    Greetings @Timmy Dee :)

    September 12th 1986: Edinburgh Playhouse..... Lost count how many times since then ~ not as many as Slayer though, who are still pumping out the good stuff :)

    When I'm really, really old I plan on scaring the bejesus out of all the young aged care nurses by playing loud 80's metal and using my Zimmer frame for headbanging support :) :) :)

    I too was gutted when Jeff passed away...... still listen to them everyday though: Repentless is almost as good as the early days :)

    I was pretty sad too when Dave Lombardo got a bit wishy-washy and decided to leave/return/leave....

    I have drumsticks from Dave and plectrums from Jeff and Kerry... All safely stashed at my mum's place back in the UK.

    Ahhhh.... the good old days (before internet) of queuing up overnight for concert tickets, the banter, the beer, the music! Who else was there? Iron Maiden, ACDC, Megadeth, Motorhead, Metallica, Anthrax, Testament, Slayer.... loads more!

    Cheers Benjamin. The three that I use most often are my Merkur Futur (my daily shave atm), the Merkur 39C Slanthammer, and the MMOC.

    Yeah it's good to hear that the meetups are still happening at Tilleys.

    Geez 65 times! That's epic. I am still in single figures - I think eight.

    Besides the razors listed above, I alternate my software up a LOT; I have a tennis racquet bag full just of soaps that I've collected over the years.
    Currently pressed in my shaving bowl is a combination of SMN shaving cream and Trumpers Coconut, but I've also been using Stirling Glacial on the stinking hot mornings, Queen Charlotte Soaps Basilica, and Tiki Go West.

    Yeah Slayer's quality is still up there. Sadly Metallica's newer stuff hasn't really come close to recapturing their old form. I still need to grab Machine Head's latest, but I've heard less than glowing reviews. I'm super keen for the new Judas Priest and Monster Magnet albums coming soon, too.

    Geez.... Last time I would have listened to Judas Priest would have been years and years ago, would have probably had either Accept or Saxon on the other side of the cassette lol :)

    Did you ever see the series of documentaries "Metal Evolution" I think it was called.... memories will come flooding back!!! I think it was on SBS a few years ago, could be in their online archives.

    Anyone here in the Berra notice that Cradle of Filth are playing @ Academy in May?!?!
    I mean, I kinda understand Satyricon shoehorning themselves into Transit, cos it's fairly alternative already, but Academy????
    That blows my tiny mind.

    That is wild, TBH I don’t get to academy often, I’m not regularly in the market for a spiked drink or a stolen car stereo
