Metalhead Ned’s Throwback Thursday: Interviewing Mastodon [Video]

Another throwback Thursday! It's hard to believe that this interview is over 2 years old! Mastodon, Opeth, and Ghost were rocking at The Intersection in 2012 to a sold out crowd, and I was given the chance to interview Brann Dailor.

From what I was told, I had to wear the Mastodon mask during the interview...I later found out, that was false information.

Metalhead Ned’s First Hockey Experience [Video]

I was never really into sports as a young kid. I enjoyed going outside, sledding on hills, throwing snowballs, etc. Even my immediate family are not really sports people, so I didn't grow up with it.
