Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

When I heard for the first time "Strange kind of woman" of Deep Purple I was totally blown away... I was just 9 years old, then I fell in love whit hard rock in the seventies until the first album of Iron Maiden.... I think I bought then every metal records I was able to purchase... I love Metal because of its inner strenght!

How and when did you become a collector?
