Disclaimer: If you don't like cool stories, please go to the bottom of the page for just the facts.

You know, Ray and I are on the road constantly, promoting our "Atlanta Guitar Show," which will be coming to a theater near you this June (shameless plug isn't it?) Yeah, just as I stated earlier, being on the road is full of surprises but mostly it's just plain white line fever. On this episode of "Road Life- 'Elk Style," I was chillin' after a long drive to Knoxville, just sitting in the van, a little bleary-eyed. Then, somewhere between trying to convince my legs to properly function and a bite of a Slim Jim, I swear I heard what you may have heard in some parking lot back in '84.

A white Corolla with more that a few dents and a shit pot of bumper stickers rolled right by me with Dio's "Holy Diver" cranked unapologetically. As this mystic, yet dented time machine trolled the parking lot, more than a few senior citizens scampered as their blissful run to the Family Dollar was unceremoniously disturbed when that tremendous voice broke through the night air, talkin bout:

  • Shiny diamonds.
  • Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue.
  • Something is coming for you.

    As I excitedly raised my hand to make the Devil Sign, the midnight rider vanished. Shocked, I thought to myself, "When was the last time I witnessed such a blatant act of public Heavy Metaldom?" Mind you, it doesn't count if you're in a concert parking lot about to devour more whiskey than Motley Crue while looking at shapely concert-goers.

    People, this was an isolated incident and this story is for the Metal Bandit just driving around not even caring if it's not 1984. "Why should he care," I thought and that gave me nothing but respect for that pimp. Thank you, sir for the reminder and like that bumper sticker you so proudly rocked, "If it's too loud, you're to "f*ck*ing old." Nice touch, Bandit and I salute you.

    As for this guitar? I know Vivian played a 'Paul and a Charvel, but this guitar would certainly be in the metal wheelhouse. It was made right before Grunge outright destroyed Metal. This Showster, as you know is kind of an anomaly. Yep- it's got a metal bar running through it to allow the thinline body to have more sustain. Don't you see? Metal=Sustain, sustainability=classics and classic lends itself to Ronnie James Dio.

    In closing people, if you're ever in a parking lot, surrounded by the Eastern skies of Tennessee and the Metal Bandit comes-a-calling? Just smile and join in... "What's that Ronnie?"

  • Between the velvet lies
  • There's a truth that's hard as steel
  • The vision never dies
  • Life's a never ending wheel, yeah
