What music did you like when you were young?

#70547 2 years, 11 months ago
It's ok to admit you were once a Backstreet Boys or Vanilla Ice fan, even though I never was
. I was a huge Beatlemaniac when I was a kid. I fell in love with The Beatles by listening to my brother's albums beginning when I was maybe 6 years old. He had those two big greatest hits sets. I never knew the name of them, I just called them the red one and the blue one. It's interesting to note that I got into their psychedelic stuff first (Lucy In The Sky has always been one of my favorite songs.) I begged my parents to take me to see the musical Beatlemania when I was 8, and that was the first year I attended Beatlefest in Chicago. John Lennon's murder the following year was the first time in my young life I ever had to deal with death. I learned about it from the newspaper the day after it happened. I'm surprised someone in my family hadn't told me about it earlier, but they were probably trying to shield me from the bad news. The next band I really got into was U2. The first concert I went to was U2 in 1985. I was in eighth grade, so it was a pretty big deal. I loved U2 until Achtung Baby came out. It wasn't long after that I started listening to the Dead.

wasn't into music much until middle school when I hung out with the wrong crowd for a while listening to rap, was a huge Eminem fan especially.

I'm so Grateful that I finally saw the light myself, I got pretty heavy in Floyd in high school (still love them) and then I just started listening to all sorts of classic rock. I soon had more Grateful Dead then anything else in my collection which was kind of by coicidence cause I just burned a shit load of others peoples stuff onto my computer and I ended up with a ton of Dead. I liked it a lot but it wasn't until my first show - 8/20/08 Ratdog (opening for the Allmans) that I actually got on the bus and wished I was on a lot sooner ever since....

My siblings were 10 and 12 years older than me, so I was hearing the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Woodstock and the other classics when they first came out. We lived in Rye, NY then and the I thought the Beatle's song was "Ticket to Rye", rather than "Ride".
I just kept listening to and finally inherited their albums as I moved into jr high and high school. Much better than the disco that was around at that time!
