    Mine was kings of the wild frontier by Adam and the ants. Marco Pirroni was my first guitar hero and lead me on to listen to people like Ian Dury, magazine, siouxsie and the banshees and the smiths.

    My first album I chose and bought with my hard saved pocket money was 'Trocadero' by Showaddywaddy. I played it to death, then an outbreak of punk swept the UK, for which there was no vaccine. It infected this precocious squit quite badly.

    boomtown rats - the fine art of surfacing in 1980, for my 11th birthday. i've had about 6 or 7 copies of that album in various formats over the years. they were also the first band i ever saw live, in 1981 at leixlip castle.

    Indeed :rolleyes:

    It was when I was about 12. It's the first (and probably only) instance I can remember when I totally lost it, defied my parents and refused to back down.

    First album I got from my aunt-Double Live Gonzo by Ted Nugent. Groundbreaking for this kid who grew up listening to my parents country music. Ted was my first guitar hero. Still love that album, have bought it in several formats over the years.
    First purchased album-Quiet Riot Metal Health. I wore it out. But it didn’t age well for me-I cant change channel fast enough when I hear them.

    For me it was the Doobie Brothers' Toulouse Street. My brother bought me two before that: The James Gang Rides Again and Creedence Clearwater Revival's Cosmo's Factory. He started buying me albums when I started playing in 1970. It was a great start.

    Santana Abraxis on 8 trk from TG&Y in Thibodaux, LA. It was really a big deal for me. Got my Panasonic stereo for Christmas, but nothing to play on it. Still have the unit growing older by the day in my attic. Went the next day to spend my allowance money. Before that I had to listen to what my three older sisters bought on 45 on the family console. Can’t remeber my first vinyl record.

    Big Beatles fan. Asked my Mom for a Beatles album for my birthday. Mom got me "Beatles VI". Great album - still have the original album, a second LP, and the CD.

    First album I ever got: Sgt Peppers, but that was a gift. The first record I ever bought on my own? KISS, Rock and Roll Over, which is why I am a guitar player today. Thanks Ace!
