except for the Pink Floyd, I have owned every album listed in the first two posts. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png


Born 1966. Spent the 70's growing up on Country, Top 40, and radio rock (ELO, Journey, 38 Special).
8th grade year I met a tenth-grader who turned me on to everything from Ted Nugent to Led Zeppelin to Pick Floyd.

AC/DC - For Those About to Rock
AC/DC - Highway to Hell
Ozzy - Blizzard of Oz & Diary of a Madman

Motley Crue - Shout at the Devil
KISS - Lick It Up
ACCEPT - Balls to the Wall
DIO - The Last in Line (then backtracked and got Holy Diver)
Dokken - Tooth & Nail
Iron Maiden - Piece of Mind
Twisted Sister - Stay Hungry
KISS - Animalize
ACCEPT - Restless & Wild
Iron Maiden - Powerslave
ACCEPT - Metal Heart
Judas Priest - Turbo

Metal Church - The Dark (then backtracked and got the debut)
RAVEN - All For One
Mercyful Fate - Melissa
Metallica - Ride the Lightning
SLAYER - Hell Awaits

...and the rest is history.

B. 1974

I grew up with my dad listening to what is now called a "classic rock" station, so I was hearing the good stuff at an early age. 
Somewhere between the ages of 10-12 and dad came home from a garage sale with a case of cassettes, all but one were garbage. The one that I kept, ie my first cassette that I owned:

I heard the opening riff of Whole Lotta Love and I was hooked.

Born 1955.

My very first album was Led Zeppelin's first.  I don't remember for sure after that.  May have been The Beatles' white album.  Led Zeppelin II.  Grand Funk Live.  Sergant Pepper's.  Tommy. 

All vinyl.

Re: First few albums/cassettes you owned?

My very first cassette was Fair Warning, by Van Halen. My first vinyl was Number of the Beast, by Iron Maiden. It's a blur after that. The thing was, my old brother had a dual-cassette boom box, so he used to buy stuff and I used to buy blank tapes and record his stuff. I remember he had the Queensryche EP before anyone had heard of them, so I followed up by purchasing The Warning on vinyl when it came out. The tables turned once I got my paper route, because my obsession with music was much greater than his, so soon he was taping my stuff as I introduced him to Metallica, Mercyful Fate, and many others. I was buying Metal Edge magazine and learning about all the cool stuff.

First cassette albums (I didn't own much music in any media until I went away to college [PP&M's Puff the Magic Dragon excepted, I think], and I copied these 2 tapes from my younger brother before leaving for Penn State, which opened up my musical vistas exponentially)
- Genesis/Genesis backed with The Police/Synchronicity

Re: First few albums/cassettes you owned?

Born 1974.

It started with vinyls of Micheal Jackson's Thriller and Weird Al Yankovic's In 3-D.

Then cassettes of the B-52's Mesopotamia and Weird Al Yankovic's Polka Party.

After a while a friend told me I needed to check out Metallica, so I wound up with Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All.  Somewhere along the way I got a bootleg of Anthrax's I'm the Man single and discovered King Diamond's Them and Conspiracy.  Yeah, it went something like that, I think.

Born 1968

First album (vinyl) I bought with my own money ... KiSS - Double Platinum (1978) ... somehow from there, my next album purchase didn't occur until 1980 with Loverboy's debut album ... we didn't have a lot of money when I was a kid, so I listened to a lot of radio at the time.

Yep, same here! We'd get packs of 120 minute blank cassettes and record the local rock radio stations. I was such a pirate back then...

When I was in my 20s money pretty much stopped.  A friend and I got around it by starting a punk rock 'zine and got indie labels to send us free music in exchange for reviews.  Some of it was even good!

Nice! Any 7 Seconds? They were just starting to become popular back then. Caught a couple of their shows in my youth - pretty darn good from what I remember.

Re: First few albums/cassettes you owned?

I think the most famous band we got samples for was Rich Kids on LSD.  I was surprised that Epitaph even read our letter, much less actually send anything.

Loves me some 7 Seconds though.  They hold up well, IMO.  Still making music too, if I remember right.
