Can you give me the first word or expression that comes to your mind when someone evoke these bands ? :
AC/DC : I was never a fan of them. I think a lot of their music sounds exactly the same and i never understood the hype about them. I like some of their songs but i can count those on 1 hand.
METALLICA : I hated that band when i was kids but over the last 10 years i really got into them after watching some of the documentaries about them. Lars Ulrich might not be the greatest drummer but he knows exactly what he wants. I met James Hetfield 2 years ago at a festival with KISS and talked with him about a few things. He is a really cool guy
KISS : the greatest band ever
IRON MAIDEN : I like some of their music but was never a big fan of them
GUNS N ROSES : I liked them in the beginning but by the time the Illusion records came out i lost interest in them.But i still love their early stuff. I always preferred LA Guns
MOTLEY CRUE : Their first 2 records are so awesome. "Too fast for love" might not have the best production but that album has so much personality and so many great songs.
