I keep waiting for the drummer to drop a stick....
My ancestor was a pirate, William Dampier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
, he wrote a couple books/journals that I have, mind blowing stories. Half the shit he wrote for them, he took out because there was so much incriminating evidence. After he spent a few years plundering and pillaging, he returned to England where the Royal Navy decided he had too much information to lock him up, so they made him commander of a 26-gun ship.
Since it was considered bad luck to have a woman on board a ship back then, he used to tow a smaller ship behind him that was full of just women and booze.
Eventually, I'd like to write a concept album based on his books/story. It shall indeed be pirate metal.
