I was raised on Rock and Roll. The cool 50s and 60 stuff ranging from Elvis, Kingston Trio, Mamas and Papas to Jerry Lee Lewis. In Jr High I developed a critical Vitamin "M" deficiency which I self-medicated with huge doses of Led Zeppelin, Rush, Black Sabbath and Van Halen. Firmly hooked on Hard Rock and Metal, I quickly turned on to the "good stuff". Stuff like Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Krokus, Loudness, Fastway, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Metallica... Despite my addiction, I still managed to develope a wide and eclectic musical pallet. I like it all; Rock, Country, Western, Motown, Blues, Classical, Rap, Disco, Punk, Blue Grass, Techno, Tejano, Polka... If it has a beat and it's fun, I'll spin it. At least for a little while. But when my Vitamin "M" runs low, I've got to bang my head back into shape with a healthy does of Metal. ROCK-ON!
Your really you when you can be you when you don't have to be, when you shouldn't be, when you're all by your self, when you know, love and respect all that you are, but especially when you accept who you are not and have no regrets. You soul suffers, letting sadness and disrepair slip in, every time you stop loving all you are, every blessing you've received, every person you've met, every turn in the road, every twist of fate and every second of every of your life. Happiness is as easy as learning, sharing, loving and forgiving everything. Choose to reject and oppose hatred, oppression, hunger, desperation and fear at every opportunity. If you can be true to that, you may not be happy, but you'll likely have done something noteworthy with your life and you will have definitely lived a life worth living. Love and cherish who and what you are. Be true to yourself, who you want to and who were meant to be.
