You just really dated yourself there FMJ ;D, lol it is good stuff, I have a disc of Dreams, it is good music but I have to be in the right mood.
I am ALWAYS in the mood for the theater!
Hows this for dating myself...
I saw the Theater in '91 (i just turned 21) here @ Pieres for their 2nd album (and best IMHO) Images and Words, for $5, my oldest son was 1 y/o....
After listening to my eldest son give my crap for years and years about my groups (Dream Theater, Queensryche, Megadeth etc etc) i took him too the Gigantour in '08 (i believe, mighta been 09) Midway thru the Theater set, i glance over at my boy and his mouth is simply hanging open. He was completely in awe.
Needless to say, i have NEVER heard bad word out of his mouth about my musical tastes ever since....when on road trips to N. MI he even requests i dial up Theater, Queensryche, Anthrax, Megadeth on the MP3 player
I was watching the video and booey walks by and looks over my shoulder and say's "Oh, that's Dream Theater, they're on Guitar Hero."
Yeah, I was jamming some Rush one night and my youngest comes out and says "Thats Rush." I was impressed until i asked "Howd you know that?!?" he says "Oh, its on Guitar hero."
I guess that video game is good for something...at least its introduciing a musically deprived generation to great tuneage!
Heres a couple i shot at the afore mentioned Pieres.
I first saw this group live in 1986 when they opened for Def Lepard. They cleaned the stage up. Even tho Def Lep had an AWSOME light show and put on a pretty dern good performance. Teslas pure, raw energy put Def Lep to shame! I have seen them some 17 times since then. Including once in 1989 at Wendler arena in Saginaw MI. I then hopped in my Cougar and flew down here and took my then girlfriend (now wife) to the memorial coliseum here in the fort the next night.
