When did you start collecting records?
I have been collecting vinyl’s/CDs since I was 15 (1988), the new type of musical support (CD) was very attractive, but very expensive and then I had preferred the vinyl at first, as it was cheaper.
Most of my collection is made up of CDs, as I personally think it is better than vinyl, if reproduced well with serious equipment.
What's your favourite record?
This is hard for me to answer, as I have favourites among many different genres –
‘Joe's Garage’ by Frank Zappa
‘Painkiller’ by Judas Priest,
‘The Number of the Beast’ by Iron Maiden
…any Black Sabbath albums
‘Brother Where You Bound’ by Supertramp
‘Animals’ by Pink Floyd
…any Dire Straits albums
‘Harvest’ by Neil Young
‘Once Upon a Time in the West’ by The White Buffalo
Who is your favourite artist/band?
This is another very hard question, but my nickname is "IRONPAZZ" Guess my favourite band!
What is your favourite music based magazine?
When I was younger, my favourite magazine was a heavy metal called ‘Metal Shock’, which ran until 2008.
Now, I prefer to listen and judge for myself online, through YouTube and various other social media platforms.
