As a Kid...

The Eagles - The Long Run
Deep Purple - Machinehead (my very first Vinyl LP)
Rush - Moving Pictures
Rush - Subdivisions
ACDC - Back in Black
Boston - Boston
Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic
ELO - Out of the Blue
Foreigner - Foreigner 4
Tears for Fears - Songs from the Big Chair


Later in Life (uni and just beyond) ...

Yes - 90125
Steely Dan - Aja
The Smithereens - Green Thoughts (my very first CD)
Crowded House - Crowded House
Yellowjackets - The Spin
Pink Floyd - The Division Bell
Joe Jackson - The Collection
Genesis - Genesis
The Police - Synchronicity
John Mellenkamp - American Fool



Since then, it's been a REAL mixed bag and can't say that I've dwelled on any particular album... I've listened to literally 100's...
This includes rediscovering a LOT of great artists who were around when I was young, but that I didn't listen to as a kid...

One thing that I am noticing here, is that my play list, growing up in America, is not that different from my Aussie friends. Most of the music we all listened to was British, American, and Australian (and little else).

so true. The 60s and 70s was all American and British, apart from the Easybeats from here (and Scotland hehe). Music really became universal in those days. We always had an inferiority complex down under,we assumed everything from overseas was better.......

until.........the 80s. Then,we realised OUR music was better than most of the drivel from overseas. ACDC, Cold Chisel,Angels,Skyhooks,LRB,Noiseworks,INXS, Divinyls, Rose Tatoo,Hoodoo Gurus, Mental As Anything.....was so much more interesting than the disco, hair metal and haircut posers from the UK and USA. Live rock was alive in all the pubs, and we got some great overseas tours, Canned Heat, Eric Burden's Animals, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Mick Taylor and John McVie !!!!! in pubs, man it was a great time to get into drinking that's fer sure :drinkingbuddies:

Speaking of Eric Burden... Back when I still lived in America, I used to work with a British fellow who's babysitter when he was a young toddler, was none other than Eric Burden ... Eric was like 14 or 15 at the time... I find that pretty cool
