I'm often told I'm 'obsessed' with Led Zeppelin..and i dont suppose my user name really helps...
I often think that getting to know me is a bit like having sex with your clothes on. You can do it, but it is going to take a fair bit of time and effort...
Like everyone else on ultimate GUITAR i play....guitar!
Living in Brisbane (Australia), which is convenient, cos I'm right near the entertainment centre for all concerts going on!
Not that many bands come to brisbane though! theyre usually either absolute legends doing world tours, or washed up losers looking to make a better super fund for themselves...
or just emo rejects trying to get some 'street cred'...which is actually kind of counter-productive really...being in an emo band....
