My first rock album was the Doors. My sister and I chipped in and bought it at our local Gambles store of all places. I was pretty young and didn't quite "get" the Doors, but I liked them when I got in my 20's...

I started my album collection around early Aerosmith in about 1973-74 when I was a freshman in high school. Basically have always been a classic rock fan with some interests in old Genesis and the like.

Just about died trying to bear through the disco era.

Liked the 80's rock quite a bit, but not quite hard enough for my taste, but chicks liked it. (whatever it took!) :)

I ended up being mostly an alternative/grunge guy. Loved Nirvanna and still listen to it! They have some amazing music. There's a world in this genre left for me to explore.

I do have that Metallica "Black" CD that I used to like a lot. I still throw it in once in a while for some attitude. Probably the onlly real "metal" I have.

Fun thread!

My first rock album was the Doors.

I think the first song I ever heard and recognized as rock was "Break On Through by the Doors".  I forgot to mention them but I was a big fan through HS and college.  I even remember back in college getting ****-faced on cheap wine and shouting out verses of Morrison poetry to the hookers and dealers that worked my block.

"Me and my mother and father - and a

grandmother and a grandfather - were driving through

the desert, at dawn, and a truck load of Indian

workers had either hit another car, or just - I don't

know what happened - but there were Indians scattered

all over the highway, bleeding..."

"I am the lizzard king, I can do anything."

The prostitutes just shook their heads and laughed.

Yes, "Mr. Mojo Risin" was an interesting cat!

"Texas Radio and the Big Beat" is now playing in my skull...

I still play the Doors at least once a month...on vinyl.

Ben, you have just been raised up onto a higher pedestal than your previous high pedestal!

Hey Ben - What's vinyl?

Grasshopper, vinyl is that mysterious material they used when "real" music was written and sung. In some quarters, it is still the best medium :<img src=:'> .

Nowadays, people use it to cover their truck seats. :p

Haven't read the thread front to back but how 'bout; Slayer, Death Angel and Anthrax? SOD  / MOD/ Billy Milano?. Suicidal Tendancies? All I wanted was a Pepsi. Primus? Monster Moagent?

Anyway....

I graduated HS in 1987 so the Rock staples of my misspent youth were:

Deep Purple, Sabbath, Zeppelin, Skynyrd, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd and Rush.  

But I was also heavy into Reggae - Marley, Tosh, Prince Far I, Yellowman, Black Uhuru, Steel Pulse, Shabba Ranks.

And I dabbled in Punk - Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols, PIL, Black Flag, Butthole Surfers.

In college it was a lot of classic blues but also bands like Fugazi, Bad Brains, Mudhoney, Helmet, Janes Addiction, etc.

Now it's mostly alt country, classic country, country rock, cow punk, and indie rock / alt rock.  But none of these are really good genre labels because the lines are so blurred.  

Lately I've been angrier at the world than usual and in the mood to wage war and break heads so I've been listening to more metal.

Circles I guess.

That's pretty damn scary....

Boy Dave, I just realized how old I am.  Briar graduated high school in 1987, I retired in 1988.  May be I should listen to that youthful music.  Someone mentioned Janis Joplin, I've always considered her more of a blues singer.  On second thought I'll stick with my older generation music.
