Post Musicians who lie about their age....
This is a pretty common practice in rock and pop, but I have been noticing it happening in metal too. Case in point: Warrel Dane. According to Wikipedia, he's only 48, which means he's just three years older than Loomis, but that can't be right. I recall Dane and Shepard being at least 7-8 years older than Loomis. They used to refer to him as the baby of the band.

I'm pretty sure that when I met Dane back in 1999 he was already in his mid 30's or at least pushing it. Loomis looked much younger than him. If Dane was born in 69, that means he only would have been around 17-18 when Refuge Denied was recorded. It's not impossible, but somehow I doubt it

I think it's odd that musicians who aren't really in the public eye would lie about their age. Can anyone think of any other examples?

I dunno, Loomis looks pretty young for his age, so maybe there isn't much between them? He was what, 18 or 19 when he auditioned for Megadeth?

Dane looks around mid 20's or more in the Future Tense video from around that time though, I'll grant you that.

Just had a gander, Shepard is 56 so it makes sense that he would call Loomis the baby of the band.

I reckon Dane and Shepard are closer in age than Dane and Loomis.

Not metal I know, but for a while Dexter Holland from The Offspring wasn't allowing close up photos of himself in case "the kids" noticed how old he actually is.

Is Nicko still entitled to his state pension and bus pass as he's lived in the states for years?

Like how Danzig doesn't allow people to film or take pics of him at shows unless he authorises it. But in his case it's more to do with his bald patch I suspect, and Danzig doesn't lie about his age.
