Eh metalhead rocker guy playing guitar and head-banging on Dairy Road in Kahului: With an American flag propped next to you and red paint streaming down your face, you decided to set up a one-man metal show at the busiest intersection in Maui on Earth Day. What a strange and offbeat change of pace to the typical Earth Day scenery of mellow jams and tie-dyed hippie love. Why bring your power stance and screaming distorted guitar to us on this day? I say, who knows and who cares! I’m truly inspired by your 110 percent effort to rock your balls off. There’s no better way to celebrate the Earth than by celebrating the man that this crazy world made you. Rock on, American Hero!
