COOL SITE ALERT: A Little Bit Of Cheek

Some of you, like me, are metal-blasting, riff-flinging, axe-slinging Metal Dads. The Metal Dad is an often-overlooked aspect of society – the kind of guy who takes his 4-year-old along to the House Of Blues to see Ozzy Osbourne and Slash in the flesh, or who explains to their kid the finer points of the difference between Van Halen and Van Hagar on the way to kindergarten.

Start their metal education early, I say!
