If this thread was already done OOPS.


Just for fun, I am curious to Know what was the first record (cd, mp3) you bought. As well, what was the first concert you went to?


The first record I bought was Adam and the Ants: Kings of the wild frontier.  


The first concert I went to was.. The English Beat. Bow Wow Wow opened for them.

First album I do believe was Toxicity by System Of A Down, and my first show was Three Days Grace... I know, I know, but I met Unleashed there. So there's that :)

First album bought. I think it was an early Beatles knock-off band in the mid 60's.

First concert attended. (08/24/1972)  Ramatam & ZZ Top opened for Humble Pie.

First record would have been some cheesy pop song, maybe Lolly - Girls Just Wanna Fun. Or could have been Babylon Zoo - Spaceman actually now I think about it.


First gig was Busted, just over 10 years ago now.

I left it quite late to buy a first album, mainly because I just 'borrowed' them from my brother.

So when I did buy, it was kind of filling in a gap in his collection, so the first one I bought was Ride The Lightning.


First gig - White Zombie at the Barrowlands in Glasgow.

First concert was Ozzy Ozbourne Diary of a Madman tour. Right before Randy Rhoads died actually. My first album ever bought was with lawn mowing money and it had to be Kiss Destroyer.

I bought two albums at the same time. Warrant Cherry Pie and Skid Row (Self titled) .. That was a long time ago when I had to choose between tape or CD. Yes, I bought the CD's. 


First show, I saw Korn open for 311 in '94

'99 Fender Stratocaster / '12 Gibson SG (Nothing special but they are mine)

Shout At the Devil---Motley Crue was the first cassette tape I ever bought.


First concert was them opening up for Kiss if I remember right.  I cold be wrong on that though because most of the early 80's are a blur for reasons I probably shouldn't discuss in case my kids read this someday.
