First album was Van Hallen on vinyl

It's good to know that everyone I idolize at one time or another in their career was where I am right now.

First Album:  Kiss - Double Platinum (I was like 7 I think - but even then, was into Gene Simmons and the bass)

First Concert:  Not including the various local "can't remember" bands, the first big stadium one was Jethro Tull on Halloween night, but more importantly, the second one was Megadeth, of course!

The first gig I ever attended was Robbie Williams with my dad and stepmum who were big fans :P

 

The first gig I went to on my own, well, with friends, was All American Rejects back when I was about 13/14. 

 

The first record I bought was apparently the first album by The Prodigy when I was 7 on casette tape. (My mum was a big fan) I'm not really sure what the first record that I consciously went out and bought was, given the age I was when I really started to get into music, it'd probably be something like Hybrid Theory by Linkin Park or Chocolate Starfish by Limp Bizkit

First record.... uhh..... Hybrid Theory from Linkin Park? Or Anthology from Alien Ant Farm? Not too sure, but probably either of those. First concert was Seether. Kinda meh experience, even though they are a decvent band. This year I went to see Soilwork with a couple of friends and that was a BLAST compared to Seether's.

I'm pretty sure the first album I ever bought was Aerosmith Live Bootleg.  Or that may be the first hard rock album I bought.  If so, I probably bought a Beatles album before that (though i can't remember which was first).

 

First concert was called Rockfest at Arlington Park Racetrack in Arlington Heights, IL (suburb of Chicago) in 1982.  It had lots of music vendors there (instrument companies, etc.) and the bands included Eddie Money, The Knack, and Girlschool.  I was there to see Judas Priest though, on the Screaming for Vengeance tour.  I got a killer jersey too.  Since it was on Halloween, on the front, the Hellion is carrying a pumpkin and it says, "Trick or Treat Vengeance".  On the back, the Hellion is wearing a witches hat and riding a broom and it says, "Screaming for Halloween".  (though I may have them reversed)  I still have it, but now my wife wears it, and it's almost see-through.  :o

Rush 2112 when I was 11 or 12, my friend had introduced me to Rush Roll the Bones when that was released and I had to find more :) First gig was this  :) 1984, New Brighton Rock where a plethora of bands performed, I was 7 and this opened an addiction to concerts :)

First record I bought was Michael Jackson's Off The Wall. A bit frightening and sad when you look at that LP cover and compare how he looked then to how he looked during the later periods of his life. That was one messed up but talented bloke.  :eek: :sad:

I guess a single counts. The first record I bought was a 45 of Eagles, I know one of the songs was Johnny Come Lately and I think the other was Life In The Fast Lane. I was,, 10 maybe ? The first concert I went to was with my older sister, Def Leppard with Europe opening.

First album was Kiss Creatures of the Night, though Im not really much of a Kiss fan now. First concert was Guns n Roses opening for Iron Maiden back in 1987 I believe it was.

Well, hard to rember first album I bought, remeber buying duran duran, whe I was like in grade for to impress a girl. LOL as a kid dancing to The Reflex. BUt mostly we listened to Judas priest AC/DC and Iron Maiden back in the day, Plus I was really into Alice Cooper, though not many of my friends were.

 

I remember my dad taking me to some outdoor folky kinda concerts when I was a kid, I'd have to ask, but pretty sure I saw Neil Young at one of them.

 

I have personally seen Dio (outdoors), Alice cooper a number of times. Iron Madien like 4 times, Queensyrche as they opened for Metallica. Guns and Roses back in the day when they were opening act they opened for maiden on powerslave tour I think. Could of been somewhere in time tour though. Pink Floyd they were whole like 3 hour show. Oh yeah Motorhead they opened for a band I saw to. but I did not see all of there show was late  not really a fan of them. In fact only song I know by them is ace of spades.

 

 

Alice puts on a great show, still does but hes a lot older, and crowds are smaller. Maiden of course still puts on a good show, but a lot of the same stuff, Flag during the trooper, etc etc. Metallica was freaking awesome, it was the  And Justice for all tour and I had second row floor seats. Was pushed up right against the fence, end of show shook hands with James and Kurt. For  teenage kid at the time, I felt like king of the world.

 

They have a music festival in London every summer and its had some big bands.They have like a different stlye of music every night for like 4 days. Always a few bands I would like to see, but work seemed to get in the way, and as I get older man I hate crowds anymore.
