The best thing about '91 was that not only was punk exploding into the mainstream, but underground music was still great too...

The best was getting the cassette so you could rock the album in your car.
And to make you children a little more jealous: I saw RHCP on their BSSM tour - flaming hats and all.. Better yet (for me) was that Smashing Pumpkins opened for them supporting their Gish album. Part of the tour included Nirvana as the 1st opener. By the time the tour got to me, however, Nirvana had dropped off and were replaced by a band I had never heard of called Pearl Jam. They were a real crowd pleaser - I'm sure they've got a bright future.

I finished HS 16 years after you. 2008. When I'm 34 I'll be one of them people who feels very old and wishes I was still in my youth, I just know it. Unfortunately.

All that excitement and great bands, I even wish it was half as good these days. I'm going to buy an album that's out on Monday for the first time in a while, very excited for it. But I just know listening to it in the car on the way home will most probably be a big disappointment.

When I was 17, I would have been deathly envious of you.

The Flaming Lips in 1993...I would have killed to see them in their formative days (well...not so formative since they started in 1983 but they changed a lot). That was right when Transmissions from the Satellite Heart was coming out. I would just love to be able to compare shows from then and now after they have done things like Yoshimi.

That doesn't compare to some of the line-ups going on these days. Did you see (I think it was) funfunfun fest's line up last year?

It was amazing! I really miss those days. I've got plenty of record stores around me now, but it's just not the same with the internet making things easier (even if I'm still buying CDs), and just the fact that when you got to a record store and can't find what you want, you know it would have been easier sitting on your ass at home ordering it online. It sucks.

Due to the generational gap, I'm sure the average high school kid now feel the same way about the current music scene (whatever style they like) as we did back then.
