No FB, never had, never will. I do fraternize with some cool rock guys, but they don't FB either. They said it was very liberating to get rid of the FB account (s).

Facebook sucks only if you let it suck. It can be a great bridge between fans and artists. Mike Portnoy has liked/commented on things I've posted. Just yesterday there was a discussion about Tim Owens, a lot of it negative, and he stopped by the conversation.

I made some comments on Static-X a while back, which pissed off Tony Campos, so he sent me an angry Facebook message. Haha.

But yeah, Facebook is great like that. If you don't like seeing certain things in your feed, just block or unfollow the person posting it. Simple. Use Ad-block Plus to block ads, and you're golden.

Facebook is really no different from a forum if you take an active role in controlling what you want to see.

There is a relatively new Heart of Metal Facebook page, for those who may not know. Dig it!

Cool. I sent my request to join.

The closest I have to a metal "friend" on FB is guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite. He's more goth, though.

Facebook is a cool way to keep track of what bands are doing, if they use it. FB is how I learned Paul Stanley would be in a nearby city for a book signing and I got my photo taken with him. Facebook is how I found out about the VIP Bus Bash with Saxon and got to meet the band. Saxon is really good at using FB, posting video of the crowds in every city they play. Bands should utilize it to keep their fans up to date on their goings on.

Laughing very hard

That guy is such a shit-stain. I'm surprised he hasn't been beaten to death for running his mouth in front of the wrong people.

I'm "FB friends" with John Gallagher from Raven, Kory Clarke of Warrior Soul, Mark Briody of Jag Panzer, Randy Rose of Mad at the World/Rose, Michael Drive Lee of Barren Cross, Keith Roth of Bad Biscut/Frankenstein 3000, Toby Knapp of Onward, Jon Love of Love/Hate, and several others I can't think of off the top of my head because I'm under-caffeinated...

Oh yeah, some guys you might've heard of named Shawn Pelata and Scott Waters, too. Very Happy

If that is what you want to use it for, I guess. I just reconnected with the rest of my family of cousins, aunts and uncles that I haven't seen years. My Dad had 11 other siblings, so you can imagine how many cousins that is.................

The only musicians I have are Sam from Purson & Annie Hogan (who I really don't imagine anyone on here would know) I have had conversations with plenty of bands on FB but I'm not the type to collect FB 'friends' for the sake of it.

I have thought of getting an account from time to time just for the Music angle of keeping up with some news and happenings. But, between HoM and a few other forums I lurk on, I don't feel that there is a whole lot I am missing.
