Nothing, but nothing, winds me up like the music at the gym. I have a non-stop diet of hip-hop, which I loathe with a passion.

Yo. But I can't lift in 7/8. Actually, I have thought of taking in Alex Lifeson's solo project 'Victor' as there are some crushing tracks on that.

Crikey, I haven't heard their stuff for years. Just don't put their records backwards (do you remember Rob Halford and the accusations of satanism?)
