Describe your way to Heavy Metal:

Since 11 years old. It was a super-cool surfer neighbor who asked to me: "You've got quite a good collection of rock bands, have you ever heard Black Sabbath?" ...I remember his wife warning him "Hey Armando! I don't think Juan's mom would like him hearing that kind of music". Gee! ...she was right. It changed my life forever! Still I keept beeing a good kid, Ja! Ja!

How and when did you become a collector?

By 9 years old i've already been collecting Cheap Trick, Boston, Triumph and other rock bands. I don't know, it was just came like a natural thing to me. My dad had an incredible huge collection of Rock, R&B, Pop & Oldies LPs, so I've been exposed to huge collections and lots of different styles of music since i can remember.
