Alex is the personification of driven, and the surrogate of the metal fraternity’s loyalty. During his travels, he documented the journey for those of us who have ever dared to dream. Alex’s dream was to go to Germany and hang out with his heavy metal brethren, a mission that was destined to succeed, but was wrought with its own specific challenges. For these challenges to be overcome, he enlisted the aid of several friends from overseas; fellow metallers who were more than willing to help out their “brother from another mother”. Is there any doubt that (metal) music is THE universal language? I don’t think so, but you could ask a Martian the next time you see one!
Anyway…I suppose that there are at least two lessons in this story (if you find anymore, keep it to yourself). First, never be afraid to act on your dreams (unless your dreams involve you wearing a meat shirt inside a lion’s cage). Second, never ever take what you have for granted. Thank you, Alex, for the reminder…and thank you all for listening!
Follow your dreams!!!
