LEGIONS OF METAL – Complete Coverage 2017 (Festival Report)

LEGIONS OF METAL – Complete Coverage 2017 (Festival Report)

I am a hard rock and metal music fan. Many different genres and styles. Card carrying. Proud as hell. Totally necessary for life. It enhances yet also controls my life. It was not always so. In days gone by, some 30 years ago to as recent as 10 years back, I suffered abuse and ridicule for my listening pleasures. Today, those offenders, so-called friends, have been flushed away.
