There are three things in my life that I
have consistently loved: music, monsters, and muscles
(wrestling). From early childhood my house growing up was
always filled with music. We would all sing together: Bing
Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, etc...So my love of music was
embedded in me. When heavy metal came along I was hooked. I
spent many a night up into the wee hours watching Headbanger's
Ball and Rikki Rachtman! 1989 I started meeting bands, writing
to them, being part of their street teams (helping promote
them). I met way too many bands to name and went to see so
many concerts for free, along with getting back stage. I did
that for a good 10 years of my life. During this time I also
starting taking photographs and co-editing a little local
music newsletter with my friend Lori. My dream was to be a
music photographer or write a magazine like Metal Edge.
When I was 14 I fell in love with horror
movies and wrestling. I always
loved horror even as a child.. I remember my first crush being
on Eddie Munster of all people.. I swore I'd marry that kid!
Then I fell in love with Dracula and Bela Lugosi and the rest
is history as they say.. From there I went on to discover the
talents of Tom Savini and I've been a fan of special effects
ever since.. I remember staying up late into the
morning watching horror movies with my grandfather. I asked
him if he liked them and he always said "no" but he would be
there watching them with me until 3 a.m. sometimes anyway!
Him and my grandmother would both watch
wrestling with me. In the beginning I was not interested and
then I saw Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka and I was hooked! Then came
Shawn Michaels, the Undertaker, and Mick Foley. Triple crush!
So this webzine has been created from all the I love and as a
dream continuation of something I've always aspired to do but
never did! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have creating it!
