and I was in the 4th grade, Miss Plant's class. On Fridays, after lunch, we had music appreciation. Looking back, it was probably just an excuse for a young teacher to play some music she enjoyed. But, it was the first time I heard "American Band" by Grand Funk and The Doobie's "Long Train Running".

Working as a computer operator for a couple of years.

Didn't go to the movies much, not in the budget. (needed money for concerts, tunes, strings, rent & food)

I spent 6 months in a college in PA.

Hitched everywhere, not much in the line of public transportation around there.

When I had access to a car I did pick up hitchers.

1974, huh??? I was 11, hating school, hitting on my babysitters and older sister's friends ( learning how to be a dog ), digging the great '74 rock and roll, and wishing for a better guitar...[thumbup]

I had just bought my first Gibson - a 65 Melody Maker DC.

 

I paid $60 used and the purchase price include a Gibson 64 Explorer GT18 amp (tweed covered). Played and sounded great. I was hooked.

 

I still have it (modded in 77).

My daughter was 4, I was having sex with 3 different women and Jerry Brown was elected Governor. It was a good year.

 

 

My son was 1, I couldn't get laid in a whorehouse with a fist-full of $100 bills, and Jerry Brown was elected Governor. It was a bad year.

Funny thing is that Meg Whitman moved here in '74 because the business climate under Jerry Brown was to her a great place to grow a business. And it seems it was.

I don't believe the bit about not being able to score in a whorehouse with a fist full on money. No body can be that disgusting and repulsive.

Funny, I was 14 in Jacksonville, Arkansas and I got my first guitar, also a Melody Maker, Cherry red. My parents bought it for me though.

HAHAHAHA.... well, maybe I was exaggerating a little....let's just say it wasn't a "banner year" for me! Actually I was in college after getting out of the Army, and I hadn't found out about my wife's boyfriend yet.

were in Boston, second semester of Berklee College of Music.

 

I was 18 and had an off-campus apartment and live-in girlfriend - woo-hoo!

 

Took 5 more years to get my Bachelor of Music, I was a slow learner...
