The Delano Headbangers
are based on my brother, Dylan Vittetoe.
Dylan is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to heavy metal music. Although I do not necessarily share his
taste, I respect the knowledge that he has ascertained on the subject. The primary logo is based on the same model
of guitar as Kerry King, of one of his favorite bands, Slayer. The secondary logo is the musical notation of
the opening guitar riff to Iron Man
by Black Sabbath. Almost equal to his
expertise of music is his knowledge of hockey.
Like our dad, he is an avid fan of the St. Louis Blues and has made
several trips over the years to watch them play. He also played goalie in our roller hockey
league during middle school. He always
wanted to back into it, especially after I started playing again, but it never
materialized until recently. Having
purchased a new set of equipment, I helped him play on ice for the first
time. The occasion far exceeded my
expectations, and hopefully it becomes a regular event. The number 85 is for his hockey number and
year of birth.
