Default Re: Harley-Davidson Is Like Heavy Metal

When i eas a young teenager in Britain our favorite bands were "Queen", "The Kinks", and "Sweet", and yes, we were completely clueless! US gay band of the time were Village people - gay men singing gay songs about other gay men..... The brits just loved the clothes, which was why in the early seventies there were hordes of teenage guys prancing around in yellow demin and velvet just like our favorite, really gay, bands..

Oh, my god, take that back now.



You shall not mention Judas Priest and Metallica in the same breath as Motley Crue and Guns n Roses.



I think Satan will pay you a visit tonight, just to set you straight.

You beat me to it, pdad - I've always thought it was funny that the leather-and-studs heavy metal uniform was due to a gay man influencing an unsuspecting fandom.



I wonder what the fashion would have been without Halford's influence? Would Ronnie James Dio have had a clear road to popularize a Celtic barbarian look?

No way. My MC5 and Hawkwind collections will protect me.

"Unfortunately, Def Leppard screwed up the whole genre."



Their first two albums kicked ass. I was waiting with bated breath and a week's allowance for the third. When I saw the video for "Photograph" on MTV, a little piece of me died.

OK, but who do you blame the women's underwear on?



Or is that worn exclusively by members of Parliament?

Don't laugh, Dio was the original roaming gnome.



Now, has anyone been able to decipher the lyrics to a single Dio song? I know there are lots of circles and wheels and thingies like that. But at 13 or 14 years old even I knew that they didn't make any sense. I thought that midget was great, nonetheless. He's still making records. In fact, one of his latest got some really, really good reviews. Long live the evil dwarf.

Raymond Douglas Davies was running a gay band?
