[VICTIM OF METAL] Thursday, September 04, 2008 5:52:44 PM
I got it! Back then we weren't knee deep in shit metal. Back then we weren't overflowing with metal music that just wasn't good! Nowadays there's so much out there, breaking metal into different groups. Thrash,hardcore punk, British, groove metal, death metal, speed metal, black metal.
Back then, and i'm guessin' Ron ment late 70's early 80's we only had a handful or more of so called metal bands that where good. Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Scorpions, etc.(sorry if i left anyone out) So yea, they where the shit. They where the shit when the road was still dirt. They not only paved the way, they took all the negative heat in the begining of this movement... And i loved being part of it...

Hell yeah they are!!
I apologize for that not being conveyed in my post. After re-reading it I can see where you might get the impression that I don't think they're STILL THE SHIT!! That (of course) is NOT true.
THEY WERE, ARE, AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE SHIT!!! I still ask though, can a person be a fan of one and not the other?
