Very much, 'specially the old stuff. Deep Purple, Hawkwind, Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, early Black Sabbath (Paranoid & Iron man rule), Blue Oyster Cult aint bad either.
Funny, but for me, I like heavy metal for the same reason I like a lot of folk music. At its heart its a home grown music--not necessarily complex or polished, although the technical ability of some of the players is astounding. Most of these guys formed their style and vision alone in their bedrooms and garages and hacked out their careers in dives on the roads.
