in the 60s i used to listen to my older brother's 45s on a small mono record player. stuff like the beatles, stones, traffic.
the first band i seriously got into, that i started buying their records.[well my mum paid for them!] was SLADE.
i got into the whole british glam thing. when i hear americans going on about glam they talke about crue and others but they're not glam imo.
stuff like bowie, bolan, the sweet, slade, suzi quatro, wizzard, gary glitter.
the first lp was slade alive. thats the only live album i've ever gotten into.
slade were good as they exposed me to a heavier guitar sound. songs like take me ba'k 'ome for instance. plus the live lp has some very heavy stuff on it.
then i bought the first queen lp. back then the band were considered to be heavy rock, and this one and the one after were just that.
the guitar was amazing, and i loved all the vocals.
i've ended up getting all their lps over the yrs. as far as i was concerned queen were IT!
got into thin lizzy and ufo quite a bit too.
then once queen ended there wasn't any other band that did anything for me. that was until i heard king's x.
they sounded so different at the time. not so much if you go back to listen to their songs today, but back then they were unique in their sound.
so i now have all their albums.
my favourite type of music is classic hard rock. i love great guitar solos.
have tried listening to today's music but i've heard it all before unfortunately.
