    Favorite Genres:
    "Music": There's Good and there's Bad, and whatever genre it's supossedly in means nothing to my listening pleasure. Point being, I've let all the Skeletons out of my Musical Closet a long time ago. Examples: I truly like "Winger"... yes, the "She's only Seventeen" Winger. And the first band I "fell for" in terms of then buying their Back Catalog, Singles, Live Bootlegs and such? Def Leppard. A child of the late '80s/early '90s, I am... ;-D
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Nothing at the moment: with a move very much in the near future, there's little point to commit to something local.
