No Metal of Honor

June 17, 1989

I'm in complete agreement with Lysa Jacobs' June 3 letter to The Times regarding your predictably negative review of the Queensryche concert ("Queensryche Avoids Worst Metal Cliches; Music Is Still Boring" by Mike Boehm, May 15).

It has always mystified me why The Times bothers to review heavy metal concerts at all. It is so obvious that your writers are completely clueless on the subject, and, as Lysa pointed out, they don't even like heavy metal.

In the past two years, every one of your heavy metal reviews has been negative (with the exception of Metallica, where you misidentified the vocalist as Dave Mustaine of Megadeth).

Perhaps a writer with some rudimentary knowledge of metal would lend some credibility to your reviews. Then we head-bangers could stop cringing at your ignorance and KNAC would quit ridiculing you.

Thanks for not reviewing Sunday's killer Cinderella/Winger/Kix concert. And, by the way, you neglected the umlauts on Queensryche.
