Honestly, these threads are one of the big reasons I hang out here. I love it when people talk about what they like, not so much when they talk about what they don't like.As always with these threads, huge thanks to everyone for the terrific recommendations, both forgotten gems and undiscovered treasures!
I'm trying to think of what I didn't like.... dunno
This is exactly how I feel, but I usually hesitate to post in these threads because of the negativity. I liked it all.The 80s were effing awesome, especially for rock and metal fans. Quiet Riot was the first metal band to reach Billboard's #1, AC/DC and Van Halen got new front men, Metallica and GnR became household names, Queen brought the house down at Live Aid, Ronnie James Dio and David Lee Roth formed super groups, Living Colour's "Vivid" and Satriani's "Surfing with the Alien" were released. And so on and so on and so on. It was an awesome time to be a young rock and metal fan, and to start playing guitar.
even though my bands at this time were “originals” I made sure we played Scene of a Perfect Crime. This was philly (not Southern California) , so pretty sure everyone assumed it was one of oursI still recall my first exposure to this band, this song and video on Night Flight on the USA network:
I saw Tiffany live. I took my sister for her birthday. Actually was a good show...she could really song and had a top notch band. Only downside was screaming of prepubescent girls piercing my eardrums.Is this the thread where people pretend they listened to better music in the 80s, or is this where people are honest?
