    Hey Mark,

    I just want to thank you or printing my review of the Gigantour show down that was down here early this month (Oct. 2006). I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to present my views and opinions about the bands that play the music we love.

    I was pleased to hear on the last 2 podcasts that there are other “old metal heads” listening to your show…and they’re older than me! I guess I’ll have to relinquish my claim as your oldest listener to Abbey from New Jersey. Rock on Abby!!

    Again, thanks Mark (and John!)! You’re doing the metal community a great service with your podcast. Your continued success with the Talking Metal podcast is proof that metal is a vibrant, indestructable form of musical expression that will live on, if not forever, at least as long as there are people who love it.

    I just wanted to say that I think you and John do a great job. I loved your interview with Chris Degarmo and Geoff Tate. It was really nice to hear Degarmo. He didn’t seem to go into much detail about his career as a pilot? Do you know if he works with a major airline? I knew he had done a few musical projects since leaving Q.R., but the fact that he is a commercial pilot is very fascinating to me.
    Mark, I know that Talking Metal is not your full time job, but would love to hear you and John interview some artists such as: Winger, Rush, and Lenny Wolf. Mark what is your e-mail address?
