Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

About when I was 13. I used to spend my summer holidays in a small village in Elba island and there I had a real good friend.One summer he let me hear at Scorpions "Black Out"....and then there was love.

How and when did you become a collector?

After that summer I bought my first record ( Helloween "Walls of Jericho" ): I've always preferred vinyls to Cd's.Only few time ago I started buying Cd's and only cause actual releases are only issued on Cd fromat. I don't know why, I always loved vinyls, I know that I love them and that's it!!!

What kind of stuff do you collect?

I collect vinyls - demos - cd's ( only a few ).

Which styles do you collect?

I'm interested into all kinds of music which can move me ( from classic music through pop - jazz - blues - electro/ambient till heavy metal ).Anycase my first and neverending love is for Heavy metal ( from punk to black metal ).

How big is your collection?

I have about: 35 CD's 800 demos ( 700 from Italian bands - 100 from foreign bands: ALL ARE ORIGINAL COPIES) 3.000 vintls and something more
