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
My first one was BTO: Four Wheel Drive. Was 1973 or 1974.
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!
"what were your first records?"
My first Vinyls were 45's.
I bought a lot of them.
The first was probably The Rolling Stones - Honkey-Tonk Women
Meet the Beatles, Beatles 65, Waylon Jennings "Only Daddy that will walk the line" John Lee Hooker "T for Thelma", Diana Washington "What a difference a day makes "
These ten were among the first. I can't remember in which order and I'm sure there are some that I have forgotten.
Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced?
Canned Heat - Canned Heat
Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
Frank Zappa - Over-Nite Sensation
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Mardi Gras
Genesis - Foxtrot

Mid-64ish... I think!
Not hipsters...think blue-eyed soul.
My first real date was at a TDN concert!
And then came these:
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! (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!
King Creole - Elvis Presley
Johnny Burnette - Rock 'N' Roll Trio
The Ventures - Walk Don't Run
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.
No static at all...I loved the out guitar solo (Becker?)...tasteful whammy bar use.
Can't remember, but they were wax, not vinyl.
