    The fact I can name several bands from Sweden off the top of my head attests to that. Before I got into Euro metal I could only name one Swedish act which was ABBA. I have to give that song you posted the highest compliment I can give...........I gave it a like on YouTube!! That song was...

    Good stuff there Kevin. Metal is such a broad genre that it is almost hard to believe. From that real harsh, heavy material to Folk/Celtic metal the diversity within the genre is incredible. That probably explains why there are so many subgenres in Metal. Some of my favorite groups use...

    Talk about not being able to tell a book by its cover, I totally had Kevin pegged as a Death Metal/Black Metal fan. You just never can tell! I just read that the album Rumors by Fleetwood Mac reached #7 on the Billboard 200 album chart and Dreams got to #12 on their Hot 100 singles chart...

    2020 RIP Thread

    That is too bad about Matt Blair. They have not released the cause of death but I read he had been suffering from Dementia like so many recently passed athletes. I had to look up what his RC was since I surprisingly did not know. Turns out it was a 1977 Topps. For some odd reason I knew...

    Between Katester's Don Diablo and my Delain and Within Temptation, Dutch acts sem to be getting a lot of pub on this topic. Is this site coming out of The Netherlands? LOL

    What's on your music playlist?

    You could have given me an infinate number of guesses of that top rated song and I'd never come up with that one!! If you told me it was a Santana song I would have definately thought Black Magic Woman was the answer. Interesting music genres of choice for members here so far. Given this...

    2020 RIP Thread

    Everyone used to wear pads on their arms back then. I can't believe no one does it now! I used to get these horrible hematomas on my forearms from catching the edges of opponents shoulder pads and those hurt like a mother! Once I started using forearm pads that cured that and you could...

    2020 RIP Thread

    I meant to post about that yesterday and forgot. The article I read said he died from complications of Covid-19. With the flurry of HOFers who have passed away recently Dean is the first I have read about passing away from the virus. The Niners are wearing a helemt decal with his number...

    What's on your music playlist?

    Lacuna Coil is a Gothic Metal band from Italy that is definately an artist on my playlist. At least 3 of their songs wuld be in my top 100 songs of all time. My Spirit was a tribute to their friend Peter Steele the frontman of Type O Negative when he passed away in his late 40s. This...

    What's on your music playlist?

    OK I checked out "Copperhead Road" and am pretty sure I've heard the song at least once before but had no idea there was a video for it. My brother lived in backwoods Alabama for a few years and he always said he lived on Copperhead Road and used to drop lyrics from that song constantly. I...

    What's on your music playlist?

    My brother always raves about Copperhead Road by Steve Earle back in the day. I know the artist but I'm not that familiar with that song so I'll check it out tomorrrow. Mike since you are our resident Red Dirt expert can you tell me is there more talent onstage or offstage in this video...

    What's on your music playlist?

    I have to admit I'm jealous as I always wanted to see them live. They played at the Rochester NY jazz fest in 2008 (that concert is all over YouTube) where my brother lives and I had no idea they were there! Rochester is only three hours from me and I found out they were there a week too late...

    What's on your music playlist?

    I had never heard of that song or artist until your post. Not knowing that song was not surprisng but not ever hearing of the artist was really surprising. Turns out he died of a heart attack in 1964 at the age of 27, thus joining the tragic 27 Club. I was wondering if you remembered...

    What's on your music playlist?

    Damn! Now I'm really feeling old! I think a lot of my disdain for today's popular music has to do with the execution of the songs and how they are arranged. When some of the artists that I like cover some of those pop songs that I can't stand, I suddenly realize that the songs are not...

    How do you sort your cards? What's the best way to share a trade list?

    Because of the sheer number of cards I have, I am a set builder out of neccessity. So most of my cards are in year order and number order. If a card is $10 or more or a prominent RC, I put it in a top loader and soft sleeve. Some stars I have sorted by player for player collectors but I am...
