It wasn't an album for me.
It was Michael J Fox miming Johnny B. Goode in Back to the Future that made me want to play.
Sorry it was a path. In something of an order from interest to outright desire.
Louie Louie - My friend had a Fender and a Kustom Amp - we both tried to learn it. He sold it and got a Trumpet.
Meet The Beatles - I wanted a Silvertone and long hair
Lots of Hillbilly music that my A/C commander played in the USAF
Jesus was a Capricorn - songbook
Eagles Greatest Hits
ABB - Jessica
Here's the song
Scarecrow, John Mellencamp. I had just bought my first cheap acoustic guitar when this album came out. Lots of great Telecaster work on that fantastic album. I went out and got the tabs for all of his albums, and started down the road to my happy obcessiob.
Mayall's "Beano" album with Clapton really did it...
Quicksilver for inspiration, but it was the first Paul Butterfield album in particular "Born in Chicago" that started me on the quest.
Best of Both Worlds on Van Halen's 5150.
Soooo many influences in my younger days. Our house was full of records, from old Country to the Beatles, Neil Diamond etc. I remember listening to old “Solid Gold Hits” records, and skipping all the non guitar songs. Used to mime to the rock numbers with a tennis racket.
I remember seeing the Beatles HDN and Help movies, and thinking “I’d like to do that!” So that’s probably the main drive behind me wanting to play guitar. I took lessons for a little while, but couldn’t get my head around the folk type stuff we were being taught, so drifted off learning for awhile. But introduction to things like Kiss Alive and Frampton Cones Alive reignited the flame, so I tried to knuckle down to it. I struggled along through different phases - guitar did not come naturally to me - then I heard Ironmaidens first album, and that was it! I became a bass player and was on my way!
This and the follow up were the first (at the time) new rock band albums I bought in a long time and I'm pretty sure they were the last so 14 years ago. I thought they were great, were playing music I'd been missing and I was hoping they were going to lead the return of straight up rock.... didn't really materialize unfortunately but Permission To Land truly should be a classic and it is in my book.
Iggy and the Stooges...Raw Power.
Anything by The Clash.
Whatever was being played in my Mom & Dad's car between 1983- 1994.
When I was 7 or 8, I told my Dad I wanted to play guitar in the Beach Boys when I grow up
im a metal head too, but im in a red dirt band now....and I love it.
Thin Lizzy's live and dangerous. It is the sound of summer time and all the freedoms that it invokes when you were a teenager. It goes on the car stereo for the annual event known to males everywhere as 'tit Monday': the first nice, warm day when the girls shed the heavy coats and let it all out. It won't be long now..
Led Zeppelin houses of the holy
Sitting in my brother’s Nissan Hardbody truck on Labor Day weekend 1990. He pops in a tape and I’m schnitzel a brick! I’m like who is this. He says, This guy just died on your bday.” My bday is Aug.27. He hands me the tape case with a painting of a dude in a big black flat-brimmed hat with a huge feather and a concho ring: he’s holding a guitar and looked cool as he!!. My jaw hits the floor and I know right then, right there that I’m gonna get a Fender Strat and learn every song on Texas Flood. I was 20.
