Kevy Metal Origins
While attending college I was into Hard Rock and Heavy Metal music almost exclusively. And I enjoyed on occasion turning my stereo way up and rocking to the latest album I had at the time. One of my room mates played guitar and he would have some of his musician pals over for a few beers and they would play their instruments. This inspired an old dream from my teen years to reemerge and that dream was to learn the guitar, but I never convinced my parents into getting me an instrument and that dream eventually faded away as I moved on to other endeavors,
Finally, I was able to earn enough money to save up and purchase my first guitar and amp. Iron Man by Black Sabbath was the first thing I learned to play and I would crank up the amp's volume when I played. As a result of those humble beginnings as a beginner who loved to play loud, my other room mate coined the name Kevy Metal when referring to me and the name caught on amongst all the other guys living in the other apartments.
I have been using the name since those days in the early 1980's.
