Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

FROM THE LATE 7Os.i started with pirate radio stations that were playing hard rock(PURPLE,NAZARETH,SABBATH,HEEP,UFO)on medium waves.i bought sabbath and deep purple's best and amazed by the music.

How and when did you become a collector?

from early 90s.i collect LPs that i previously had in cassette format and any good record i did not owned.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

mostly vinyl LPs.i buy cds only for the obscure releases.

Which styles do you collect?

NWOBHM is my favourite because it has many hard rock influences but it is more powerful.i also like 70s hard rock,80s european metal and major us bands of 70s and 80s(not glam of course).
