I have a few of his cds. I also bought a record of his, but I don't even have a way of listening to it. x3
Some country is alright, but I only say that because I'm so used to hearing it. Like, I would never listen to it on my own time but I suppose I don't mind hearing it while I'm at my grandparents' house. I just grew up associating it with them. *shrug*
Yeeesh. One band gets banned from playing in your state, and youre left with the other rejects? Awww you poor thing. (Avenged Sevenfold...no offense..but PEEEEYEWWW!) I guess im pretty fortunate to be near cities were good bands come and play. Sacramento isnt terribly far either. SF is infinitely better though. EVERYONE comes there. Its like "AAWWWWW YISSSS"
I heard Kenny was huge into muscle cars and bikes. (like hogs and choppers.) Apparently the former drummer of Type O, Sal Abruscato has a chopper shop or something and became a semi-hangout for some of the members. (Kenny)
Ive met quite a few musicians. One that actually nearly made me crap myself was Chuck Billy from Testament. I was working a tshirt booth at this metal event (benefit show for charity) All the sudden, i see Chuck Billy all kickin it and people just swarming around him. I look up and im all "OMMGHGGH HNNNNGH!" and run over there and go "omg omg omg hai! Big fan since i was a wee one! Suuuuup!" and hes like " Hai there! Omg where did you get that Testament patch?" (i was wearing my friend's denim thrash metal jacket) and im all "its not mine but im not sure where she got it!" He was all "wow thats...i havent seen that in like 20 years! thats old school!" and he signed it...right on the jacket. My friend who wasnt there at the time, was thrilled.
I never met him sadly. You wouldnt believe such a large guy was such a goddamn ninja! Ive met like, all the other members of the band but him. Josh (the keyboardist) was just walking down the street to enter the venue and im all "Hey mang! suuuuuup!" he stopped and said "yo! whats up!!" He was in a hurry though. The guitarist Kenny is...interesting...and a bit shouty! But he seemed really nice. I met Johnny the drummer at a Seventh Void (at the time, a side-project) show. He was awesome! Real friendly. In fact, id peg him as the "sanest" member. But no Pete sadly. He was a pretty big influential force with me. The things that man did with a bass guitar....woooow. Plus his voice. hnnngh.
I try not to get bummed when listening to them now but its kinda hard. Especially with certain songs.
Wow yer mum must be pretty cool. I love Type O Negative. Seen em twice. It was amazing. I wish i got to see them back in 90s but alas...♥♥♥♥ happens. My favorite song by them is probably 12 Black Rainbows.
I kinda lost in when Peter Steele died. On my birthday! wtf guys!?! Maaan....
