I thought that maybe it would be nice for people to get to know more about each other... Here is the place to introduce yourself!

I know that I should be a good example and do the first introduction, but it seems you people on this forum knows more about me than I do, haha. So I'm passing it on to the next guy... Who wants to start???

Thanxxx for hanging around at our forum.

And thank YOU for joining us ;)

uhm I guess people here "know" me a little as well since I'm here almost everyday since over a year or so and this is more for new members I guess?, but for those who don't know, I'm Anna, I'm 20 years old, I'm from the financial town Frankfurt on Main in germany (financial town means it sucks but I love it anyway), I do stupid things like travelling after certain bands alot more than it's healthy for my pockets, I get very annoying times where I start to philosoph about unimportant things. I like to write and I like to draw, and I'm trying to become a visual artist of any sort, though the plan is to become a communication designer first (that means I will learn how to make ads, commercials and so on, layout magazines, marketing strategies, webdesign etc.) so I can live of something.
Oh. and I'm one of the organizers of the german Crashdiet streetteam.
that's it. :lol:

Finally! I've watched this thread now, but didn't want to be the first ;P
Thanks for setting the standard, Mrs V. Viper!

Well, I'm Julie Wilhelmine from Norway, which btw is so damn cold right now!
17 years old. Young enough to live, but old enough to know. I have a perfect son,
who's almost 6 months now. I love to create and express through art and I consider
myself an artist.

The band who stole my heart was Wig Wam, and they've really changed me and my
life. When I heard Crashdïet for the first time it really hit me hard, and I really
loved it. Now I'm the organizer of the Norwegian StreetTeam and I'm very proud
to be able to do that.

My plan for the future is to become a famous tattoo-artist and writer. You'll see me out there! 8-)

My name is Anton Ahlström, I live in a worthless little village a bit outside of Gothenburg haha, what the fuck am i doing here... I'm 18 years old, and I live all alone in my apartment. Struggling with both school and work, but I hope it will be worth it in the end. During my growing up I've been playing guitar, bass and drums. Right now I play bass in a band called Inane Drain :lol: I am a hardcore David Bowie-fan, and he got me into the glam music, together with Alice Cooper. But then Iron Maiden really starded the Hard Rock thingy for me, haha! Best band in the world without any doubt.

I think the first time I heard Crashdïet was live (I think it was -07), supporting Hardcore Superstar in Lisebergshallen. I thought they were absolutley awesome, and when I got home and heard the first record, I was hooked... been an fan since then.

Oh and yeah, almost forgot, I'm single at the moment. And I'm open for... suggestions ;) (Especially from Axl...)

Good idea Peter!

My name is Caroline, I'm a 20 year old vegetarian who live in Västerås (Sweden!) That's just 1½ hour from Stockholm but it's still a lot of trouble to go there and see bands that I like, so unfortunately that doesn't happen too often. Planning on changing that next year ;)
During the days I study to become a kindergarten teacher! Can't really think of any other occupation that I'm interested in. On my spare time I dance, which I've been doing for the past 10 years. Dancing means just as much to me as music means to Crashdïet, so I don't know what I would do without it.
My life has, as everyone elses, had ups and downs. I went through a four year long depression but have been doing great for the past two years :) I have held two lectures about what I went through to inspire people to talk about their problems. So many of us go through the same shit without knowing it! Talking about it helps a lot.
I'm really happy I found this forum where I can speak to people who like this type of rockmusic, cause not a lot of my friends does. Even though I'm working on changing their minds ;) haha, slowly reaching my goal...

Yeah, that'd be cool...

Maybe we need a dating thread asswell? :lol:

Ok, so I'm Axl...

I live in the southern part of sweden called skåne which I'm not very proud of actually, I'm originally from stockholm. I have a wierd taste in music, probably since it's my main intrest. My favourite bands are Crashdïet, Guns N Roses, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Turbonegro, Dissection, Marilyn Manson, GG Allin, Hawkwind and Alter Egon. There's alot more of them but there's no need to list more stuff... I'm 17 and still go to bloody school, most of the time I play guitar. My main goal in life is to be a huge rockstar, I know it sounds like I'm 3 years old but all I want is to play my music to as many people as possible. Don't know if thatz enough, ask me anything you want...
:guitar:

Listen to an album from a band you've never heard of every day, get enlightened! :)

My name is fizzy, 20 years old been to the forumfor almost 3 years. I'm from Germany but moved to England this september. I love to play guitar since I saw Slash the first time when I was 15. Over the years I became ambitious enough to be the best player. (its very objective I know) I also record my music since Dave Lepard and Crashdiet showed me that the kind of music I love has chances in the music buiz nowadays. Tho I would say that Rest In Sleaze changed my life.

Well, alrite then. better get started, right?

i'm Sara and I live in Uppsala, Sweden. A great place to live since it's in the "middle" of the whole country hihi. And only just 45 minutes from Stockholm! And I can also visit David's grave every once and a while.
I'm a bit schizophrenic person, and I embrace every moment I go thru (good or bad). I wouldn't survive without music, art and literature (geeky and proud of it) and at a very young age I decided to dedicate my life to liberation and freedom and music. And writing! Besides school I write tons and tons of poems and novels. it's like the voices in my head never shuts up!

Well, favorite bands... Lady Gaga, Blue October, Crashdiet, Alter Egon, Mötley Crue, KISS, WASP. And I'm addicted to concerts! So yeah.

hell yeah, and here's nr. 2: ME !

I'm Sandy, i'm 15 and i live in Baden-Baden, Germany. (that's pretty next to the border to France, maybe about 5 minutes away with the car)
i love playing guitar and i also like to learn new languages (at the moment it's Swedish (skål! :lol:) as some of you might already know :lol:)
i've got a .. funny.. music taste i'd say.. coz i love Death Metal, Melodic Death Metal, Melodic Metal, sometimes even Blackmetal, Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal, Hair Metal, Sleaze n' Glam, Progressive Rock/Metal, Hard Rock, Blues(rock) and 80's pop :P
i don't think i should mention the bands coz so the list would never end XD

here, i'm a member now for more than a year, and i gotta say that i love the forum and the people here are great :lol:
i discovered Crashdiet on youtube.. i was watching the video to HCSS' "wild boys" and i later i saw that "Crashdiet - Riot in Everyone" was recommended.. first i thought: "crashdiet? what's THAT for a bandname." but i gave it a listen.. and i was blown away :lol:
Crashdiet has changed my life (even two times xD) and i'm glad about that.. otherwise i'd have never really started to listen to Sleaze and Glam and such.. (but now i'm addicted to Crashdiet haha :P)
btw, Rest In Sleaze has become the most important album in my life..

and well.. as I mentioned above, i'm also one of the organizers of the German Crashdiet Streetteam, and i'm proud of it :lol:

uhm, since anyone else writes about it too I want to add something:
How I found Crashdiet is a long story but they helped me out of being really fucked up and depressive. I saw them the first time live on new years eve 2009/2010 in Copenhagen, the 3rd concert with Simon if I'm not wrong, and it was a great experience :lol:
Otherwise my taste in music is very wide (and some say weird) I like everything that is good and I don't like "constructed" music (i.e. most pop but also that very technical guitar play of some Metal bands) I like east european and irish folk, Punk, and obviously all that glam n hardrock stuff has a special place in my heart. But I also like eminem alot (you can calm down it's the only hiphop I like) and a couple of alternative bands. My favorites beside Crash are (at the moment): HIM, Gogol Bordello, Anything Jack White has his fingers in, My chemical romance, D-A-D, David Garrett, Johnny Burning, Dope Stars Inc., Ratt, Buzzcocks & Hanoi Rocks.
it changes quite often tho.

I'm Sophie, I'm 16 and from the UK

I play bass and sing, looking for a band at the moment. i also like to write and am trying to get my first novel published and I work for a UK alternative music magazine called Bubblegum Slut (you've probably seen my failing attempts to advertise it floating around the forum xD) but on that note, if you have any ideas for features or reviews/interviews then let me know!

other than that, I'm at school, hoping to do my A levels at college next year. I've been through episodes of depression over the past two years but seem to be picking up right now; i've had similar ups and downs but i won't go through all those! my favourite bands must be Skid Row, Vain, Crashdiet, Firehouse, HCSS but they change often and I like loads others within the glam/sleaze sound and rock'n'roll. I love going to gigs, London is the main area i go to and it's where I first saw Crashdiet. all this music changed my life :)

CRASHDIET to me are what Hanoi Rocks were to Guns N Roses.

No CRASHDIET, no MrLee and any band he has formed.

Big inspiration, great band that kept me interested in modern music throughout the 00s. The shit on offer in England didnt and still doesnt appeal to me, id of gone insane without any new bands to relate to.

My name is Emil Johansson, 22 years old. Im from southern part of Sweden, but I live up in the north in the winter. Ice cold here right now, almost froze my toes to death a couple of days ago, cant barely walk now.. Anyway, Im an alpine skiier, trying to make it into the world cup. It aint easy, its a long way to go, but there is defently a chance. In my sparetime I work out a lot, study, listening at music, play bass.

I discovered Crashdiet three years ago, but started to like them a year after that. I dont really know why it took me a year until I started to like them, anyway, now Im stuck. Rest In Sleaze is probably the album that I've listened to most times in my life, can't get enuff. I've seen the band 5 times, first time at Sweden Rock Cruise, and last time in the globe, opening for Ozzy. Except from Crash, I love HCSS, Ratt, Crue, Wasp, and the rest of the 80s rock/metal/glam scene. Also like bands like Dire Straits, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rainbow, and a lot of other bands from the 70s.

Maybe I should write something too. My name is Stine, I'm 18 and from Norway. The place I live is so small that no one have heard about it, but its close to Drammen. My biggest interest is horses. I have been riding for 6-7 years, and I work some weekends in a stable. I also have a shetlandpony named Knut I can use as I want to, but I don't have my own horse. At school I study tourism (like hotels and stuff), but I have no idea what I want to do with my life xD I love music to, but just listen. I can't sing (I like too sing, but I sound like a broken goose) or play any instruments. When it comes to music I like very much different, haha. I like (of course) glam and sleaze, but I have a thing for trance and 80s pop. My favourite band will always be Cinderella.

Hej to all.
Great to be here and nice to see at least one familiar face - Sandy I allready got to know via myspace and facebook.

Some words about myself: I've been into Hard Rock/Metal for about 19 years now (I am 28, just started pretty early). Started making music at the age of 12, I am active in two bands. Feel free to ask, if you like to know about that.
Rightnow I work as a freelance journalist, chief editor for a german online-zine called more-metal.com to be exact.
But I am planning to turn pro in the event-business.

Would be really nice to get in contact with more German fans, specially from the Ruhr-Area and of course I enjoy to meet other fans from all over the place.

Have a sleazy sunday
*kram*

The other one is called Foxxy Coxx and as one might guess: We play Sleaze...or at least this is the plan. Since the band just started this week :guitar: :drums: :vocals:


Sorry, just discovered that thread...I will post something there as well!!!
