Oh gosh, some of these bands, I'd forgotten about them! I remember AC/DC was my first album that I bought and actually laid back and listened to without talking. I bought Back in Black and hung out with my friend and her big brother and boy, did I think I was cool. That was my hang out music.

Then I went to Duran Duran and the whole classic MTV bit - INXS, The Cars, Simple Minds, Howard Jones, U2. Then I went hair band and bought everything Motley Crue and Poison made, then I just listened to about anything. Oh, drinking music was usually The Eagles. We all sang it as loud as we could. I guess we thought people wanted to hear us!

Hey Jennifer--

I remember seeing the Eagles live in concert... but when I did (1972) they were the opening act for Procul Harum (Whiter Shade of Pale, Conquistador)!

Skew-- The year 1972 was my "concert summer". I saw everyone who played Los Angeles. These included Jethro Tull, ELP (Emerson, Lake and Palmer for you younger chicks), Neil Diamond, the Kinks to name a few.

Feeling very old right now . . . (just Reelin' in the Years)

Skew! Yes, Lady Marmalade! I LOVED that song! and Do the Hustle and Donna Summers, Gloria Gaynor - Where's my platform shoes?

My first concert was Parliament / Funkadelics - They brought the Mothership down! I was only 6 but you couldn't tell me I wasn't a true funkateer!

Gloryhallastupid -Pin the tail on tha Funky!

Talking Good topic....

Top three by a longshot: U2 (early works), The Cure, and The Smiths.

Other music that I loved: New Order, Depeche Mode, REM, Midnight Oil, INXS, Violent Femmes, Psychadelic Furs, Oingo Boingo, Sisters of Mercy, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Jane's Addiction, the Clash, and of course a little punk like the Sex Pistols, Ramones, Husker Du, The Dead Kennedys, Butthole Surfers... thats all I can think of off the top of my head.

Toto was my first album. (I still don't know what the **** "99" was all about)
My sister and I saw Eric Clapton in Montreal years ago. He's so cool.
I loved Jethro Tull. I think it's the pianist that recently had a sex change. But he still looks the same.

mauvais : i think i love all your 80's alternative have been searching for shriekback, and "cherry came too" from jesus and mary chain to no avail.

hahahahaha I had a pair of red MC Hammer pants with a matching red top "Can't Touch This"

BTW I went to the simulcast of Prince's opening night concert in LA on Monday night. That was one of the BEST concerts I have ever seen. That man knows he is talented. I couldn't help but draw comparisons to Michael Jackson. In the 70s/80s, MJ was "normal" and Prince was weird. Now, twenty years later, they have totally switched. Prince's performance / attitude / confidence just showed how far off MJ has really fallen.

Oh yeah, I didn't know who the Eagles were until 2 years ago. My boss put me out of his office cause I didn't know anything about them.

MC Hammer pants!

I had two-tone Rockabilly/punk hairdo, black minis with pointy toe buckle boots look, followed by the victorian goth look.... now I look like a retro film noir femme... with my long slim black skirts, fitted tops, funky shoes and little bags...... and let us not forget my Edith Prickley like obsession with leopard print!

If Prince comes to town I am definetely going - he is one of DH idols!

omigosh! what a hair visual! I wore the blue black hair, sometimes with the blue sparkles in it. Oh yeah, and way too white face powder and Certainly Red lipstick so my dark hair and eyebrows would contrast with the face and lips. I look at pics now and just crack up.
