\m/If you could be anything besides yourself for a day, what would you be, and why?
I would be the Hansi Kursh from Blind Guardian on the day of a 10,000 audience show :D

\m/What was the Best Metal concert you've been to?
Oh, Blind Guardian of course... just because I love them so much. I'm sure Pagan Fest is going to be amazing (minus Tyr lol) but i'm probably going to be going crazy getting pictures than enjoying the show... the only down side of concert photography!

Just one more: Your face :D
