despite my love of Kai Hansen, i've never owned a single Gamma Ray album, just a couple of their songs off of iTunes.
and for the record, Dio era is far more interesting than Ozzy era. one i listen to help me fall asleep, the other i listen to while i'm working on gaming stuff or playing with soil chemistry.
I used to have Pink Bubbles Go Ape. I gave it to a friend.
Helloween is supposed to be touring the states soon, according to a booker contact I have.
