    Exclamation Phobias

    I was talking to a friend from this board about a certain fear and also had the change to discuss the same subject with another friend from Megadeth.com.

    Phobias - Do you have any?

    Copy and paste as many that affect your daily lives.

    Some have curious names, some of these are funny; most of them are not. All of them are real.
    Wolfgang Van Halen - "I love being a bass player. Its just me and Al a groove section. Just boom, boom, boom, and were good". GW
    Edward Van Halen - "What is next for Wolf is the next record and the next tour. Hes no different than I am. Music is his life. If he goes back to school, Ill probably go with him. GC
