The HairBands and MetalBoys were hot during my adolescence in the 80's. Accordingly, an old friend wrote to ask why I hadn't blogged about the death of metal guitar legend "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott of Pantera. The reason is simple. I was never a great metal aficionado. I pretty much zoomed from top 40 pop to heavy cool college stuff like REM and The Smiths. These days I enjoy a very eclectic mix of music with special affinity for electronica. What I recall about the old friend (and roommate) is that he was a big fan of the band W.A.S.P. and often had one of their albums, featuring a cover of a codpiece with a buzzsaw emerging from it, laying about the dorm room. I recall the name of the album, but it is unfortunately unsuitable for the blog's audience.
