Who the Hell Am I?

Posted on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterBrian Carvell | Comments12 Comments

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!

What the h*ll is going on?

Geez, Lou!

Huh-uh-lo-oh!

Don't be quite so fast, tryin' to get rid of me, Louis.

Remember, I'm just in the Nose Bleed Section here, pal...

Welcome, Brian. Now I can mess with someone else besides just Allyson (just kiddin', Al... and Bri!).

See you kidz at M3! Sweet Lou, I think you said you were comin'! We'll raise a toast to Al when we all convene for the Counsel for The Cauldron!

The countdown is on, kidz!

T-minus-10 and counting...9...8...7... only 7 more days 'til M3! Woo Hoo!!! Yow! C'mon, Rock'n'Roll People! People, let's Rock'n'Roll!

Don't call me LOUIS hahahahahaha. IF you read my VERY next post, you'll see I was KEEDING! There is NO similarity in the writings and ramblings of our MetalBoy.
As for M3, the plan WAS to be there, but unless the tickets that were promised come through, nah. I was offered VIP tickets at a premium and was absolutely willing to pay, then...nada. Not to mention I will be making a complete fool of myself the following night doing a couple of GnR covers with some local musicians and Joe Leste and Alex Grossi...gotta keep that voice in tact. LMAO!
