    If people knew their net worths…they’d be furious. I’d respect Twisted Sister in a bar in Yonkers gettin money for one military guy who needs help than this.

    OK – Last post from me… then it’s back to listening to Iron Maiden “Live After Death” while I do my day job. 1) I’ve enjoyed sparing with you guys. Good points made by all, well taken, and understood. 2) If for some reason, you actually decide to come to the show, please find me. We can have a beer and talk music and life. We have way more in common than you realize. 3) If we should not cross paths again… I wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving and the rest of the holidaze… Chrismahanakwanzica, Festivus for the Rest of Us… etc…
    One last thing… SCREAM FOR ME LONG BEACH… SCREAM FOR ME!!!!!

      Based on your comments you seem like a guy that would rather be rocking than doing something like day trading for a living if you had it your way. Also just based on how well you handled yourself in these posts shows that you seem to be a much better guy than most of the types Wall Street gets such a bad reputation from. I can respect you for these things and hope Riffhanger has a good show since it sounds just like the kind of music I like. I just wish Eddie would endorse a compilation album of bands like Riffhanger that he gives his blessing to and give a percent of the sales to charity. It could be done more on pure hard rock/metal terms and potentially reach more people for both causes. In any case, good luck!
