Are You A Loyal Fan Of Any Bands?
I saw the B-52s in concert last night and it was an energetic crowd-pleasing show, as always. I speak from experience because this was probably the 8th time I've seen them perform live, in person. I've even travelled to other states to see them, a sure sign that I'm a loyal fan.
I was reminiscing a bit yesterday; thinking of the first time I had ever seen or heard these artists. It was 1980 and I was babysitting. The child was asleep, the parents were not home, and I had "Saturday Night Live" on television. The B-52s took to the stage singing "Rock Lobster" and "Dance This Mess Around" and I was mesmerized. They looked and sounded different from any other group I had ever seen. Their music had an infectious dance groove and was fun! I became a fan that night, and got their album soon after.
Do you remember the first time you "got hooked" on a musician or band? Are there any performers you've seen multiple times? Which groups do you like to see every time they come around?
