Full of good times and good food, we headed back to the area by the award show and parted ways for the time being. Ashley and I prepared to head over to the Golden Gods and eventually met up with Trivium band and crew and management and label. The concept of the “Golden God Awards” is one that originated in the U.K. with our friends at Metal Hammer magazine. The Golden Gods in the U.K. is essentially primarily for all things Metal. It’s an awards show with performances and readers and bands and celebrities who all gather once a year to pay tribute to artists who deserve tribute according to the readership. Metal Hammer U.K. is one of my personal favorite magazines on Earth – it’s always stuck to it’s guns of being whole-heartedly metal. It’ll delve here and there around the Metal-genre, but is always at heart… about the lifestyle of Metal.

The next morning, Ashley and I met up with Corey and Stephanie Taylor to head over to the the venue for a soundcheck. What’s insane about my life (well – another one of the many insane things) is that I can even write that. Yeah – I was heading over to the Nokia Theater to rehearse a Metallica song with the singer of Slipknot/Stonesour and the singer/guitarist of Machine Head. Not many food-nerd/comic book kids/video game geeks/band-dudes can say that.
