I became a Heavy Metal musician at an early age for the love of Rock N' Roll, THEN for the women, which has always gotten me into massive amounts of trouble. I've always had this irresistable attraction to psychologically unstable women!
They are like a box o' Chocolates - You never know what you're gonna get!
Sometimes Cherries.... sometimes Nuts........
When you have a pure love for gut-grinding, gritty guitars - then add equal parts absolute addiction to attractive, aero-naughty Angels of the Aisles - you not only feel indestructable, but care even less about the consequences.
You know the old saying - "If you remember the 1980's - You weren't really there!!!".
Eventually, the bands became too much of a hassle, but chasing women in the same ol' haunts still remained the favorite pastime. Old habits die hard - even harder with a drunken monkey swinging from your neck.
The bullets I dodged before I gave up alcohol were trivial compared to the bullets I've been dodging since..............
