Starting out young


I had a woman who was maybe in her late 50's come into my place of work (public library). She had a list of bands that her 13 year grandson was looking for and it was all metal. Some of the bands were not surprising as they were big names like Ozzy and Maiden. Then she got to Motorhead followed by Manowar, Testament and even Death. Now unfortunately we don't own any titles by those last three, but we do own several by the first three. Still it refreshing to hear of a teenager today with an interest in old metal. The only downside was Dragonforce were on the list too and what's worse is the library system I work for owns more Dragonforce titles than they do Motorhead discs.

Tell that lady to buy her kid the deluxe 2CD version of No Sleep Til Hammersmith. She won't regret it.

Warms my heart a little bit to know that teens are still looking for things like Death. Gives me hope.

VH-1 Classic and guitar hero have opened up the 80s door to a lot of people who otherwise never would have been exposed to it.

I think you should quit if they don't put the Dragonforce on the sale rack.
