~ANDREW: Owner/Radio Host~
Hey, I'm Andrew, from a frozen place called Michigan, now living in Arkansas with my heavy metal love, Lisa. I'm a 20-something who truly feels like he missed out on the best era of rock n' roll. I first started the Hair Metal Mansion back in May of 2007. I finally found something that I was really passionate about, something that made me feel like I belonged. I wanted to create a place for fans from all over to be able to come together, get to know each other and support the music they love.
My love for hard rock was immediately ignited after popping in AC/DC's "Back In Black" album and then from there, I went on to discover all of the big name hair/glam bands that made the era of decadence rock. Fast forward to December of 2008, I realized another dream of mine and that was to start my own radio show...I've been doing it ever since. Even though 80's hard rock and metal isn't what is "popular" in the mainstream these days, the goal of the Hair Metal Mansion is to prove that the music is still alive and always will be. Both the show & site continues to grow each day and look forward to rockin' with all of ya until the day I die.

Hi everyone my name is Joe. I am pleased to be added to the staff of Hair Metal Mansion. I am from Montclair, CA just about 30 miles east of Los Angeles. I have been following most of these bands since their inception in the early 1980’s. During that time I worked for a band that played the Sunset Strip circuit and saw a lot of them in the Los Angeles clubs. I started doing photography in that last 5 years. I was able to reconnect with a lot of friends from back then who are now playing at various places in So. California. I started shooting them and then was able to move towards shooting other more prominent Sunset Strip era bands. My wife and I are fortunate enough to be able to check out many bands these days. Mostly in So. California, we travel to Las Vegas for shows as well. Looking forward to sharing our adventures with the fans of the Hair Metal Mansion. Visit me at:
