One silly thing I like to share:

I was drawn to MF/KD by the shirt from 1993 tour. It has Don't Break The Oath cover on the front and back has King from In The Shadows. I bought that shirt 'cause it seemed cool, not knowing anything about the band. Then I heard Witche's Dance on the radio and hated it. I thought the singer was awful. I even thought that I don't want to wear that shirt anymore because of that. A while later i saw Nightmare Be Thy Name video and suddenly the singer was the coolest thing alive. That started everything.

PS. I still have that shirt...

That's a great shirt. I've seen it on eBay for about $12-$18, but I don't think they are official, probably just reproductions. Either way I want one. :king:

I honestly don't know. I've noticed when I do post things like that it's when I haven't taken my medicine for the day. I just never say that when I get confronted about it the next day because I know someone's gonna say I'm lying and that it's just an excuse. Seriously though, when I don't take my Concerta, my inhibitions are severely lowered. So I apologize.

Yeah, that's the one. Mine is actually grey now from all the years (it was early 1994 I bought this). I was fortunate enough to get it again in near mint condition. Very cool shirt!

I have started to use Google+. The one thing that bothers me is that there isn't King Diamond band page on Google+ but for example not THAT big bands like Therion and HammerFall have an official band pages. I would be very happy if someone could create an official King Diamond band page on Google+ so I could add it to my +1 communities. :P

Something kinda dumb, but it amused me a bit. I have a friend named Lesley that's like 2 years older than me, and she likes metal too. On Friday i had a chance to talk to her for a few minutes, so i asked if she knew any King Diamond. She said no so I had her listen to "Welcome Home." When it got to the vocals, she said "Oh hey, have you ever heard of Mercyful Fate? Their singer sounds like this guy." smile and nod, smile and nod...

LOADS of King Diamond fans have gotten into the band this way, through hearing Mercyful Fate first and then discovering King's own stuff.  I think it's cool!  :king:

That's what i did too! Well.. I hear Mercyful Fate, read the booklet saw King Diamond at his pic (In The Shadows) and then I just went on to google to search for him and found out that he had a solo band as well. When i realized he was singing like that in 2 bands i was soooooo excited!  \m/
