Hi Guys Don't know if I'm strictly speaking a true Straight-Edge Punk as Ive only been to a Punk concert once, and listen to Minor Threat and the Sex Pistols occasionally. I listen hard out to Nirvana, and Cobain,Grohl and Novasalic considered themselves Punk, so Grunge is an offshoot of the wider Punk movement (which therefore means Im hardcore on some level or another!). But saying that I fanatically follow the strictly Straight Edge doctrine of no Drugs, Alcohol and Cigarettes, and wear the black X on my hand rather often. These customs form the core ideology of the whole Straight Edge subculture. Was just starting this thread out of interest to see how many of my fellow bassists share my teetotaler/Punk beliefs, draw black Xs on their hands at Rock/Punk concerts and therefore consider themselves Straight Edge? Can do the whole club number thing, as well, if everybody's into that?
