I was in my 20s, also, during the 80s. I was living in Houston for most of it and made my living as a diesel mechanic. I worked on heavy construction equipment... bulldozers, front end loaders, backhoes... I did a little roofing work too for a while, but that was kind of miserable out in the hot sun. I have to admit, I drank way too much back then (among other things). I had a few “Fear and Loathing” road trips with my buddies and I'm probably lucky to be alive considering some of the things we did. :wah:

I never got into 80s music very much except for Stevie Ray Vaughn. We lost some great musicians in the 80s -- Mike Bloomfield, Paul Butterfield, John Lennon, and Stevie Ray Vaughn to name a few.

Check out the guy on his arse. That was Colin Gibson in the season that we (Aston Villa) were European Champions. A good start to the 80's but we haven't had much to shout about since

I loved Garbage pale kids, I was a very avid collector. They were truly hilarious at the time. I wonder if they'd be so funny if I saw them now...Probably.

OK heres one you forgot too mention,Parachute pants.I had three pair.I was always the youngest kid in the neighborhood so I had alot of older Friends.And they turned me onto music that led too me picking up the drums in Jr. high.So by the time I got out of high school in 82 I was a full fledged rock and roll drummer.And with the explosion of heavy metal/hair bands I was on my way to stardom.Played with a few good bands and sat in with many more.Sex,drugs and OMG.I have pics of myself back then with long hair and parachute or spandex pants and sticks a fly'in.but it came too a end,we all went from cocaine too rogaine in one swoop and it was over.I always was in good shape and now I put that passion into my family and working out.If I could change one thing about back then..........................I would have partied twice as hard and went too L.A..
