HOS: Where are the craziest Metallica fans you’ve ever met?
All the Metallica fans are crazy!!!
HOS: Have you ever met some of the guys in person and what was the first thing in you mind when you saw them?
I have the chance to met them several times and each time I told to my mind ｫUs Metallica fans we are very lucky!!!ｻ Metallica it’s a big family !
HOS: Would you take the offer to work for Metallica if they ask you to?
When I saw Metallica at Taratata tv show in 2009 I worked for the group during all the day. It was very cool and a great experience but only one time. It’s not my place behind the stage…my place is in the audience with the other fuckin’ crazy fans!
HOS: You must explain what is Metallica to your 5 year old kid, how will you do that?
When I went to the show at Bercy with my son in April 2009 a big deal happened at the end of the show just before seek and destroy. James asked to light the arena as each night and just before Seek and Destroy he asked to my son his age!!! Him like me we were panic and we didn’t answer to James! I’ve got the photos of this moment! When I have the chance to met them at Nimes in July 7 2009 I explain this moment to the members and asked them to write a word for my son. He practice guitar and I took a photo of him with his guitar and James wrote to my son ｫDear Marvin, keep playing, I’ll see you on stage!!!ｻ My son is 8 years old and he has a word from each member of Metallica above his bed !!!
HOS: When did you join the MetClub and when was born the idea for the local chapter?
I joined the fan-club in April 25 1993 and my number is 3091. The idea to create my own local chapter was born in 2005. But I decided to stop it more than a year ago and it didn’t exist anymore but the webzine continued.
HOS: What is the main purpose of your local chapter?
The webzine is original and very complete I think we were the only in the world to purpose a magazine with 52 color pages.
HOS: Do you know something for Bulgaria? Would you say something special to the members of HOS?
Yes I know the local chapter of Bulgaria and congratulations for your work. I know what it is to work in a local chapter and it’s not easy to enjoy every fans. I love the people who have a passion and Metallica is a beautiful passion.
