I remember seeing Bon Jovi opening up for Ratt, and they were begging us to call our local radio stations to play them. How about White Snake, Cindarella, Twisted Sister, Great White, Krocus, Billy Squire ect... I'd like to forget the 80's.

So many things happened in the 80s!! I remember what has already been posted by others. I think the greatest thing that happened for me was the births of my daughters and being there for them as they grew!!!

Of course who could forget this:

(You knew I couldn’t resist, huh? LOL!!!)
Polly aka Shunka....the Def Leppard crazy in AZ!!

I remember the 80's well...taking my teen-age daughter and her friends to concerts like REO Speedwagon, Rush, Heart, Van Halen and ZZ Top...listening to Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, and Zepplin...divorcing husband #2...
We get by with a little help from our friends

GB - I know see you in a whole new light....tell me - did you go sockless with your deck shoes too? And shave only every 3 days?

urmaniac....words escape me. But, being a haridresser in the 80's was a blast for me. Remember the "flock of seagulls" look? It's amazing what you can do with a hairdryer and a can of aqua net.

speaking of hair, JDP's bi-level drop-cut: mullet. Gave many of those out. On purpose. (and most of the guys got highlights too)

Shunka - I remember Def Leppard as being one of the best shows I ever saw.

I remember seeing tons of bands on the Hollywood strip, begging us to go to their club shows, since they had to pay for all unpaid seats. I specifically remember having demo tapes from many bands before they got famous. (just was telling that to my teenager this morning, when he asked if I'd heard of Guns N Roses. I told him I'd seen them in clubs and that I had demo tapes....he freaked out that mom may have been cool at one point)

And Sushi, I even wore my denim miniskirt and hot pink pumps to the ZZ top concert, just like every other girl there.

Oh boy...."MA, I need some more quarters!" Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Tempest. How about Hardcastle & McCormick, Night Rider or Wolf? Fraggle Rock, Alf and "Nanu nanu" Mork & Mindy. TRON! Drive-in movie theaters, fat shoe laces, break dancing. "Roxanne, Roxanne...I wanna be yo man."
