What was your favorite band, musician, or album cover art from the 80s? Or, did you have any special vinyl LPs? Did you go to any concerts in the 80s, and if so, who did you see?
The Smiths! And later Morrissey. But I have to say that my all-time favorite vinyl was a tie between a printed "Lovecats" by the Cure and a glow-in-the-dark "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus.
The first concert (and only concert) I went to in the 80s was Rod Stewart when "Forever Young" came out. I had decided to take a mental health day from school (a case of DO NOT WANT on a Monday) and won tickets by calling into the radio station. I think the next concert after that was Social Distortion, but it might've been either 1989 or 1990, so it's a close call!
