Hooooray! Huge thanks to everyone who voted! Loads of you got behind me this year (oooooer!)â€¦and i am truly greatful for your support. As alot of you will know, I have been around Brum for ages playing noisy music, getting trashed and generally trying to enjoy myself in this grey sprawling metropolisâ€¦.. I started off playing at the Mermaid pub in Sparkhill in the late eighties with my punk band Doomâ€¦then moved to Moseley in the early nineties allowing me to meet hundreds of strange and interesting new folk which made way for much partying, debauchery and mayhem!!! Many fun times have been had at Eddies, Excels, the Coach and Horses, the Jug of Ale, the Cocks, the Hare and Hounds, Scruffiesâ€¦even the Moseley Dance Centre!!! eeek! Getting a job at Kerrang has also been a dream come true, allowing me to focus on my main passions (music and talking bollox!) and this year has been especially fantastic being involved in the Home Of Metal project, working at Supersonic, meeting Tony Iommi from Sabbath, making a new album with my band Haxan, supporting loads of underground music (not just metal!) and generally trying to promote my love for a city that deserves much more recognition for its humour, intelligence, creative community and itâ€™s overall output. Thanks and viking hails to my inner circleâ€¦. Frances, Clive, Nick, Dee, Rachel, Stu, Jo, Rick, Sam, Mum, Dad, Julie and Sue, Allie, the entire Kerrang team, Carmen and the stay sick rockers, Capsule ladies, Stagecraft crew, the Moseley and Kings Heath massive, my listeners, the brummie punks, the brummie metallers and anyone else who knows me or voted for meâ€¦.. Hail Satan! xx
