I think I was a couple of years before you but I know the time period. I had the ripped jeans but that was about it. Poison, Van Halen and Motley Crue were all the rage but Metallica was (and still is!) way better. :twisted: AC/DC too. On the lighter side, The Cars, REO Speedwagon and Journey all rocked.

Being born in '82 makes you young enough to be my daughter. Uff Da. And I'm not THAT old. :shock:

Thanks for making really feel like an old fart !!! :lol: I guess there is no point in talking about the Beatles and 8-Track tapes ! I actually saw the Beatles in concert at the Indiana State Fair in 1965 when I was 11 yrs. old and Three Dog Night in concert at Ball State U. on my 16th birthday in 1970 ! And I still don't need a cane or motorized wheelchair to run my traps !!! :wink: Actually, trapping again after more than a 30 yr. absence has made me considerably younger, not to mention improve my physical condition noticeably ! :)

Wow... remembering back to the good ole days. All I ever wanted back then was chicks that dig leather jackets and long hair! Man you really stirred the cobwebs with this post. My favorite "hair band" was, still is, and will always be, Whitesnake. Motley Crue is a verrry close second though. Excuse me while I reminicse.......

Thanks for the fun thread you guys ! Here is a good one as I travel back down memory lane. I got to see "Whitesnake" twice while I was stationed in Germany and still think they are as as good a live band as any I've had the pleasure of seeing. The first time was in early'83 and Ozzy Osborne and his band opened for them ! That concert was in Dusseldorf and the second time I saw them was in '85 in Essen and a band named "Blackfoot" opened for them. Thanks for the memories ! :D

Hair bands all the way! I saw Motley Crue open for Ozzy in `83. I saw nearly every metal/hard rock band that came thru Kansas City from `80 to `85 plus a few others. I still have all ticket stubs and my concert jerseys/ T`s.

I mainly listen to jazz now, it plays all night on KPR while I work 11p.m. til 7a.m.

The first car phone I saw was my 8th grade sub-teacher. A home size rotary dial in the hand set, we thought this guy was something special!! I guess at the time it was, 1978.

Heck, Atari was high-tech... I remember playing Pong with my brother. :roll:

I also remember playing Oregon Trail in grade school... on a teletype machine... if that doesn't date me I don't know what does. Been playing around on the internet since about 1988... those were the days, let me tell ya, things have changed a tad bit in that time. :D

I had a friend who was an electronics geek... he had a phone in his van, I think it was around 1980 or so... that was something.
