@Matt  I was wasn’t lucky enough to get my hands on a vinyl copy of Thriller but I wore the cassette out.

@Chris What a great album. 

I’ve been doing some digging through my old records and found another that could have been my first…

Monkees was my first live show.  If you don’t count Sesame Street Live.

When I first got into music we just bought singles,as they were always released before the album,and quite often the single was the best or in some cases the only good song on the album. Having said that,I have to think that the first album I ever bought was Meet The Beatles.

Van Halen during the 1984 tour was my first concert. My friend's mom took us. My parents didn't know until it was too late, because they definitely wouldn't have allowed it.

After that it was shit like The Smothers Brothers in LA at a studio (I had know idea who the Hell they were), Stryper, Amy Grant, and such until I eventually got to see bands I liked again. When I got old enough to drive (driving age was 15 in Mississippi at the time), my horizons expanded a lot, since I could drive to places like Memphis and New Orleans (drinking age in LA was 18 at the time) to see bands like the Beastie Boys, Pink Floyd, KMFDM, King Crimson, Melvins, or stick around in Jackson, MS when bands like REM (in a SHOEBOX of a venue), Fugazi, Kyuss, Type O Negative (ha), The Cult, Rush, Prince, and others came through. One of those bands I really loved but they lasted like 6 months--I'll post them over in Music because I think a lot of people here would love Stompbox.

My first concert was Sting, with Squeeze as the opening act.  Solid show.

Hate to one up you,but saw Squeeze at CBGB and hung out with Gilson Lavis,the drummer, after the show,and debated stick twirling.

@Jett129  My dad had a lot of 45’s that I got to dig through and I vividly remember playing “Goovin” (Sueno b side) by the Young Rascals and “Do Wash Diddy Diddy” by Manfred Mann. I loved finding great songs in his old records.

@mclaincausey  1984 as a first concert is kind of incredible. I was 13 when that album came out and had the cassette (and a yellow waterproof Sony Walkman to play it). You got to see some incredible shows as a kid. 

Squeeze “Black Coffee in Bed” has been a favorite song of mine since way back. Can’t imagine getting to see them at CBGB’s.

My first real big concert was seeing the Young Rascals. Seeing Dino Danelli play drums was life changing for me.

@SKT I was like 9. It was COMPLETELY inappropriate :D

I had that same Walkman! I still remember how awkward the damn headphones/earbuds were!

But yes I was lucky. Jackson was kind of a shit town (though I will always cherish having grown up there) but it sits between NOLA and Memphis and Dallas and Birmingham, then Atlanta, so a lot of tours came through, and as mentioned, once I could drive, I would go to shows within a 4-7 hour radius or so. I also really am grateful for having had access to juke joints and the blues as well as other local music of various genres. This documentary largely focuses on (and tried to raise funds to save) a Jackson juke joint, the Subway Lounge. We used to go there late at night for blues and R&B shows long into the night, often after having caught a concert downtown. Malaco Records, a gospel, blues, and R&B label was also based in Jackson, and I was friends with some of those folks, which provided opportunities to catch a lot of good music too.

Damn @Jett129 I don't know why Danelli isn't more of a household name. I would have loved to catch their run at the Capitol Theater a few years ago.

And I don't know who Sting's drummer was when Chris saw him, but I know he was a badass.
Think it, be it.

My first cassette bought at the age of 11. Hip hop went on to change my life in so many ways. Its still the music I buy and listen to everyday. It was the first genuinely new style of music created since R&B. It truly was my punk rock. Then I discovered hardcore punk rock... Thanks to hip hop.



Then the Morgan Khan Street sounds electro albums on cassette. We used to play these while breaking and busking in my hometown Gray's shopping presinct
