  4. Music got very far away from the guitar bands of the 70’s that I was trying to emulate after 1982. It had something to do with MTV. A lot of that stuff, I can play on the guitar. Although Handel, Bach and Bohemian Rhapsody aren’t things that I play…:-)

    I also graduated from high school then. I have a premise that everyone locks into a particular age and stays that way until they have some life threatening event. So I’m pretty much stuck in at 17 or so mentally and even with my receding hairline, that’s how i view myself.

    The main difference between then and now for me is recovery time…I’m probably in better shape now than then, but if I over-exert now it takes me longer to recover…on the order of days…that’s when I get an inkling that I ain’t 17.5 anymore. 🙂

    One song that strangely didn’t make it to the top 25 that I know I play a lot is Synchronicity II by The Police. I love how the lyrics switch from Scottish Lake to Scottish Loch to Scottish Lake again. That’s poetry.

    And you’ll notice there ain’t no Led Zeppelin there. Strange, but until last year, you couldn’t get that on iTunes. “There’s a lady who’s sure…”
