My parents didn't listen to music. I think it was Kiss because my brother liked them. My friend's parents had the Beatles , Stones, Cars, and other new wave/punk stuff on in the house all the time.
as for metal - it was the song Blackened by Metallica. Listening to college radio in the middle of the night, I hear this song, and it just got crazier as it went on. I was like What is this!!!?! I waited until end song ended and found out it was M and I went out the next day and purchased everything that was out there....

Blackened isn't given nearly enough praise. AJFA got me into Metallica, and helped get me into metal, and that opening was no small part of the process.

Blackened is given plenty of praise. Hard to find a Metallica who doesn't like that one. When I saw them in 2004 they opened the show with it and the crowd was singing along so loudly you couldn't even hear James at all. He just let the crowd do the chorus each time as well.

Well, I don't talk to fans as much as I read articles, and the music writers out there never seem to care about that one. All they want to talk about is MoP and RTL seems like.

f**k the music writers. The opinions of the actual fan is what's most important. Not the thoughts of someone who gets paid to be a "critic".

I mean fair, but doesn't mean I'm not gonna read criticism and other articles about music, just that I'll come away with my own opinions. :)

You heard the AJFJ bootleg yet?  It adds Jason’s bass.  Rather cruel of them to take away his bass to him and to Metallica fans.

Then again, Lars is a douchebag anyways so it’s no surprise.

I haven't heard it yet, though I never really even noticed the lack of bass until it was pointed out to me online somewhere. I'm sure I would've eventually, but those guitars are so huge and chunky in the first place that I figured the bass was probably just copying the riffs and was melded into the guitar sound. I also read somewhere that Jason was handed a copy of AJFJ once and, though flattered, didn't really think it was called for. Respected the original record too much to care whether his bass was audible or not.

The first rock single I bought was Quo's Rocking All Over The World.  When was that?  1977?  Then I was into ELO and Dire Straits as well, cos they were in the charts all the time.  Then in 1980 Motorhead released the Golden Years Live EP and that was swiftly followed by Back in Black and Whitesnake's Live . . . In the Heart of the City, and later that year I got Permanent Waves for £1.99 in a Christmas sale.  I think my parents cursed the day I bought that Motorhead EP :lol:
