Thanx for the French lesson, sweetie, I'll have to remember that one. As far as my love for the 80's is concerned - I'd say about half my record collection consists of 80's stuff, mostly heavy metal, NWOBHM, and hard rock/AOR. I think a lot of great music came out of the 80's as well as a lot of rubbish, and a lot of bands looked plain ridiculous. Winger, for example, were/are great musicians, but how can you take seriously? Not even Rod, Kip, Reb, and Paul are, looking back now... However, we all grow as human beings - hopefully - and my tastes started to broaden more and more as I got older and still do. There's stuff coming out now that sounds like it's from the 80's, some of which I can dig, most of which I don't care for - because it's been done and been done better by the originators. I wasn't listening to 60's rock in 1985, so why would I not listen to new, different music now when the 80's are a dozen years behind us? My definition of 'melodic rock' is obviously different from yours. Mine can be anything from Journey to Kula Shaker, Def Leppard to Pearl Jam, and will continue to evolve and change. If yours starts January 1, 1980 and ends December 31, 1989 - that's not my problem.

As far as my exchanges with Chris and Ferrari go - sorry, but I wasn't raised to laugh at/use the word 'n@*#er', and I've never seen a reason to degrade and make fun of people because they decide to dress/act different from me. I'm trying to live by 'treat people how you want to be treated' and be part of the solution and not the problem.
