Meet Brandon Karr, a 32 year old from Cincinnati, OH.
“Inspired by the late 90's Family Values Tour concert series, I was wanting to create a list of music that honored Wayne Static (Front Man for Static-X) after his passing. I couldn't find one, so I created this list while adding other bands from the different tours.”
