I could just keep a journal, compose poetry, write everything I could think of, and then sit down, play a couple of chords, put everything together and get myself. It’s me!

FAN “METALLICA” MOST PASSIONAL!

According to British experts, a person’s musical preferences may indicate his predisposition to sex.
