    That's just wrong.

    Once that Whole Thing® took off I had to actually start buying dental floss and checking IDs.

    I liked Bob Narley, too. He was gnarly.

    I've never wanted to be in a band more badly. Notice the crafty transition from piano to guitar. Dude is my spirit animal.

    If you are not from teh 80's era then you likely think the music is meh. Styles were lame, video's were too. Of course this is a guitar forum so guitarists of all eras can be enjoyed. Where general public is concerned, no way. Most younger people hate their parents music or trends, and most parents are no fans of their kids music or trends.

    Parachute pants, feathered hair styles and bangs, mullets, big hair 80's of men dressed like drag queens.... yep, that's how my kids and their friends described my era of music... not to mention the most common word to describe 80's that they used.. starts with a G and ends in Y. My son's girlfriend and their friends really really hated the fashion of shoulder pads for ladies that made them look like wide receivers in football. lol

    Given the demographic of TGP members, most are classic rock and 80's fans. They still play in bands doing covers of 40-60 yr old music tuned down a step so they can hit some notes, and wonder why "young peeps" are not showing up in droves like they are at DJ clubs... hint... yes it is the music.. yes it is how it is done, and yes, dad bands and grandpa bands with members checking out college age girls... to them there youngsters is a bit creepy.

    There's a number of guys on here that are huge Journey fans. One guy over in the pedals forum was a complete freak for Neal Schon... cover band rig and everything

    I f**king hate Journey
