I was partial to a bit of Bon Jovi,Def Leppard,EUROPE(Cringe), etc in my Early teens but alas being from a wee Island off the West Coast of Scotland getting to gigs was a logistical nightmare! You have to remember this is all pre Internet and the flow of information was pretty poor back then? I like many of my friends used to get a regular fix of the BBC'S Friday Night Rock Show with legend TOMMY VANCE supplying the bullets swiftly followed up by Radio Clydes Rock show taking you into the wee hours with the likes of NAZARETH URIAH HEEP KING CRIMSON PURPLE etc etc... Caught AC DC at the Gasgow Appollo supported by Y&T on the For Those About To Rock Tour but that was about it for me on the gig front. I was lucky to have two Elder brothers with over 2000 LP's(Vinyls) at their disposal and a fresh Album dropping on a Monthly basis for years. Good times crap hair and wild spandex but that first Jovi Album was a belter....The intro into Runaway well It blew me away big time! Life was simple then methinks?
