Are You KID-ing Me?

Back when Def Leppard first hit the stage, they were known for their age; or lack thereof, actually and had been tagged as being the “youngest metal band” at that time. Over the years, there have been a plethora of bands where the average age seems to be that just shy of being able to obtain a driver’s license.

Now come The Thrashers, whose album title, Nine, pays respect to their youthful exuberance.


While most tots are finding complacency with a Toy Story DVD or their trusty playground swing set, one group of young boys were blazing a very different trail at their local day care. They were planting the roots of metal.

Being just a few weeks short of my 47th birthday and remembering back to what I was doing at their age, I feel really old, not to mention this begs the question of just of how “young” is “too young” to rock?
