Iron Maiden, Cinderella, and Boris

Howdy, folks. I hope and trust you've all been well.

I have a column today in Ann Arbor's facsimile of a city newspaper, in which I discuss talking with my kids about Iron Maiden and then, unfortunately, hair metal. If anybody's interested, check it out: http://www.annarbor.com/entertainmen...and-80s-music/

In other news, I'm going to see Boris tonight in Detroit.

It makes me sick how much better you are at writing than I'll ever be. Great column, man. Keep 'em coming.

The reason everyone thought hair metal sucked is because they were all third rate knock-off's of Van Halen. Androgeny(sp?) might have a hand in it, but it was ultimately a small piece of the puzzle. David Lee Roth was of course one of the best frontmen of all time, but he wore some downright gay shit. That's not an insult, it's the truth. Richard Simmons, Liberace, Freddy Mercury and Tom Cruise would look at one of his typical outfits of the 80's and exclaim "Jesus cum-guzzling christ that's gay!" But I digress.

The hairbands sucked not only because, well...their music sucks, but they were all carbon copies of what came before. The lead singer was always doing something "outrageous" the guitarist was always a souless technical wizard who can tap six ways to sunday, it was all a formula, which like all formulas would get old very quickly. I guarantee that if tommorow the mainstream market flooded with Immortal and Bathory knockoff's people would get sick of that shit by the end of the year.

I also agree with kids being spiteful little poopnuggets who constantly contradict out of spite. In my not so educated opinion, there are two ways of dealing with this:

1) Come in the room dancing and lip-synching to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKDhRSShZkg

2) or they are clearly not feeling the sting of the pimp hand. You should do something about that.

I might be stupid but this is really a joke, right? Or should I say lampoon?

Well written. Ann Arbor is a great place, btw, but I may be a little biased.

BTW, Scott, a good friend of mine is moving to Ann Arbor. If I'm ever in the neighborhood, let's grab a beer
