Re: 80's music

^^For the kids out there who haven't heard the story, "Video Killed the Radio Star" is the very first video that MTV played when they went on the air (not that I had the channel at that point).

(And yes, MTV used to play music videos.)

I love the Stray Cats. The 80's were also big for Windham Hill and New Age artists. Liz Story was a favorite pianist from that crowd.

I recall seeing acts like Michael Hedges and Tuck and Patti at the Varsity Theater in Palo Alto, Ca.

'In the Dark' is a favorite, one of the few things my mom and I ever agreed on, The Dead.

Cool. Near my school there was a small bar in Northampton alled 'The Iron Horse' (which has since become something else that cranky coots might bemoan) which in the day was small, crowded and delightfully intimate for solo artists to play. I saw Liz Story there an arm's reach away. She was funny and very entertaining.

Beastie Boys during the 80's was cool...but got better during the 90's. Sigh.

"Ripped"? Were influenced by, perhaps...just as the Beatles were influenced by the early rock 'n' roll of the 50s. But both bands were paradigm-changers in their respective eras.

Ripped is too harsh. Inspired? Nothing wrong with it.
