I’m Irish, I’m 43 and married to the wonderful Louise and we’ve got 2 amazing little girls (Erin 8 and Alice 7) who are taking their first steps into rock & metal – Erin’s favourite band is Halestorm but with the amount of Alter Bridge these two and their mum listen to I don’t think that will stand true. Discovered Aerosmith back in the 80’s and it went from there… thrash, death and black metal came and went and then came back again, and I’m still hooked in and unlikely to let go.
