    My mother took me to a Santana concert at an outdoor theater in Ohio when I was 12 years old, and a few others like CSNY, The Carpenters and Beach Boys, then in 1975 at 15, I went to the first concert 'on my own' with some friends-- Blue Öyster Cult in Akron Ohio and Rush a few weeks after that. By the end of high school, having worked at the Coliseum in Richfield ( former home of the Cavs ) for 2 years, I've seen almost every rock band from that era - Aerosmith and ACDC to Zappa and Led Zeppelin, so all that stuff brings back tons of memories for me. ( now when you listen to "Classic Rock" stations, you know what audience they're targeting.



    I've always liked jazz fusion too. Al D, Steve Gadd, Stanley C, Larry C, Rit , Spyro, Hiroshima,Tom Scott, Chick Corea

    This was the start of my own 'business' :26: that lasted several years.

    My best friend's older brother was in the Army stationed in Germany, and he used to cruise up to Amsterdam and buy kilos of hashish then mailed it back to us, right to his house, around a half kilo at a time. All different kinds of killer Lebonese, Afghani, Nepalese - you name it we were selling little grams in foil for $5 a piece. The real good old days.

    I saw Boston open for Black Sabbath in 78.

    there was a period of time when we had an over abundant supply of Lebanese blonde hash; it was about 1" thick slabs with the with the burlap markings impressed into both sides. It lasted for weeks & it got to the point that a I had what I thought was gonna be a permanent sore throat from smoking so much hash. I was so glad when that shit was all smoked up & gone.

    Songs that remind me of my youth? Lots of stuff from The Cars (Candy-O), The Clash (ANYTHING that Mick Jones had a hand in).

    When I got older and was in the Navy, Aerosmith was one of my favorites, but my absolute favorite was Steppenwolf. I remember being stationed in Memphis in the mid 80's, and Steppenwolf came to Memphis, but they had to cancel their concert because the lead singer was sick.

    HOWEVER........................

    A couple of months later, (and apparently after a lot of letters from military people), Steppenwolf decided to do a concert on the base for all the Navy people there. Best part? The concert I was going to go to in Memphis was 30 or 40 bucks, and when they cancelled, I got my money back. When they did the concert on the base a month or so later? They did the concert for 5 bucks a head. I got to stand right in front of the stage, and it was an EXCELLENT concert. My 2 favorite songs?
