A list of 27 things John The Drummer related!
- Things you may know about me
- Things you may not know about me
- Things you may not give a shit about
- Pointless trivia about me

1. I drive a mini-van. It was the best thing I could find at the time for hauling drums.

2. I am 25 and still live with my dad. I don't make enough to move out, and having a free practice space is great to have!

3. I have the worst luck with cars. My first vehicle (Ford Escort) had a lot of engine issues, my second car (Dodge something or other) went up in flames the night before I opened for Exodus, and my current vehicle, Dodge Caravan, has had its transmission changed and dies when in traffic.

4. I hate being called a Metalhead and being grouped in with the "Metal crowd". I am more of a nerd/dork than a Metal guy.

5. I am a huge fan of wrestling. I've been to 2-3 house shows, Monday Night Raw, and WrestleMania XIX. Also met Scotty 2 Hotty, Ric Flair, and Stacy Keibler when I won backstage passes!

6. The first time I "Marked Out" was when Kevin Nash beat Goldberg for the WCW World Heavyweight Title.

7. I remember when MTV played Music Videos.... and when MTV2 played Music Videos 24/7.

8. I work at an automotive parts store, yet I barely know jack shit about cars :)

9. I have never done a single drug (besides prescribed things) and plan on keeping it that way.

10. I have gone over a year without tasting a single drop of booze.

11. I wasn't always a drummer. I started out on Guitar back when I was in 8th grade. I joined a band, my amp died, our drummer quit, and our lead guitarist TOLD me to be the drummer... so I got a drum set and became the drummer. That guitarist and I are now "enemies" and he plays drums too. Funny how things work out.

12. Jeff Jarrett came to the store I currently work at for an autograph session many years ago when he was still in the WWF.... I was too nervous and starstruck and didn't meet him, but got my action figure of him autographed!

13. I weigh 145lbs and am 5'9".... I weighed 160lbs when I was in 6th grade...

14. In relation to the post above, I broke my arm in the summer between 5th-6th grade from getting my shoe caught in in my bicycle's kick stand and getting thrown off from the momentum... that's how I gained so much weight.

15. I have a very huge fear of needles... the sight of a needle makes me go numb... I also have 5 tattoos.

16. My tattoos that I have (in order that I got them): 1. Soulfly symbol ; 2. A viking head (taken from an Ensiferum hoodie) ; 3. A sword with lyrics from "Heaven & Hell" around it ; 4. Thor's hammer ; 5. Borknagar dragon symbol (connected to the hammer).

17. My Grandpa is 100% Norwegian and very well known in the in-door soccer and skiing cirlces. He won a Ski Jumping Championship in 1955, and competed in the Olympics sometime between 1956 and 1960.

18. I don't enjoy playing video games as much as I like watching them. I believe this was gained from back when I was a kid & my brother used to bring his NES (Regular Nintendo as we called it) into my room every Christmas Eve and would play Super Mario Bros 3 while I watched. Since then I have just enjoyed watching others play.

19. Many people ask me if I am a Pantera fan, or just like trolling them. I honestly have never been into them very much.... but once I found 80's Pantera it was love at first sight. :lol:

20. The first two songs that I strongly remember rocking out to as a young child were "Man on the Silver Mountain" by Rainbow and "Love Bites" by Judas Priest. :rocker:

21. I really hate Wyoming.... drove through 80% of it West to East, then 100% of it South to North on my bands tour this past Summer. I feel bad for anyone who lives there.

22. I once drunk dialed a radio show and won tickets to see High On Fire, but thanks to my friends yelling "YOU WON PANTERA TICKETS!!?!?!" in the background, the radio station hung up on me.

23. At Maryland Deathfest 2012 my friends and I were drinking in our hotel room with a couple guys from Horna, I yelled "PANTURRRRUH", and Infection (guitarist) said with a very straight face "You do not disrespect Pantera."

24. Also at MDF, I almost got into a fight with a guitarist from Demigod. He was drunkenly, and violently, smashing into me during Autopsy. I kept pushing him away, but he kept coming back twice as hard....

25. My favorite video game series' are Megaman, Metal Gear Solid, GTA, Mortal Kombat, and Legend of Zelda.

26. My high school band never opened for any big named bands (supposed to play with Nuclear Assault, but they cancelled), but since joining my band Funeral Age in 2006 (and also my former side project, Divinorum) I have opened for...

27. I was really great internet friends with Kurt Struebing of the legendary underground band NME. He was [obviously] from here in Seattle, but I never met him in person, we talked a lot online though and he helped me so much when I was starting out as a musician. Very sad that I never met him in person before his death.

More commonalities! I've worked at Napa since 2008. I'll be 24 in April, live at home with my Mom, don't make enough to move out & even if I did, I'd stick around because she's on a fixed income & retired/disabled. And hey, it's nice to meet a fellow Norwegian! The other 3/4 of me is Irish and German.

And as far as your Caravan goes, it just dies while sitting idly at a red light? Has it thrown a check engine light? If so, you may be in severe need of a tune up. I'd also consider testing the alternator to make sure it's outputting the correct amount of voltage.

Haha, that's awesome! :rocker: . My other 3/4 is just a giant mess of German, Dutch, French... I don't even know what else haha.

It never seems to die when I am at a red light, mainly just in stop and go traffic on the freeway, no check engine light, either. It happened about a year or two ago, took it to a shop, they said it could be the fuel injectors, or a number of other things, but they won't know until it dies out completely. Checked my battery and alternator recently and both had a normal reading.

Kevin Nash beating Goldberg is still a sore spot for me. Probably the biggest moment for me in wrestling as a kid, I WORSHIPPED Goldberg.

I think the main problem with your van is that it's a van.

What year is this Caravan? I used to drive a Caravan for work and I got damn good at starting it again after it stalled... Mechanics couldn't find anything wrong with it... it was a '94 though, so fucking old -- even back when I drove it in like 2006. But this thing would only stall when I was going like 20ish Km/h... which kind of sounds like your beast too.

It's a 1999, so it definitely has some miles on it. As Adamclark said... it's a van :lol: . I want to run it until it runs no more... which may be sooner than later

[Q=dcmetal108;554745]The moment that killed WCW.[/QUOTE]

I wouldn't say that. I'd say it was what happened on Nitro the following week (the fingerpoke of doom) that did it.

Ha, I thought I was the only one. I do like playing video games, but I honestly think I prefer watching them.

Dan's told about that a few times and it never fails to make me laugh. :lol:

You also have a couple years on me, brah. :finger:. At least I'm in a band with your BF.

Don't get me wrong, I do love me some good video game playing, but lately games just haven't been as enjoyable as they used to be.... plus I have a really short attention span, so watching little reviews or glitch vids of numerous different games is just far more enjoyable.

Hahahaha, it's such a great story. Those guys were TRASHED :lol:

The moment that killed WCW.

That was the best thing WCW ever did..... I hated Goldberg with a passion, I just wish they would have had Nash win straight up instead of cheating. It's stupid to have someone go undefeated that long, and why? Because he had three necks? I never understood the hype about him

I loved the streak, still do. It works rarely, but in that instance, it REALLY worked. Nash couldn't have won straight. A clean victory would have gone completely against Goldberg's character, and Nash wasn't big enough or good enough in the ring for it to be believeable that he could take Goldberg out. It made MUCH more sense for the nWo to do what they did. Worked for Nash's character, worked for the stable, and worked for Goldberg's angle.

I was a HUGE Kevin Nash and Wolfpac fanboy, so seeing (er... rather, hearing) him beat "The Unstoppable" Goldberg, cheating or not, was amazing!

You're right about the storyline stuff like I said I just hated the whole undefeated thing what was it up to like 170-something? Ridiculous. And the whole being escorted by security from backstage to the front was just too much for me. Then again I always watched WWF much more than WCW anyways, but he was one of the reasons why. At least he was the reason for the creation of Gilberg haha
