Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

My first contact with rock´n´roll did happen in 1983, when I was a seven years old kid and KISS did their last gigs with make-up here in Brasil. One year later one cousin of mine gave me two posters, AC/DC and The Police. Thereafter in 1985 we had the first edition of now famous event Rock in Rio Festival. It was totally mindblowing for me to see AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions and Whitesnake live on TV for the very first time, a life-changing experience.

How and when did you become a collector?

If you mean "collector" as anyone who takes different versions of the same album, or spent lots of money on a rarity (even disliking the music), then I´m out. Music is what matters, so I only take what I want to hear, that´s my standard. There´s no point in accumulating thousands of records on shelves for a "status" only. Anyways, my first LP was AC/DC´s "For those about to rock" as anniversary gift from my father in 1985. But I started buying my own in the end of 1988.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

Mainly vinyl, the perfect shape. CDs, tapes and videos are fine too.

Which styles do you collect?

Mostly 70s and 80s hard rock/heavy metal (British Rock, NWOBHM, US Metal, Europeans, etc). I also like some extreme metal, but traditionals are what I enjoy most.

How big is your collection?

Around 500 LPs and 100 CDs.

Where do you buy?

Second hand stores, fairs, etc.
