So the new High School 101 teacher's dad is Eric Adams, the lead singer of Manowar. I found this out because my mom works at the school and the guy told her. I've never heard of Manowar before, are they really cheesy or are they good? Discuss people you know that are famous musicians.

They went in the Guiness Book of Records in 94 for loudest band on Earth. They are cheesy, but still a very good band.

I could never get into them, but that's so awesome that the lead singer's son teaches at your school!

Can cheesy not be good? It's definitely cheesy, but not unenjoyable.

Am I the only one who finds it kind of funny that the singer of a band as over-the-top and bombastic as Manowar has a son with a job as innocuous as English teacher?

Manowar are great. All their songs are about war, honor, glory, bravery, loyalty, or bragging about how awesome they are.

LOL. I seriously thought that while they're the loudest band on earth, they looked very stupid and gay to me. Maybe it was all that leather. Who knows right?

That's because you are not true metal.

All wimps and posers must leave this thread immediately. It's too True for you.

Lol at this entire thread,espicially the post above me. I could never get into Manowar just because it's not my taste but there is no denying that they are fabulous musicians. I almost have a story like this. The son of famous baseball player Carlton Fisk was my Creative Writing teacher but I think yours is much cooler :thumb:

You should walk into class wearing a leotard and carrying a battleaxe. I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

He's not an English teacher. He's a high school 101 teacher, it's kind of like an introduction to high school class, you learn organization, where the nurse is etc. By the way Eric Adams is a stage name. His real last name is Ammarillo or something.

Also, apparently his son doesn't even like metal that much.

But this is Manowar. We have no problem with referring to everything we like as True.

Way to be on subject.

Manowars great. I find their over-the-top cheesiness to be incredibly cool. I feel like breaking out a saber every time I listen to them.

I was talking to my mom about the teacher who is the son of Eric Adams. It turns out Eric Adams real name is Lou Maurillo. No wonder he changed it.

Eric Adams is much more metal. If Vikings were alive today, they would be named like that.

It's funny how very rarely to people ever get born with really cool names. They have to change them. Exceptions to the rule include Eddie Van Halen, Vincent Price, and Clive Barker.

Mayhem drummer Hellhammer is the only metal artist who has a cooler real name than his stage one.
His name is Jan Axel von Bloomberg.
How cool is that!?

Scandinavians do tend to have cool names. Germanic names in general are cool.

I think it's Jan Axel von Blomberg and to me it sounds like a really normal and it doesn't sound very cool at all. :p Must be my Germanic surroundings, I suppose.

There is none.
