Ok, I’ve been curious about this for awhile ... Am I the ONLY one who did NOT experience 80’s glam/pop metal music – during the 80’s - from a visual perspective? That is my main question lol. For various reasons I’m not going to go into now/here about all I had to go by most of the time (from the mid-80’s to early 90’s) was what I heard on the radio or on someone’s stereo, etc. Didn’t get to attend any (80’s band) concerts either. I think the magazines, etc. which covered that type of music were a little outside my reading interests then. Of course I get that it’s always been about the music first (or should be) but I’m saying the music was ALL I usually had to go by and what I heard is what influenced the few buying decisions I got to make as far as acquiring “new” music at the time. Ten years later I found out a lot of that music was part of some big scene I had no clue about that seemingly was more about the “look”. The real howler to me now is I was in Los Angeles in December ’87, happened to drive on Sunset Blvd. a few times (albeit during day or very late afternoon) and still had NO IDEA there was something going on! (Even funnier I found out much later on that was during the period Decline of Western Civilization II was being filmed!!!) For the most part the late 80’s bands I liked at the time were the ones who got lumped in with the “hair bands” but are not usually considered that way now (Tesla for one). However, it did shock the heck out of me to find out what some of these bands who did the songs I was into actually looked like during the 80’s – especially when I first got VH-1 Classic (when they still broadcast actual music videos most of the day) with my cable lineup and started catching up!
