Ok, SO I am 18 and I meet these guys who want a drummer for their band, they heard about me through other bands, SO I decide to try out for the band. Needless to say after hearing me playing one song (Seasons in the Abyss) they want me in. days later after hanging out with them they introduce me to this band Life of Agony, at this point they still dnt know what my last name is cause I go by Johnny Demone, when I seee the last name of the singer I was like "fkn right on!!!!" The first thing I noticed about the band was that they all sounded so tight and had that hard edge to them with a wicked front man, him being a Caputo or not wasn't the issue this guy was amazing I thought to myself. Already being a Type O negative fan I figured out Sal was in this band which it made it better, he had been the most influential drummer to me. I can't count how many times I listened to Bloody Kisses. I took a break form playing in bands after my dad died but Life of Agony was always there to get me through the tough times, I would just go to my drums, Crank up the LOA or TON and follow Sal.... For that I would like to say thanks to Sal for Helping me release the anger and frustration of my loss without knowing it or that I even existed, music can reach so many people and the artists sometimes dnt realize it. Now Sal is back and he sings and plays guitar, well whatta coincidence I stepped away from the drums myself and bought a guitar and started writing singing and I am the Rhythm guitarist in my band,once again I am inspired, I was touched very much by Peter Steele's death in April that I made a facebook page to Honor him "Type O Negative Army" I quickly realized that Seventh Void was around APHND and Spoiler NYC, I realized I was not in touch as much with the NYHC scene as I used to be (had kids got married and went back to school) the last 5 months have been interesting, I got to know Johnny Kelly, Keith Caputo, Alan Robert and of course Sal, Now all I have been listening to is those bands I mentioned. I am planning to be in NYC next spring and Duffs is my first stop. I could go on and on forever on how amazing this is. it's good to see the determination of all these bands and I am just glad to be a part of this, even if it is some small way....Thanks again Sal...

There's a thriving music industry here in Austin, but I have to admit I really love the Brooklyn scene. NYHC (giggle) has it going on!

What does NYHC mean?

I totally agree it was amazing to see the response of my Type O Negative Army page after Pete Died, its because of that very page that I got to know some of my favorite musicians... Usually when you go up to a famous musician they don;t have the time of day, not these guys they actually read and understand how their fans feel...NYHC has the most down to earth musicians hands down. Cheers

Dude, yeah. Great statement. I love this new age of being able to just tell the artist "Dude, you inspired me," and they are like like "Cool, thanks man."
