Sabrina: I would say the best thing for me is the big drum sound. That really gets me. You listen to Def Leppard or somebody like that. I would rather listen to any of that than other stuff with mellow drums. I don't know. It just gets you more into the beat and gets you more into it. Especially if there's a big groove in the song. It's so fun to listen to. And you look at the videos they made. They're freaking FUN videos. And it feels like you're there. And the lead singers were all great performers as well as great singers. I like that freedom to move around the way they have. I mean I can play guitar to all my songs. But it would be so boring when I can just play for a couple of songs and then spend the rest of the time interacting with the crowd. Just dancing and moving around….it's a great workout too (laughs). But yeah you watch KISS, and Poison and Aerosmith, and Guns 'N Roses and it's just so different than seeing a band play today. And not to put down current bands. There's a lot of great bands out there today. I just love the bigness of the '80s. The performances and everything. They were moving all over the place. I don't know if the drugs and alcohol had anything to do with it. And the show…even the lighting guys. They were just great. I mean, watch a Bon Jovi tour from '86. I wish I could have been my age now, in '86. A lot of people look at me funny over that stuff but it's alright. I don't mind it. And you ask anybody who was going to shows at that time. They all say they loved it. They were fun times…. [see full story for more]- Click here for the Full Story
