HOS: When did you join the MetClub and when was born the idea for the local chapter?

Yavor Denev: I’ve joined the Metclub on 15th April 2004 and the idea of create a local bulgarian chapter was borned January/February 2008 – few months before the show in Bulgaria.

HOS: What is the main purpose of your local chapter?

Yavor Denev: The main purpose of the chapter is to unite all the fans of Metallica in Bulgaria. We are organizing lots of parties and concert visits.

HOS: Where are the craziest Metallica fans you’ve ever met?

Yavor Denev: The craziest Metallica fans are all over the world. And it depends what do you mean with “craziest”, ’cause for me “craziest” fans of Metallica are these fans who are ready to leave everything and go with Metallica to every part of the world.

HOS: Would you take the offer to work for Metallica if they ask you to?

Yavor Denev: Work for Metallica…- depends of the conditions, but why not? If they’re paying well…: Now in serious: The only way to accept an offer to work for Metallica – only if they (Metallica) come and ask me to, but I think that this will never happen. I feel really happy as a fan and I don’t want this magic to disappear.

HOS: If it was up to you what would you change in the live performance of Metallica?

Yavor Denev: If it was up to me….so you’re saying me if I was James or Lars,no…what would I change??? I think that the fans are missing too much the solos and the medleys in the live performances of Metallica.

HOS: What attendances do you give for the local chapter and its development and popularization? And for the website and all the members of your local chapter?

Yavor Denev: I feel so happy that I have 5-6 persons right next to me helping me with the popularization of the club and doing many,many things for the club just because they have Metallica right into their hearts. And as a result we’re having a wonderful website updated with the latest news, lots of interviews with very interesting people… The forum of the site is having yet over 170 users. Besides we’re organizing lots of parties promoting the band, we organize too lots of visits of concerts of Metallica…and to resume – it’s cool to be part of HOS.

Hi, do you have contacts for Metclubs in Poland, Switzerland and the Czech Republic? I am traveling from Australia and I am looking for some contacts.

Thanks, Faz
