not bad - my friends Eric and Frank wouldn't be able to fit their lists on their gravestones.

Between the ages 10-14 I saw a lot of those same bands. One that really stood out were Triumph. A Canadian band who were somewhat similar to Rush, but they had a really good guitarist. Their laser light show was absolutely incredible!

redcloud, I faintly recall Triumph.. I've just looked them up and found this on their Wikipedia page:
On July 14, 2011 Triumph Lane, in Mississauga ON, was officially dedicated in honour of the band
which I think is funny and great.


I love that Toto made it on to Harv's stone.

I still have 3-4 of their albums from my youth. Probably best remembered for "Lay it on the Line" and "Fight The Good Fight". Watching their vids now on youtube and it's kinda cheesy - a lot of rock star posing and typical late 70's/early 80's power rock riffs but as a young kid seeing them live blew me away. I can still remember it 30+ years later. I also bought one of those baseball jersey shirts with graphics on front and back at the show (white with black sleeves to the elbows). Every once in a while I pull out their albums and return to those years. :D

Here ya go (I think I saw them around '81/82. I'm pretty sure I still have my ticket stub.):

What? You didn't go for the Red Chestless Jumpsuit (as sported by Triumph Frontman) ?!

but seriously, thanks for that.
I must say that was one of the most enjoyable videos I've seen in a while!

:D

Yep. It's pretty funny what bands wore back then. My 13 year old son takes great amusement in watching cheesy metal videos from MTV's heyday. I think LA glamsters, Ratt, might top his list of "what the fuck were people thinking?!".
