    I was full of Hard ROck and Heavy Metal in the 9th with:





    (I think I must have had about 15 Maiden T-Shirts, mailordered out of those metal mags)





    I also loved these guys:



    But when I saw them on tour they were total crap. They were so wasted they hardly even played. It sounded like a bunch of out of tune noise. After that I dumped everything Cru related.

    By 10th grade it was full on Metal going to school with these guys:



    worshipping this local East Bay act (who actually moved up here from LA):



    While getting into silly arguments about which of these was heaier:



    versus



    Being total homers my friends and I would always pick Exodus. Besides, didn't Slayer wear make-up? Posers! Looking back, Slayer was much MUCH heavier, and that first Exodus album had some of the shittiest production ever!

    Of course, I also had deep appreciation of the finest European metal:



    These guys actually played one of the worst shows I've ever seen in SF. They were either completely drunk off their ass or actually couldn't really play their instruments. I still don't know which one was right to this day.



    This expanded into all kinds of underground and worldwide heavy metal as I use to stay up all night listening to Ron Quintana's metal show on KUSF. Use to trade demo tapes and live shows and the whole bit around the world. Was in a metal band, had a little one issue fanzine, got thanked on a Voivod and a Destruction LP!!!!
