Default Hello from Ohio!!

Greetings to my fellow Saxon fans!! I live in the Northeastern part of Ohio near the PA border, not too far from Youngstown/Warren. I'm a fan of all eighties metal, but prefer the bands that were especially melodic with good singers, lyrics that meant something, and, most of all, virtuosic lead guitars. My favorite metal includes Yngwie Malmsteen, Michael Schenker Group, Saxon (of course!!), Krokus, Judas Priest, Dokken, Alcatrazz, Van Halen, Winger, Scorpions. I also enjoy the instrumental guitars: Vinnie Moore, Tony MacAlpine, Satriani. Add in a little eighties Christian metal: Stryper, Petra, Angelica, Whitecross, and a little classical: Wagner, Stravinsky, J.S. Bach, and you have my listening habits!! If I can't put a tape or CD in, I usuallly opt for a classic rock station. I absolutely hate rap and hip-hop with a passion. As far as Alternative, I just think that it sucks.

Where did I first encounter Saxon?? VH1. The video for Denim and Leather. Summer 1988. I wanted to hear more of Saxon every time I saw this video.

Where was I in '79?? Second and Third Grade. I knew who KISS, Molley Hatchet, and Lynyrd Skynyrd were, and thought my classmates has some pretty cool t-shirts. I was wearing denim, in the form of my blue jeans, and thought those older kids who were also wearing leather were pretty cool!!! I remember seeing Motorhead backpatches, and wondering what Motorhead was, LOL!!!

Saxon Rules!!!! Joe in Ohio

Likewise!! I was enjoying Headhunter earlier today, as I headed home from work. Nothing like hearing Eat the Rich after a hard day at the office!!
