You Might Be A Glam Fan If...

Posted on Thursday, March 6, 2008 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments24 Comments

This could be fun. I wonder if I can think of 10 ways to spot a Glam fan? Lets see...

 10. You might be a Glam fan if...you spend your entire vacation budget to stand in a field in the middle of Oklahoma for four days in 110 degree heat to relive a little of your childhood.

 9. You might be a Glam fan if...you can *still* spot Adam Curry a mile away.

 8. You might be a Glam fan if...you can sing every word of "Babylon." Extra points for mimicking Taime Downe's voice!

 7. You might be a Glam fan if...you work in corporate America but secretly wear a Motley Crue T-shirt underneath your dress clothes.

 6. You might be a Glam fan if...you still buy Metal Edge in hopes that at least one "good" band will get a mention.

 5. You might be a Glam fan if...you can quickly and succinctly explain the legal issues surrounding the two touring versions of L.A. Guns.

 4. You might be a Glam fan if...you spend your entire winter dreaming about spring just so you can hear the summer concert schedule.

 3. You might be a Glam fan if...you go into withdrawal every time MetalSludge goes down (three days and counting!)

 2. You might be a Glam fan if...you select "Heaven" as your wedding song.

 1. You might be a Glam fan if...you quit a job because you can't get time off to see your favorite band.

Don't agree with my list? How do you spot a Glam fan?

Guilty on most of these. I gave up on metal sludge a long time ago, that site is just screwed now. Dunno if they just don't care, or what.

The last time I bought a copy of Metal Edge was probably back when it was still dominated by glam bands who were still in their prime.Then again I don't think I have bought any print metal/hard rock magazine this decade.

Funny!

Guilty, too!

10- Section B row 4. Actually had row 2, but asked for an aisle seat instead and was moved 2 rows back.

9- And you also know who CC Banana is.

8- Back when Taime wasn't an asshole!

7 - Every day I wear a concert tee underneath my professional clothes- Van Halen, Britny Fox, Cinderella, AC/DC, countless others...It's better than wearnig a "wife beater".

6 (but I cheat and read it each time I go to the grocery store and put it back on the shelf...I HATE it when an issue has the plastic wrap on it!),

5- explained it to so many people at Rocklahoma...my wife looks at me awkwardly as if to say, "How in the hell do you know this?"

4- then I email my wife about "our" summer concert schedule. She then shows my emails to her staff and rhetorically says, "Can you believe this?"

almost 3 (used to be way into MS, but it jumped the shark after Stevie revealed who is was and his webmasters left him- there are no longer 20 questions and he rarely writes about rock stars acting like primadonnas)

2- Considered "Heaven" "Always" "Sweet Child O Mine" "Bed of Roses" and a few others, but went for a more "traditional" song

1- I wish, but "both got jobs 'cause there's bills to pay"

...you might be a glam fan if...you secretly listen to the Boneyard online all day, every day at work with your iPod earbuds plugged into your computer.

So true so true, especially #3 & #4 - YEAH YOU RIGHT as we say down in N'awlins. It's killing me, the anticipation of awaiting the damn summer touring routes! I feel lost w/out my metal sludge too. Love the list!

here's another one: You might be a Glam fan if....you search online for syndicated weekly Metal radio shows and make them a part of your weekly/daily routine (i.e. Eddie Trunk, Back In the Day on KNAC.com, Hairball John Radio Show, House of Hair, etc...)

4. You might be a Glam fan if...you spend your entire winter dreaming about spring just so you can hear the summer concert schedule.

3. You might be a Glam fan if...you go into withdrawal every time MetalSludge goes down (three days and counting!)

I liked #8. That song has some good memories for me :)

I laughed at #5 because I do that nearly every day. I tried to explain it to my mum over dinner and she just handed me another glass of wine.

WTF? Nobody wrote the obvious one:

You might be a Glam Fan if you visit this site on a daily basis!

People... People...

You might be a glam fan if...you wear more makeup than your wife/girlfriend and wear bright colored clothes.

You might be a glam fan if you're a dude and have been mistaken for a chick... many,many times...

You might be a glam fan if you know all the words to ""Livewire", "Beat The Bullet", "Things You've Never Done Before" or ANY Poison song pre-1990.

You might be a glam fan if you've ever worn gloves, fishnets, any type of military hat, and rhinestones at the same time.

You might be a glam fan if you can put on makeup and spike your hair in a moving van... at night... in the dark.

You might be a glam fan if you're a guy and know what size women's pants you wear.

You might be a glam fan if you secretly have posters from unsigned 80's bands on the back of your closet door.

You might be a glam fan if you thought Tommy sold out when he cut his hair, not when he started trying to be a rapper.

You might be a glam fan if you put on eyeliner and nail polish to go to the grocery store... and you're a guy.

You might be a glam fan if you're posting on a glam website while you're at work...

You might be a glam fan if:

...you are reading about a race at Colonial Downs (VA), read about a horse named "Kip Deville" and the first thing you wonder is "Winger & Poison fans?"

...your Ipod is loaded with glam band music (guilty)

...go all over the country to see your favorites (guilty...not as bad as some, but I've done it.).
