My name is Jaide, and I’m a 18 year old recent high school graduate. I started this website for a few reasons- one, because of my love for music. I’ve loved hard rock and heavy metal for as long as I can remember, but I never thought I would be able to make a career out of it. My music taste ranges from Kiss and Van Halen, to Iced Earth and Venom- and just about everything in between. I spent a year in beauty school with plans of going to college for fashion, until one day I was watching That Metal Show on VH1 Classic (as I did almost every day) and I thought to myself “I wanna do that”. So, I decided to start trying to. I partly owe this website to Eddie, Don and Jim from That Metal Show who first inspired me to pursue music, and then were kind enough to let me interview them. I also owe some of this to Bill Leverty, who you may know for playing lead guitar for the band Firehouse. I had first asked Bill to let me interview him for my school paper, which would have ultimately helped me get into college and so on. Bill was nice enough to call me that night and let me interview him which made me think that maybe I really could start a website based around the genre of music I love. And I lastly owe a lot of this site to my dad, who has helped me from the start. If it wasn’t for him I probably would never have started listening to Kiss when I was younger, and likely wouldn’t have started going to rock concerts around age 9. Since, he’s taken me to nearly every single concert I’ve attended and given me all of the resources I needed to run a successful site. Lastly, I am so thankful for everyone who has let me interview them for the site, and for everyone who reads the site. You all mean so much to me.
