    LOL!!! I'm not sure that's completely accurate, but pretty damn close.

    Rolling Stones + mountains of cocaine = Toys in the Attic?

    ;)

    I know, it wasn't limited to coke. And a lot of it is Tyler's natural manic state.

    LP... Steve Miller Band - Book of Dreams

    Before that I always bought 45's with my allowance. Now I'm back to buying iTunes singles with the allowance my wife gives me ;)

    The first 45 I bought was "She's Not There", by the Zombies. The first album was "Rubber Soul", Beatles. I was 13, 14 or so - the British Invasion was on!

    My first Vinyls were 45's.
    I bought a lot of them.
    The first was probably The Rolling Stones - Honkey-Tonk Women

    I was almost exclusively a Stones and Beatles fan until I became a teenager, where I discovered Aerosmith, Zeppelin, Floyd, Queen, and Rush...

    Didn't warm up to country music until I was in my early 20's... Which is now 30 years ago! :eek: ;) (better late than never!)

    My 1st LP was the FM soundtrack. Loved the Steely Dan title cut and it also had songs by Boston, Queen, Tom Petty. Bob Seger and Steve Miller. Great introduction to Classic Rock!

    through highschool a few friends and I used to scour the second hand record store in the city on Saturday mornings.

    We were looking for current UK LP's by younger guys.... nothing mainstream... sorta like going through an art gallery looking for an album cover you liked from the scant details/pics on the sleeves...

    I found Clear Blue Sky, Van Der Graff Generator, Gravytrain, T2 and a double LP The Vertigo Trip, a compilation of Vertigo label bands at the time, one of which was Black Sabbath.... unheard and unheard of.... turned out great LP's that got thrashed at our parties and were well liked by our crew of friends....

    some of the covers... most of these I still have.

    Can't remember, but they were wax, not vinyl.
