I remember that most of the bands from that era ,wore make-up and had long hair with screaming guitars and most were awesome in concert.
The better looking the singer was, the more success the band had.
People also went to concerts more then, you could get a general admission ticket for about $15.00
I saw most of the bands listed below LIVE in concert-when I say most I mean 23 out of the 25, that is simply because in the 80's people supported bands by going and seeing them live and buying their CD's and merchandise.
CD's sold back then, not like today, since the internet has killed CD sales.
Most of the bands listed below are platinum sellers..over a million copies, it is a miracle now if someone sells a million copies of a CD.
The days of the local record stores are over...gone with the wind, but I am curious?
Do you remember any of these bands
- Guns-and Roses
- White Lion
- Great White
- Quiet Riot
- Def Leppard
- Twisted Sister
- LA Guns
- Mr. Big
- Damn Yankees
- Bullet Boys
Anyway the 80s are long gone but there are still many fans of 80s music
it will never die or never be that good again.
Thanks for stopping by
as always GOD-Bless-Us-All
I look forward to reading your comments about what 80s band you saw in concert or what your favorite 80s band is and why.
