    DC as large as life. I wonder what David looks like last thing at night, you know, when he takes the wig off & then the teeth come out & get put in the glass of water on the bedside table…

    Hmm, I believe Amorphis is from Finland. Not that it matters much but many of their songs are based on the national poem. Amorphis is a great band and as is Opeth.

    Here is the subscription cover:


    It can be worth noting that the article writer, and magazine chief editor, insisted that DC would do the photoshoot for the cover without sunglasses.
