He would have been perfect. I mean what is better to prevent spontaneous combustion than a firefighter.

Apparently their album "Voracious Contempt was a huge influence in slam death metal"

Sadly, I knew someone who also fell to his death from a firetruck ladder (top was 100'). When you fall and hit the ladder on the way down multiple times, it's pretty gory. And this was during training.

/firefighters are worth every penny they are paid; remember that next time someone biatches about them "making too much"

Many these days never do.  Firefighter is a great job to rehearse during yourw 24hours off.

Lead singer of kamelot is also a firefighter

It's not irony if the guy died from internal bleeding while he was in a band called "Internal Bleeding". That's coincidence.

Not sure about where you are from, but here in Phoenix.....none complains they make "too much".

Early 90's I saw Simon Turner's Hawkwind.  Opening band was Hate Head.  They farking rocked, great opening band.  Bought the CD.  Probably the worst CD I've ever bought

/ Shot pool with Simon before the show
// Hella nice guy
/// hella bad breath, tried to stay 6 feet away at all times
//// hella great show
// How is this related?
// I'm old, running out of stories
// Hatehead, hatebreed, phfft

One of the first death metal bands I ever got into. Voracious Concept is a farking classic.
