OK, so I'm actually more into music now than when I was a teen...
That said, it's not quite the same.
The early '80s.
Bowie fantic to the core... but there was so much more: Led Zep, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Television, Sex Pistols... for the lead in...
Then postpunk, which is basically the forerunner to the alternative/indie music we champion today. It was all brand new!
The Bunnymen at the Royal Albert Hall... omg... I saw this! (in Hollywood, CA) This >> recent show, obv
Pixies, REM, Madonna, My Bloody Valentine... etc
The Goth nightclubs...
No Question: the best era for music ever.
But I'm open to opposing opinions, however wrong they might be.
(If this seems like a 'lucky me, however old, unlucky you' thread... time to be objective, eh)
Lay it on me.
