Hello all, I'm new here, and I've been an Arlo fan for 20 years. My friend drug me to an Arlo concert 20 years ago and at the time I had never heard of him but I didnt have anything better to do that night so I went, even though back then, I was 18 and mostly into heavy metal and classic rock, and didnt think I'd dig Arlo's stuff at all. It was an outdoor show in Eden Park in Cincinnati OH on May 18th 1991, and I've been a fan ever since. I got to meet Arlo after the show and get his autograph, and he was as cool as can be. Over the last 20 years I've snatched up every Arlo record I could find, mostly at yard sales and flea markets, and the hunt continues! I've tried to get into Bob Dylan, but for some reason he just doesnt do much for me, when I need my folk fix, I spin Hobo's Lullaby!

Welcome aboard! Your story sounds very similar to mine as well... Nice to have another metalhead Arlo fan around. Growing up my walls were littered with Zeppelin posters... :)

Ha! You sound like my kinda guy, Zep will always be my first love, and metal is pretty much my way of life, but a mans gotta have his guilty pleasures, and mine are Arlo and The Bee Gees lol.

Btw, Outlasting The Blues is my personal favorite of Arlo's! Son of the Wind, not so much...

Just saw Plant & the Band of Joy about a month ago! Great show...

Thanx for the warm welcome pals :D I saw plant about 20 years ago on the Manic Nirvana tour and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. I tried to make it over the pond to see the Zep reunion in 2007 but I couldnt find tickets, and now I've got the same problem with Arlo, he's playin in my neck of the woods on the 13th but I think it's sold out. :(

Folk music, Arlo, "silly?" This is serious stuff!!! Your feelings are valid and you are gonna have one of the better nights you're ever likely to have. I'm way overdue, and it's not even been a year......sigh.....Have a great time and say hello for me :D

Enjoy!
