You never know where rock'n'roll will take you...We met quite late on, just before I left school. After realising the bleep-bleep of synth music wasn't for me (although I still proudly own a cheesy keytar) the boys decided we were starting a rock band. Being as how I didn't get on with string instruments, it was the drums for me. Heh, those early days of pushing the kit in a shopping trolley to the rehearsal room! And throwing up over the kit playing Slayer's South of Heaven with a…See More

Maiden, Anthrax, Wildhearts, Queensryche, AC/DC, Slayer, Alice in Chains, Heaven and Hell, Chickenfoot, Cream, Faith No More, Rush, Megadeth, BB King, Philip Sayce, almost everyone except Metallica basically – I just don't get Metallica...
Welcome Martyn - and agreed re: Metallica. Early stuff is cool, but they've ridden a formula for a long, long time in my opinion. And I do love me some Wildhearts - one of the finest live bands I've ever seen.

"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"
"Harry, I was moved to buy that song based upon your post. And Anna, it is WAY cool to meet Mr. Nesmith. In all of my readings, he was very reclusive and didn't make public appearances...and damn sure didn't reaffirm his former…"
"......hey Eddie....I hope we don't crash cuz (Stan breaks into song...) "I Wanna Go Back!"......you know what I mean pal....I need the plane to "Take Me Home Tonight!" (rim shot.....tip your bartenders..)"
So Mike Nesmith. Yeah. WTF, right? Private, reclusive, mysterious for many years. A couple of years back, he got on Facebook and he posts long, winding tales about himself, his dogs, his home, his past, and a really lovely Mother's Day post last weekend. Photos go up. The whole thing. It's like he disappeared and then came back on his own terms. I didn't know how to take it. I'm a huge Monkees fan, no doubt. And, being a woman/girl of a certain age, I have a favorite and that favorite is Mike.…See More
