what are your favorite back-stories behind any member of any band, ever?

since I don't know many, I am gonna have to go with the legendary Dave Mustaine

Lived on his own when he was 15, stayed afloat by dealing drugs, got into metal cause one of his clients owned a music store, joined metallica, got kicked out of metallica, formed his own band, became legendary, and then the second biggest douchebag (first being Axl Rose) in rock history, was an alcoholic, went to rehab, changed around to the way he is now, and now he is known as the greatest METAL (there happy) guitarist in the world.

So yeah, what are your favorites.
VERY METAL!

RIP Ronnie James Dio

The guy from Girls.

edit: Christopher Owen. Grew up in the Children of God cult, finally escaped it and started buying albums since he could finally listen to them. Now he's got a BNM from Pitchfork and he's popular in San Francisco.

Dave Mustaine is the greatest guitarist in the world?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Maybe if it was greatest metal guitarist, you'd have an argument. But even then, Tony Iommi's got that.
Chinese Democracy is a great album, people need to get over Slash.

Proud fan of Pop, Rap, Rock, and Metal.

Miika Tenkula, he died in february this year. He wrote my favorite music piece ever.

I can relate to him because he start to play guitar on the late and started in his band with short hair. Also, he wrote almost everything in Dm, my favorite key.


But my favorite story is the one of Mayhem.

Mayhem.
Their back story should be turned into a movie. It would be the next Titanic, only with less Kate Winslet and more gore.
Seriously, every time I tell people the story of Mayhem they can't get over it. And yet it's true.

+1. I also enjoyed Slash's memoir very much.

Also, who declared Dave Mustaine the greatest guitarist in the world? Seriously.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Music isn't the Olympics. It's not about showing other people what you can do with a piece of wood in your hands that has strings on, it's about making sounds that are good.

some guy who run statistics I don't know. And he was in a book that listed him as number one in the 100 greatest guitarists ever.

And I would love to see the story of Mayhem make into a movie. It would make billions off of metalheads everywhere

Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) - recorded some of the songs from his first album when he was 13-14, transferred them over from a cassette that was mangled by a cat. Built and programmed most of his own equipment from early on.

I was to lazy to check, but it sound like the band id read about Strange in a way.. Can't say id go buy a disposable camera and take a pic of a band member with a hole in his head..
He also made necklaces out of the fragments of his skull, and it's rumored that he made a stew out of the guys brain, although I'm pretty sure that hasn't been proven.
