    If you had to trace the final "kill shot", would all investigations lead back to Mr. Michaels (and his band of primping cross dressers)??......The ghey was undeniably crescendoing towards the later part of the decade... But, when he hit the scene, he REALLY took "fagging it up" to another level...

    Would Hard Rock/Heavy Metal have enjoyed more time in the spotlight had he not come on the scene & blown the doors off the gay bathhouse??

    If not, what did kill the "Heavy Metal" scene that was so prominent in the 80's?

    Lets not argue semantics... In the eyes of the non music world, that was the label that was placed on them. Don't be stupid

    There was a definitive "hard rock/heavy metal" scene (heavier than The Stones, not as heavy as Slayer) that began in the early 80's and was going strong up until the end of the decade...

    So were a lot of "metal" bands in that era .... Motely Crue even inspired someone to write a song about their gay look
