Dream of a Lifetime coming true!

Heading off to the Metallica concert. The band which we grew up listening to in college and the men whom we idolize will be out there on stage today. I don't know how will I react when I see James Hetfield, in flesh and bones belting out the hits and Kirk Hammleet driving his guitar insane and Lars Ulrich beating the percussions to glory. Phew! I feel like a child. Will update once I'm back from the show! A big day in the lives of metalheads in India! Off to Neverland.

Happy Diwali :)

India vs China-Race to the top of the world

While the western world is lamenting over the lack of growth in the economy, the story in Asia seems to be more sanguine than it has ever been. Being a keen observer of the developments in China, I feel quite fascinated with the usual India vs China topic.

Though I no more play music, exploring "new" music is something I do everyday and dwelling more into the music of the bands of which I had heard one or two songs is something I remain perenially obsessed with.If you're a great fan of alternative/new wave music of the 80s or want to check out some good bands apart from the usual stuff, The Cure, The Smiths,Crowded house, INXS, When in Rome,Eurthymics, Alphaville are some of the bands you need to have in your collection.
