  JOHNNY MAIN

johnny main

I am a Glasgow-based rock writer and blogger who's been into rock and Metal music since discovering Iron Maiden way back in 1988. My musical preferences range from mainstream rock bands like AC/DC, Status Quo and Queensryche to heavier bands like Slayer, Mastodon and Possessed.

I'm a regular gig-goer and have been to over 700 gigs so far, including seeing one particular rock band over 35 times! Some of my favourite gigs include the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert at Wembley Stadium in 1992, Iron Maiden at Earls Court in 2000, KISS at Donington in 1996 and Status Quo at Glasgow's Solid Rock Café during their famous promotional Pub Tour in 1999.
