I never was a big Judas Priest fan but some friends took me to go see them and I was impressed! They were really good and put on a good show. Enjoy!

I see you have Motley Crue and Loverboy on there. I have seen Loverboy 3 times and Motley Crue once when they opened up for Ozzy Osbourne in the 80's.

I have left the whole concert scene many many years ago until I heard Paul McCartney is coming to town in August. I am a huge Beatles fan. I am getting tickets Monday morning!

I cannot narrow too much, but I can narrow it to a genre: hair metal, although I like eighties music period.

I am more of a late 60s and 70s person, but there was definately some good stuff in the 80s, like:

U2
Whitesnake
Def Leppard
Journey
Ozzy
Loverboy
REO Speedwagon
Triumph

I think some of these started in the 70s, but weren't really known until the 80s. But as far as I am concerned, there is nobody better than Led Zeppelin, obviously a 70s band, but none better.

When I grew up in the 80's I loved stuff like Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club etc, NOW, i'd rather listen to The Clash, Sex Pistols, etc.
