Until I write my book, I give you 2Fast2Die …
Launched in July 2010 by veteran music journalist and rock-n-roll lifer, David “Metal Dave” Glessner, 2Fast2Die is named after the combined titles of Motley Crue’s “Too Fast for Love” and the Ramones’ “Too Tough to Die,” (two of Dave’s favorite bands).

Bio as published in Classic Rock magazine
A veteran music journalist, David Glessner long ago sold his soul to KISS and Iron Maiden (his mum was not amused). As an aspiring reporter, Glessner bargained his first interview with former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Jake E. Lee in exchange for a cigarette. Countless beers later, Glessner has sung on stage with Poison and Buckcherry, and taken full advantage of backstage hospitality wherever and whenever possible. As a resident of Austin, Texas, Glessner has survived decades of South By Southwest music marathons, hosted a local music television show and recorded at Willie Nelson’s studio with Ginger of Wildhearts fame.
