LAST UPDATE

2/17/02 More sad news this update:
PAUL BALOFF (April 25th, 1960 - February 2nd, 2002)
Original EXODUS frontman Paul Baloff passed away just before noon on February 2nd, 2002 at the age of 41. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Paul. You will live in our hearts forever. RIP.

-Small upgrade on the Sardonyx page with a couple new photos, including a picture of myself on stage with the band.
-Added some photos to the KISS CD page and added the KISS bootleg section. Also, finally added some KISS ALIVE facts.
Will eventually get to the rest of their albums.
-Plenty of new cds added. As usual, all new discs marked with *NEW*

For a more detailed update list and a list of past updates, click here.

Welcome to my cd gallery, where I have listed and commented on every cd I own. None of these, unless noted in a very few instances, are CDR copies. All are originals. I am quite anal about my collection, so unless you see it on my trade page, chances are I won't part with it. This is MY collection, and is not necessarily meant to be an all exclusive discography on every band, although in some cases it may be.

OK, I know, there are some non-metal discs in this list. So-what!!!
Sometimes I dig the Blues, somtimes I enjoy some old progressive rock like Yes & Genesis and...gasp!..sometimes even some Gospel music like Keith Green. Many metal bands were inspired by these artists. Variety is the spice of life, right!? Also I realize that by today's standards bands like Thin Lizzy and Aersomith are considered hard rock rather than heavy metal, but in the 70's these bands were heavy metal and were also the inspiration for many more modern metal bands.

Also, I don't really care if you don't like so-called "poser" bands like Slaughter and Cinderella or not. If you don't like them, and you only like the heavier stuff, then so be it, this is not your page, it's mine. So, please do not waste your time sending me insipid emails about how this band "sucks" or that band is for "posers," as I really don't care.

So, I hope you enjoy checking out my collection. Feel free to comment. I'm always interested in new bands, so if you know of a disc or band that I might like, let me know about it.

Also below, find a list of my favorite bands, discs, etc. Enjoy!

Check here for a list of Frequently Asked Questions

FAVORITE EVERYTHING...

Current Playlist:
(OK, this is a new section I will try to change monthly, but I have to say that I listen to music all day every day, so this list is actually cds that get played several times in that month. I actually bring 15 different discs to work with me every day; and that does not include what I listen to in my car and at home. For a day by day playlist, click here. Man, talk about anal!)

Top 30 Favorite Bands
(Actually, 50 would have been more feasable, so there are a few bands that are left out that could have been on this list on any given day. For a more complete list, see my CD list. Also, besides the top five or so being my absolute favorites, there is really no order to this list.)
