Brummie of the Year 2008 – Johnny Doom

Home Of Metal

Mr Doom “Kerrang Radio DJ and full time loser” (according to his MySpace) has triumphed. 31% (879 Votes) was enough to pip Destroyers powerhouse Paul Murphy (23%, 652 Votes) to our famous trophy.

Johnny, once of the very loud band Doom, has been providing a voice for metal — not only in the wee small hours on Kerrang Radio, but as part of the Home of Metal team. Metal needs a voice, one that can discuss the “merits of cut n paste aesthetics and early flyer artwork” and well as go “URRRGHR URRH RUGGGH” or whatever metal vocalists get up to these days.

A leather and denim clad congratulations to Johnny Doom, who wins the all new Brummie of the Year trophy (that has last year’s winner John Tighe‘s hair encased in it), and lashings of kudos (but no actual money or anything like that).
