Gladiator Rocker Thor Fights Steroids And Dumb Lumberjacks

BELLINGHAM, Wash. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A self-proclaimed pioneer in the little-known genre of “Gladiator Rock” is combining heavy metal with heavy lifting.

His name is John Mikl “Thor” and he’s a former bodybuilding champion-turned musician who has spent his career fighting steroid use – as well as “a few dumb lumberjacks.”

In Thor’s words, “I came out during the hippie thing, with David Bowie as the thin, white alien and Alice Cooper and the like – so I’ve had to fight to be accepted, too.”

But when fans want to fight him, that’s where Thor draws the line.

As he puts it: “I even had one lumberjack in Quebec try to bend a sword with his teeth and he nearly lost them all, so he wanted to fight me.”

Thor adds: “But that’s not what my music’s about at all.”

His latest album is called Detestation of Musculation.
