From The Rink To The Pit: A BBG Exclusive Teaser
If you didn’t know, I’m a big metalhead. And to me, no sport is more metal than hockey. A few hockey players, mostly Finns, seem to agree. From Dan Boyle’s old radio show in Tampa Bay (Boyle’s Blue Line) to Jere Lehtinen partying with Pantera in 1999 to Toni Lydman playing shows with his band, metal and hockey just plain go together.
Because of this natural union, I’m happy to announce that Black & Blue & Gold will have exclusive interviews with a pair of noted hockey-loving metal musicians in the near future. Who, you ask? Hit the jump to find out!
On the left is Mastodon drummer and former Thrashers season ticket holder Brann Dailor! On the right is 3 Inches Of Blood vocalist and Canucks fan Cam Pipes (peep the patch on his vest)! Both men have toured the world with their bands, but still make time to go wild for their favorite sport.
