8-bit Metal Mondays: He? She? Zuh?

I was into Life of Agony way back in the day when they first released River Runs Red. That album was just a tour-de-force of teen angst and legit anger that most grunge bands of the day could only wish to obtain. As was my fate, I wasn't able to see the band live until they had broken up and reformed for a reunion tour. I was thrilled to see them, and they were awesome! One thing did kind of cross my attention. lead singer Keith Caputo came off as real, well...... feminine. Like Mick Jaggar and Steven Tyler were looking at him and saying that dude looks like a lady.

Fast forward to today, and Keith proved me right. The man is taking a plunge very few ever take and is going in for gender reassignment. Yep, the guy's getting his schmekie replaced with a hoo haa. He's already calling himself a pre-op transsexual and is performing on stage with Life of Agony as a woman. I'm so not surprised at this turn. His past performances so hinted at this, and I say good for him. It takes some balls (soon to be replaced by equally gutsy ovaries) to admit to the world that you're becoming a woman in every facet possible.

I'd show some bleepy love for the soon-to-be lady, but Youtube doesn't have and 8-bit remixes of Life of Agony songs. Denied! In the meantime, here's one of my fave songs from them The Underground.
