Bad. Very bad. Very very very bad.
Chorus on everything you can put chorus on.
Triumph Trident T160, Triumph Bonneville 750, Pen Pals in the USA, hey, let's move to America!
Tired of guitar music. Love this New Wave dance/alternative music! Depeche Mode, OMD, Haircut 100, Duran Duran, Madness, English Beat...
University and a lot of beer. Met my wife.
Great! I was 13 in '84, my sisters took me to see the Dead Kennedy's..... Awesome!
Good morning ya'll! Maybe I'm just an old dude but for me...80's very very good! Rush Moving Pictures, Peter Gabriel So, Roxy Music Avalon, Talking Heads Speaking In Tongues, Police Ghost In The Machine, At least Four Halen albums, The Clash Combat Rock, Stray Cats Built For Speed (amongst others), Yes 90125, Tears For Fears, Simple Minds...it really goes on and on and on I would leave out so many in just the rock/pop category! Such an incredibly fun, low-drama, creative, high musicianship era for music.
I'll leave ya with an 80's tunes that I have played more times around Texas dance halls than I can count and still love it (and always fills the floor)
For some reason I don't remember the '80s...
I spent most of the 80s in my teens.
Had a blast.
The area I grew up in was a little behind the times so we had a sort of 70s/80s mashup going on.
Roller skating to AC/DC and the like. No disco.
Dance parties at the local hall.
Gravel pit/bush parties.
Side road "tours".
All nighters at the drive in.
Some great songs. Terrible guitars, still gigging for a living. Orange Roland Cubes which still sound great.
The era of excess and hedonism.
Androgynous men with long hair and girls in warpaint with haicuts like rat`s nests.
Mostly disposable music and artifical overprocessed sounding guitars.
First love, first gigs, first job. Great time for me.
Cortina 67 GT!
Partying all night long!
First real job!
Started own business!
Met my wife!
What? No, you just heard the wrong stuff.
The 80ies were sooo inspiring with so many great bands:
Too bad, if that wasn't your taste
Stray Cats. University. First decent guitar- made in Japan Squier Strat lake placid blue. How I wished I still owned that guitar? What a young fool I was
18 hour days, 6-7 days a week. It was just a blur.
Was pretty young. Grew up listening to dad's music collection...Beatles, Byrds, Clapton, Queen, Rush, Springsteen, Satriani, Stones etc.
Bought my first album with my own money...Tom Cochrane and Red Rider's Victory Day.
Eventually Guns N Roses came along.
Michael Jackson, The Smiths, Madonna, ...
My student years...
Some kind of recklessness...
Playing guitars in bands, building my first amps...
Punk / New Wave was the craze, along with Hard Rock, Reggae, Baba-Cool musics...
