Bella Morte ("beautiful death") is currently my fave band... I'll be seeing them next sunday (June 21st, '08) I have to tell all my best buds about the great fun I'll have. I simply live to go see shows... in fact, I was even thinking about volunteering for La Crosse's renowned rock venue, the Warehouse. You can go to warehouserocks.com, if your that interested. I'm also a great fan of Nightwish. They rock just as hard. You see, I don't just listen to male led rock bands, I could list plenty of talented songtresses with that coveted hard-edged voice, that can go from soft & ethereal to tough & gravelly... in a moments notice. I've been seriously considered becoming a DJ & perhaps even started a new agey, goth band of my own, while I'm still young (I'm 18, as of yet)... one things for sure I love to sing & play keyed instruments (especially the electic piano.) Trent Reznor inspires me... he started out testing his skills, while merely a child. So did Emilie Autumn, the beloved violinist/singer & songwriter. I do write songs myself. Personally I appreciate music that much more, when its been written by the artist. Afterall in that manner, the song's are more meaningful to them, whenver they sing it.
