    Unhappy Man Do I Feel Old after Seeing this

    Check out Peter Frampton in this GEICO commericial. He was my hair god in the 70's.

    I don't want to hear any of you young ones ask "Who is Frampton?" either.

    Rick, I feel your pain. I saw Peter Frampton last year (bald) on some show. It seems like yesterday I was listening to "Frampton Comes Alive" and Elton's "Yellow Brick Road" both of which still top my list of favorite albums, yes albums, owned.

    I'm not as old as some of you gents but I can say that the first concert I ever went to was Peter Frampton in Lubbock TX in the 1970's - I was still a kid ( I think I was 11 years old). I wore out one copy of Frampton Comes Alive altogether and bought another one which I still have (Vinyl L.P.)

    Jerry, no.

    I had a 78 setting on my turntable as a kid, only used it for Chipmunk effects and to wing my matchbox cars off of at high speed. I remember my Grandmother having 78 records, big band stuff, etc.

    Lets not forget about those infamous 8-tracks either.

    One of my best Christmas memories was receiving a 8-track player made by Craig for my 69 Chevelle I had back then.

    Spent all day hooking it up. Had to have it exactly centerlined under the dash and all the wiring hid really well.

    I think my first tape put in was Led Zeppelin.

    Those were the days.

    I just thought of a funny time once when I had stayed out a bit too late one night. After sleeping in on that Saturday morning then till about noon I jumped up and was ready to hit the streets again for the day.

    Went outside to wash and clean up my car only to find my mother had it blocked into the driveway with a large dumptruck load of sandy loam for the yard.

    I had to work all day shoveling and wheelbarreling that dirt all over the place and leveling it out.

    By 6pm. I was wore out and decided just to hang around the house that night. By 8pm. I was out asleep for the rest of the evening.

    No tunes that night on the 8-track player.

    argggg...

    dumb old fumble fingers here

    I meant 78.

    How about the 16 2/3 though?

    "Hi-Fi" was short for "High Fidelity" - yeah, I remember those.

    My best friend is dating a girl that is too young to remember Kurt Cobain being alive. Now is when the older guys here ask who Kurt Cobain is.

    Kurt Cobain ... Courtney Love

    So I guess I'm not THAT old?

    But , I did meet (using that term loosely ) Elvis Presley ... live ... he was in his mid 20's (I was younger than that) ... when the train he was traveling to Miami on stopped at Fort Pierce, he stepped out and greeted everyone who was waiting there for him, I think it was 1960 or 61. As I recall, he shook hands with many of those standing there, my older brother being one of them. I was just out of reach for that.

    Here's a video that will make some, like me, feel old, seeing as we were here for everything Joel sings about, from Truman on.

    Rick--You had a hair god?

    Is it safe, then, to assume that you also had deities for other teenage essentials such as clothing, shoes, movie tickets....

    Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell were my hair gods. I had "brillo" type hair when it was long. Sorry, no photo of me. I saw The Experience in Framingham, Massachusetts in about 1968 or so. Far out man.

    I hate the music my kids listen to...

    Just made the biggest mistake.... bought my 14 year old an electric guitar and amp for Christmas.....
    She just made All County with her cello... figured to give her other options.....

    Merry Christmas Everyone......

    OK...I'll confess: I don't feel old even though I'll be 48 next month. I've heard of Guy Lombardo, (of course) but what is the Gold Cup?

    Wade, you and Rick ARE old, I have heard of most of that, but I was still in grade school back then. About the only time I got out at night was to go with my older sister to make sure she did not get lost. She never could and still can't navigate around Dallas or (anywhere else). We lived near Lakewood and she worked at one of the theaters down town (Majestic?)
