 Post subject: How about an "Ask Ironface166" section?

Having read through quite a few threads (as well as being a lurker before that terrible hacking incident), I've noticed that Ironface166 - I believe his name's Anthony - is quie the authority on Heavy Metal trivia.

I was thinking that it'd be cool to have a sticky in the "Other Bands" section and in the "General" section where we could direct questions to Ironface166. Kind of like the "Ask Kevn DuBrow" sticky in the Quiet Riot section.

Being that I was a teen in the '80's, there are all kinds of trivial things that I could think of to discuss, and I'm sure Ironface166 would be able to answer a lot of my questions.

Anyway, it's just a thought.

Well I always go to ironface for answers to my music questions so it could be made like a sticky or an entire section who knows. Its all open now but I wouldnt disagree with it.

That would be a great idea if he had his own sticky where others can ask him questions.

:roll: Uh, proved you wrong again Skeez. :wink: Anyways, It's flattering and I appreciate the compliments. I just am hesitant about having my own little space here as I'm just a Mod and part of the community, not a VIP or anything. I could have heard the "public outcry" (*cough! cough! "Ego maniac!" *cough! glea in his sucess!" cough! :lol: ) if there was a section for me to answer questions ala "Ask Kevin Dubrow" when we didn't even have a Jake forum and I'm no celebrity.:lol: Well, the Jake thing is handled now and I have been getting alot of PMs asking for info (which is NEVER any problem btw), so I guess it couldn't hurt and since it wasn't my idea in the first place that "clears" me of any (*cough!) ego-charges! :P Just keep in mind that I have NEVER claimed to know EVERYTHING, so don't be too bummed if there are a few things I can't answer. :wink:

So, how do you wanna do this? Ask me questions, have me throw out obscure trivia on a regular basis? Have a game of "Iron Jeopardy" without the game show girl? :lol: (Where I ask the questions that you have to answer) Give me an idea and we can try something out, likely in the "Other Bands" forum. (Randy questions are always fine too. :wink: )

Thanks guys and gals.
Iron' (*currently jumping around "gleeing in my sucess!" :lol: Yawn.*)

Okay, this stuff isn't meant to be about me personally (or knowledge of guitar technique)- it's a metal/hard rock trivia thing (mainly 70's/80's, though I can go a bit further). :wink: But I'll answer it anyway-yes I play guitar, lots of the 80's techniques, mainly hard rock/metal, though I love playing acoustic and moody stuff too,probably considered an intermediete, been in bands, play for recreation now. That's all. :wink:

That would be Ace Frehley of Kiss. Happened in Lakeland, Florida and he wasn't grounded properly. He wrote the song "Shock Me" about it alledgedly.

:lol: Shouldn't be too long. I think this idea was to not so much test my knowledge and try to stump me (ala "Stump The Booey" on Stern) but for asking questions people don't know the answers to maybe. Either way. :wink:

Ok,maybe one more



What is the name of the member and the band that Ozzy toured with in which he tried to "out shock" Ozzy by peeing in public and kneels down to lap it up but Ozzy pushes him aside and laps it up for himself.

Nikki Sixx Of Motley Crue (though I've heard it said as Tommy Lee too). Also heard Ozzy snorted a line of ants to outshock them too.

If ironface would want to do this,I think that it's a really cool idea. 8) He's certainly worthy of it. He's proven it time and time again. :wink: :D

1. Skid Row

2. Never really analyzed it, but I'd guess it's about a guy's friend who is addicted to drugs maybe? :? Not a lyric decipherer. :lol:

3. David Lee Roth

4. Telecaster and Danelectro

5. Steve Stevens (Billy Idol)

alright Iron. Ive got a couple for you

1. what page number and the magazine that mentions Randy playing guitar with Ozzy and volume and edition number that was published on April 12th, 1987. Please dont forget to mention if the page was on the left or right.

2. What size shoe did Benjamin Orr of the Cars wear when he was 19 yrs old and did he put them on right foot first or left?? ( sorry for the 2 part question)

and last (and certainly the hardest)

3. Actually how many strings does a 5 string Bass have?

thanks for your time. I will be anxiously awaiting your answers (this will be interesting)

1. Guitar World-Volume 8-Edition 4, pgs 4, 6 and 28-60. :P (left and right sides of pages) :lol:

2. Not much of a foot fan, so I never analyzed the topic. I'll guess, size 10 and right. :lol:

3. I'll take a wild guess...umm..5? :?

Okay, now that that is out of the system, no more joke questions. :lol:

Try this one:
World-famous guitar accessory inventor who revolutionized guitars in the 80's was in a mid-80's metal band from Seattle.
1. Name the guy.
2. Name his band.
3. Name the two albums he played on.

And this:
Aside from Tony Iommi, name 3 guitarists that have lost parts of their fingers and continued their playing careers. (and this isn't counting Django Rheinhardt)
