So a while back I wrote a post about an online dating site for Metalheads.
I mentioned that being a lover of metal, I might have turned to that site if I was unlucky in love.
[Whereas it’s Jill who is the unlucky one. Boom Tish]
What I can tell you is that while I am now a bald bastard, I wasn’t always that way so to help you picture me as a ‘metalhead dating candidate’, I thought I’d show you a photo of me from that era.
Well, to be honest, it’s only ‘sort-of’ from that era, as I took it a few weeks ago as a leaving ‘present’ for a client of mine who was heading back to the US.
[I should add, he was leaving before he saw the pic, I’m not the cause of his departure. Allegedly]
Anyway, cop a load of this …
What a dish eh!
OK, more like a dish that has been lying in the sink for 7 weeks with a load of stains on it.
However, may I point out that the leather jacket I’m wearing is the same one I had when I was 20 years of age.
Of course I can’t zip it up, but the fact I can still sort-of wear it is amazing to me.
Anyway, as you have been so nice to not vomit yet, I thought I’d push-you-over-the-edge with a photo of me from that actual era.
Just for context, it’s one of the press photos we were ordered to have done before we had our first album released. As you can tell by the fact I now work in adland, it bombed and we were dropped soon after but it still was one of the best times of my life … well, it was while I thought we were going to be Rock Gods.
Anyway, have a look at the photo … I swear one of them is me.
Can you tell?
I’ll give you a clue, I’m holding the guitar.
Yes, it’s a very long time ago.
And like the leather jacket, I still have those jeans and that guitar … though I can only just about squeeze the 6-string around me these days.
[Sorry, soon-to-be-born son]
