    I just finished ripping my Tom Petty CD's to MP3 (cleaning the cd shelf), and "Won't back down" is giving me flashbacks of cruising around with my buddies in my '73 Polara at end of high school collegey years.

    In the words of Toby Kieth, Nights I can't remember, friends I'll never forget.

    We had 5 kids stuffed into that car one night, and some punk bet me I couldn't make the tires spin with all that weight in the back. So I cooked em up nice for him at the next light... That was back before I realized chicks aren't really impressed when you choke them with smoke from burning rubber... Then we ditched them and a few weeks later they kicked my friends arse and trashed his van real bad, but otherwise we had some fun those years :rotfl:...
    I found out a couple months ago that this friend that had gotten jumped confessed to a murder he didn't commit in his old hometown (freaky, eh?)...

    I graduated in '89, so my music memories are pretty lame. Sad as it is, I hear some Guns & Roses and have scary visions of me, Milwaukee's Best, ripped jeans with bandana and borderline arrest/death incedents.:blush:

    Yeah, G&R takes me back to high school. We all loved the classic rock. :D

    Linkin Park really reminds me of those times too.:whistle:

    Ozzy Osbourne ~ Mr. Tinkertrain .... reminds me of my wrestling years in school, they used it on my highlight film my freshman year.

    I have found a lot of songs bring back memories of something, someone from your past. I doesn't hurt to remember your past, it's what made you what you are today! :)

    Long Time by Boston...sitting in my car at high school, cutting class and smoking, BS'ing with my friends. :blush:

    Back in Black
    The Wall

    Both remind me of Sony Walkmans in high school. I remember the first walkman I ever saw/listened to when they were very new. My friend had one and he had Pink Floyd and AC/DC...

    Gun's and Roses, Def Leppard remind me of the first summer I spent with my wife (before she was my wife...) Specifially the 5 hour drive to Okanagon lake when we went there.

    "Them Bones" by Alice in Chains - reminds me of booming around the Arizona desert, 20ft off the ground doing 180mph, after midnight, in a 50,000lb helicopter. :cool1: :cool1: We patched a Discman into the intercom that week for in-flight entertainment. Good times... :usaflag: :usaflag: :usaflag:

    "Take it Easy" by The Eagles - driving along I-40 with my wife and our dog, going cross-country from PA to CA. She was singing along in a purposely-horrible voice, trying to get me to eject the tape and let her put something of hers in. Didn't work... :D :D :D

    "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana - hopping in my buddy's Grand Am at lunchtime in high school to run to Mickey D's, and our efforts to sneak back in unnoticed (we weren't supposed to leave the building for lunch). :angry1: :angry1: Oh, and the vodka & OJ breakfasts in the student parking lot... :thinking: :thinking: :yikes: :yikes:

    My first real job was a busboy . I would get off bout 1:30 in the morning, then I had a 20 mile drive home on nice 4 lane hiway. I would load up up my Eagles 8track, bump it up to "Take It To The Limit" and run my 427 Galaxie up to the end of the speedo. Never got caught, I could usually get home in less than 15 minutes, driving through the neiighborhood slowed me down to 35 mph.

    "Knockin' on Heavens door" G'N R version. Armed Forces Radio Network played it about an hour before we kicked off the Kuwait invasion in '91. I was about 3 miles from the boarder at the time.

    Old Van Halen. My buddy and I used to listen to that every morning on the way to high school.

    "Enter Sandman" Japan Late '91 early '92.

    Ahhhhh,memories..

    tRusty must be about the same age as me--We rocked out to the tunes of Boston("Long Time","More Than A Feeling") in my high school days too(they were a local bar band that started in Hyannis MA not too far from me!).

    .I can remember driving my 1963 VW beetle and listening to "Train Kept A Rollin" on Areosmiths "Get Your Wings" 8 track!- Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water","Highway Star",--"Sweet Leaf "and "Paranoid",by Black Sabbath,-and cruising in my brush painted red and white 1963 VW "Bus" listening to "Lucky Man" by Emerson,Lake,And Palmer(our graduation song at school!),and "The Wall",and "Dark Side Of The Moon"album by Pink Floyd,and "Fly Like An Eagle" by the Steve Miller Band,also "Taking It To The Streets" by the Doobie Bros,Creedence Clearwater Revival,Lynyrd Skynerd's "Free Bird",AC/DC's "We've Got Big Balls" broadcast over the PA in my CB in the schools parking lot-

    Now I'm back to country and bluegrass the past 20 years or so--"The Song Remembers When" by Trisha Yearwood speaks volumes on this subject--many songs out when I took my first trip to nashville for "Fan Fair" bring me some bittersweet memories--my best freind I drove there with died a few years later(as did my other best friend I'd known since grade shcool,both had heart problems and died at age 36:frown1: )-

    Every time a song by the artists we met there comes on,its like a flashback--We met Suzy Bogguss and Kathy Mattea,and Holly Dunn several times,and got to know them petty well--each time I hear them I have to stop and take a deep breath..it was hard to go see them in concert after that,but I go to every one in my area--they are very good to their fans,and I owe a lot to them for helping me cope with my friends loss-

    And after what Rhonda Vincent gave me the other night(a CAR!:laugh: )--I cant say anything but good about country and bluegrass artists--I might have been a "Metalhead" back when,but I'm a country and bluegrass fan forever now!--YEEE_HAWWW!!:D :D
