Metal's "B-side" Page 2
by C.J. Cain
Not all contributions came in the form of fat checks, although some did; others took the form of taking part in charitable events or donating personal items for charitable auctions. Equally as notable, these were genuine acts of compassion, not court-ordered community service projects performed to pay off episodes of drunken debauchery.
Heavy metal, and those of us who live by it, are sometimes unfairly represented as the leather-wearin', multiple-pierced and tattooed spawn of Satan himself. This is the A-side that society chooses to show. I encourage all of you to continue working on the B-sides of your choosing, because there are a lot more "gems" out there just waiting to be seen and heard.
