Music is a very personal thing. It's so personal and people feel so strongly about it that I'm surprised it hasn't started wars. To me it's way more important than any religion, but not worth fighting over. Most people seem to have me down as either a heavy metal nut or goth . And I'd be lying if I said I didn't adore heavy metal, especially progressive metal at the moment. I'd also be lying if I said I didn't like a lot of goth music. I like the clothes too and regularly attend the October Whitby Gothic Weekend . People seem keaner to latch on to the idea I may be a goth, probably because goths appear more interesting than metallers, are perceived as being weird and people generally understand them less. People also seem to have the impression that people who like heavy metal only listen to the really heavy stuff, always listen to it very loudly and never listen to anything else. This of course is a long way from being true. My passion is rock music
