Mexican Monarch Metal Brothers in Mexico City

Mexican Monarch Metal Brothers in Mexico City

The Mexican Monarch Metal Brothers in Mexico City. Jan 13. At 21:00 I went to meet Sara at a metal bar in Mexico City called Metal Brothers.  The website said there was no cover charge and stated that live bands play every night.  I was worried that it was going to be some lame ‘Cruise Ship’ band covering a version of ‘Hotel California’ for the eight-kajillianth time and fill me with regret. Nope! None of that at all…  Metal Brothers was...

Rock and Roll to the Rescue

Rock and Roll to the Rescue -The Rocco Valentino Live Transcript: friend and I were driving out in the bush one day and we decided we wanted to leave South Africa to go and see the world.  Both 21, listening to The Doors and doing a few other things.  Driving out there and we were deciding, “Well, where should we go?  Should we go to the States?  Should we go got Australia?” and we thought, “Australia is like South Africa. ...

Iron Maiden, Download Festival – Day 3

Iron Maiden, Download – Day 3. June 12 It was pouring rain when we left Dan and Emma’s house in Nottingham. Sunshine would be unreasonable at Downland Festival anyhow… Whatever… We were ready to get into it again!  We had garbage bags in our pockets for extra-dryness covering.  Dan and I jumped on the bus to take us to the festival.  To say traffic was backed up would be an understatement.  A thirty minute bus ride from Nottingham became two...

Black Sabbath, Download Festival – Day 2

Black Sabbath, Download – Day 2. June 11 Dan made breakfast for Emma and I and then Dan’s contact came through with two weekend passes for Download Festival that we could have for a £60 donation.  I sure wish that had happened yesterday before I blew £190 on my pass.  Then once Dan and I made it to the festival a girl was standing beside the box office to give away an extra weekend pass she had for free…. And,...

The crowd, the stage, and the hair. Wow, I love this place!

Musical Candy – The Camden Monarch

May 1 I had flown across two continents for it, just to be a part of this night… England.  London.  Camden.  The Monarch.  Metalworks. It would be old bag of tricks in a new shirt. *In retrospect, I can say for sure from the evening that my lifestyle does not permit me to own a white shirt. I met Mike just after 18:00 and we went to a small establishment called Spiritual Bar to drink beer and catch up.  Justin...

Kill ‘Em All

‘Kill ‘Em All’(1983) – Metallica

Kill ‘Em All (1983) – Metallica. James Hetfield – Rhythm Guitar and vocals Kirk Hammett – Lead Guitar Cliff Burton – Bass Lars Ulrich – Drums So, this album will certainly not be for everyone. I was not even for me up until a few months ago when I was really high in Guatemala and hanging out at a rock bar. I was with a Guatemalan, an American and the American’s Guatemalan wife, who co-owned the bar with him, and...
