My name is Brian, and I have the distinct honor of having been asked by Allyson to be a contributing writer to Bring Back Glam! So before submitting my first real post, I thought I’d take a brief moment to introduce myself. I am a 35-year-old married father of two that that lives in central Connecticut. I am also a huge fan of metal, of course including Glam.
By day, I am an attorney for an insurance group, and by night, I am the drummer of a relatively successful cover band (though we did write and record a few original songs), Jive Miguel. While we are presently on an extended break (perhaps permanent? who knows), we did have a great five year run.
Additionally, I have also been a contributing writer for DRUM! Magazine, and for several years, I contributed the monthly "Legal Eagles" column, as well as a few feature articles for the publication. I have to say, it never got old to me to see my name and picture in print in the same magazine as Tommy Lee.
So that’s me in a nutshell. I don’t claim to know any more or less than anyone else about metal or Glam, but I do have my own thoughts and opinions about this genre that we all love. Allyson is now providing me with a platform from which I can express those opinions. I am happy to be part of the BBG! family and you guys are now stuck with reading my opinions: please be kind!
