    And for some reason I can`t windmill and play at the same time. Lots of side-to-side banging haha


    Did the sparkly rainbow music curl your hair or was it genetic ? :lol: :P :mrgreen:

    bahahahaha just saw this (several weeks late, I know). Combination of both I believe... had to go get a big tub of brown hair dye to get my hair back to the normal colour after each pink (and sparkly) hair changing experience on stage.

    Curls are from my old man. :D

    Hah, wear I work, it is frowned upon to even have any facial hair..... the only exception really is a regular old-fashioned mustache :roll:

    I'm rockin' the Mr. Clean look these days, with some type of wanna-be goatee. I'm not a fan of headbanging, except when I get my 7 yr old to do it as a joke with a Rock Band guitar :deathmetal: :deathmetal: :deathmetal:

    Speaking of which I have to upload that to Facebook one of these days.

    It doesn't even need to be pulled back. The business world needs to get with the fucking times. Glad I don't have to cut mine. I would raise a huge stink about it if the subject ever even came up.

    Damn that clip is sure making the rounds.

    Using that to give myself permission to double post this one since it is appropriate to the thread discussion:

    The sound on it is a little low so prepare to turn up a bit (not a joke attempted to cause a freak out like some other vids, just a helpful suggestion)

    I don't think there was one.

    I must say that Dave is a great headbanger but I could give him a run for his money if I had the opportunity... the only thing is, since I have short hair it doesn't look at 'cool'.... but I don't care... it pleases me to do it when the music fits to me!

    Him and I may have one yet. We shall meet again! :D

    Dave was displaying some serious head banging action while at karaoke too!

    There's a video on YouTube that someone took on Epica at the pool deck on the second night that you can see me headbanging in too! :lol: :headbanger:

    Headbanging during EPICA? I hope it was during a part where Simone wasn't singing. That's for Kevin. :deathmetal: :deathmetal: :deathmetal:

    they didn't have a heavy sound at the Chorus Line stage (in my opinion anyway)! i have heard them on disk and they sounded heavier in recordings than they did live. of all the bands on the ship i thought they had the worst sound, i just thought it sounded hollow. i have heard from others that i'm on crack, maybe a little LOL.

    sorry Rachael i couldn't resist - and after many of kevin's bee swarm stings lately i was inclined to dish a little out.

    at any rate, there are way worse bands out there than Epica, so jam out my friends....i'll be napping w/Kevin.

    Why thank you! Why I do appreciate your kind words, that was child's play for me. (A bit of an ego, i know)

    I'd say my best performance was when I was at the back between the balcony and floor at the while watching Amon Amarth at the chorus line.
    Metalho and her friend were next to me (didn't know at the time) and she can confirm this.

    Also did a shot of this video during exodus.

    Great vid lol!! Adding to my 70K Youtube Favs for sure!

    I heard there was one guy on the ship who thought he could outbang ya but the 2 of you never actually crossed paths :lol:

    (I had a whole shitload of fun at David's expense leaving him crank phone msgs in his cabin from a make believe banger who claimed he could windmill, do 2 guitar solos and juggle bowling pins all at the same time. Would've liked to have milked it a little longer but David caught me with a trick question)
