From the time I was born until I was about 12, I only listened to my parents' music. After that, I started listening to contemporary rock; around 1994 or 95'. I think my parents stopped listening to new artists around 1979. They played stuff by Steve Winwood, Steely Dan, Paul Simon, Phil Collins. I think Tom Petty was the "newest" artist my parents actively listened to. Pretty main stream groups. I recently got into Big Star and Alex Chilton and it's now leading me to groups like the Replacements, The Posies, The Cult ... all the pre-grunge rock groups of the 80's. I know I must of heard a few of these groups on the radio, I just had no idea who they were. I didn't have an older sibling to turn me on to this music, so I missed out I was wondering if anyone else out there has blind spots like that; stuff that you would have loved in your youth but for some reason or another, it just got past you?
