Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

Walking/jogging/running and calisthenics are simple, effective and require little or no initial monetary investment. And complexity and intensity can be escalated when necessary.

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I've never experienced that either. The snare is usually cutting cutting through.

I love stoner/doom rock and sludge. I've heard high on fire are absurdly loud, as well as Electric Wizard.
