Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

A cousin gave me a cassette back in 1983 and inside there were two Krokus songs (do you remember Tokyo nights??). That was it. Next month i bought Ozzy's Bark at the moon and ACDC's Flick of the switch in cassettes!

How and when did you become a collector?

Only other fellow collectors can understand why i like it! I collect music since 1984. The same old feeling keeps on and on with every new item in my collection.

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I used to collect vinyl. Now i find CDs more convenient.

Which styles do you collect?

Everything that is real and honest! Could be Heavy Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Southern, Country Rock, even some Soul, Funk, Blues, i mean whatever...

How big is your collection?

Over 3,500 cds and 1,500 vinyls.

Where do you buy?

I don\'t sell. I buy in local stores in my city - brand new or second hand - i buy from internet sites, i trade with fellow traders from several sites and groups.

Your favourite records (by heart or value):

very tuff task, so i'd better list some albums i really loved for some reason:
1.Twisted Sister-Stay hungry (my all-time favorite band)
2.AC/DC-Back in black (the perfect -hard rock with guts- album)
3.Wishbone Ash-Argus (in my opinion epic started here long before rainbow)
4.Journey-Frontiers (i always loved aor too!)
5.Eagles-The Eagles (try to drive with this)
6.Fates Warning-Parallels (perfect symmetry between melody and strenght)
7.Black Sabbath-Black Sabbath (those bells...)
8.Rush-Caress of steel (they always blowed my brains)
9.Lynyrd Skynyrd-Pronounced... (freedom)
10.Whitesnake-Slide it in (their best ever)

Do you trade / buy / sell?

Tradind of CDRs with art would be nice also!

Any famous last words?

Really interesting fellowship!!!! Keep on working!
