Topic: WHEN DID YOU BECAME A FAN OF A BAND, AND WHICH BAND(S)
One of the first songs I really loved were: THE BEATLES with YESTERDAY, and the ROLLING STONES with RUBY TUESDAY. I started to "sing-a-long" with SAVED BY THE BELL by Robin GIBB, leading me to the BEE GEES.
Later, I heard in school, in 1971, from a classroom mate that he saw a band named deep purple and he became a huge fan. I was "infected" by the Deep Purple bug, and THAT band became my first hero, almost together with CCR and Led Zeppelin.
So my story is, better my big favourites were:
1) DEEP PURPLE
2) LED ZEPPELIN
3) CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL (CCR)
I wanted to have all those albums. My ALL TIME FAVOURITE was CCR. I remember me that they performed in Belgium, in 1972 or 1973, I begged my parents to go, and they answered: YOU CAN GO, BUT YOU HAVE TO BE AT HOME AT 23.00h and IF I was at home later than 23.00h, I couldn't go out to dance for 2 months.
THOSE WERE THE DAYS MY FRIENDS, and so I never saw my NUMBER ONES = CCR.
I did see end 1973 (First year at the university) AND Deep Purple AND Led Zeppelin.
I also became a huge PINK FLOYD fan, but only after their album "Wish you were here."
Other BANDS (a few years before the 3 I mentioned)
- BEE GEES
- ROLLING STONES, but I loved the Beatles more.
WHAT'S YOUR STORY?
- MY GUITAR PLAYS EVERY STYLE = BLUES, ROCK, METAL, so I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO PLAY IT.
