I was going through my discs and my stepfather saw that I have three different versions of Bloody Kisses and asked me why the heck would I do that. Well, I said...let me show you. I showed him "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend" to soften the blow of having metal unleashed on his brain and took it all the way to the Symphony for the Devil DVD. His favorite was "GF/GF" and "Christian Woman".
My mother, who is 64, watched the whole DVD. Okay, I ffwrded through the ass jokes, but she really enjoyed their music. She asked me when they were coming out with their new album and I had to explain there wouldn't be one.
I showed my stepdad, who is a Black Sabbath fan, the APHND cd. Needless to say, he's made a list of new stuff he needs to buy. I made my parents fans. We followed up our visit with NIB/Sabbath and had a great time. Every time I expose someone new to TON, or APHND, or anything really, it's like a gift from the musician, to the fan, to the next fan. For Peter, Kenny, Johnny, Hank, Matt, Lyle, and Sal and all the rest of you. Guys thanks.
You make daily living a little more tolerable.
