rhoads. Ever since I heard the opening riff to Crazy Train and especially the solo. He's what a true guitarest should be. Although I play nothing like him, he'll always be my idol. Every single time I hear Crazy Train's solo I get goosebumps, and anybody who can do that to even one person let alone millions is something special. I love Dimebag for his crushing groove riffs and his moving solo's. Phil Demmel from Machine Head has become a big influence to me recently. Both guitarists from Shadow's Fall and Lamb of God some of today's smartest riffers and song writers. Of course those guys from Metallica, and Iron Maiden are what got me into metal and music in the first place.
Favorite bassists :
What!? I'm a guitarest! Just Kidding :-) Probably Cliff Burton and Steve Harris
Favorite books :
The Darktower series by Stephen King was really good....haven't read for awhile though. The Alex Cross series by James Patterson has had it's ups and downs but I'll stay loyal to them till they're done.
Favorite tv :
Lost......yet I never watch them on TV, I just wait for the DVD's
Favorite movies :
Still a big fan of The Lord of the Rings movies. They make crappy movies nowadays. Anything that Seth Rogan ends up directeing or staring in is Gold in my book

I'm currently in the United States Air Force, have been for more then 7 years. I'd love to openly discuss what I do, but for the most part I can't :P
I'm 28 and live in Las Vegas, NV. I've been playing guitar for almost 7 years and been into Heavy Metal for the last 5+. I'm in a striving Metal band at the moment, but still need a lead guitarist. We have about 8-9 personal songs that are a mix of LoG, Machine Head, and a little Disturbed at times.
Don't EVER try to get me to change my tone. I WILL RIP YOUR BALLZ OFF!!! Don't ever tell me to scoop my mids or I will plant my boot in your Suck-Hole.
That being said, I'm actually a pretty peaceful person and love to joke around with my friends. Going out for an occasional drink is a great time as long as it's in good company, and I LUV the ladies, especially you Cougers out there...Grrrrrowl...
If anybody lives in Central Virginia and is interested in the kind of music I posted below, PM and maybe we could jam sometime
