So am I a heathen if I like Quiet Riot's version of that song better?  


1973 thread, so how about a hit from '73 performed live in '74?

I'm fond of '73 for another reason:  My car was built in '73 (I'm pretty sure. I'd have to check the VIN again).

Oh dude, I completely forgot about the TV going off at night. Sometimes with static, others would have that logo thing playing with a loud tone to wake you up. Haven't though about that in years.. Man Im old.

Ha ha! Yeah. We had a black and white TV with three stations. You had to get up to change the channel.

Ballroom Blitz...

On a juke box in a bar in Germany, they had this song, but had the band's name as "The Sweat"...

We had a year's worth of giggle-fests with that.

Had to go out in the yard to change channels, yell out the window while one of us moved the antenna and pointed it at the right TV tower. " a little more! little more! Whoa! Too far! Go back a little!

I remember 1973, the year we got Central Air conditioning installed. Just had the whole house attic fan prior to that. In Florida.

In '73 we only had 5 channels, sometimes 6 if the wind turned the antenna a little more south, they went off the air with the Star Spangled Banner.  Channel 2 (PBS) had British comedy on Friday nights and I got my fill of Monty Python, Benny Hill and others from an early age.

They'd play the National Anthem and then have that rainbow bar code looking thing or even just static.  Weird.

Here's 43 minutes of the best thing from 1973

Very nice.  

I see you're one of those showy people.  My car was never in shows, because it was a 20 footer at best.  Looks great in the picture I put up.  Walk closer and you'll notice the hail damage (car was primed when I bought it as someone elses half finished project, didn't discover the small dents until I painted it.), the small rust bubbles over the rear wheel wells, the body panels not quite perfectly aligned.....but it was pretty quick, and loud...what more does a 17 year old need?  

We had a lot of fun together until this happened while I was in college:  (apologies in advance for car whoring in a music thread)




So I spend my Christmas and summer break before senior year yanking everything off like this:



To turn it into this:



New springs, shocks, disc brake upgrade, new suspension bushings all the way around, sandblasted and repainted all the metal.....

And then I graduated, got married, moved, bought a house, etc.....so that's the current status and has been for 4 years....no motor, no other work done.  Someday she'll be on the road again.  I just can't decide if I'm going to swap out the body I recently picked up for $200 since it's nicer, or say fuck it, find a donor 4 door's frame to steal and build twins...one for the drag strip with a retardedly large motor, flat black paint, no back seat and race suspension, and one for daily driving with good road suspension, nice body work, an automatic, maybe even A/C.  Twins are hot.....

Man, what a year!  I got home alive from a year in Vietnam, paid cash for a new Honda 750 and got a hot round-eyed girlfriend that was insatiable.  Good times!!!

As far as the music goes...............there was music?

Class of '73 here, too.

Moved out of the folk's house within days of graduating, bought a 69 chevy van.  Had it painted canary yellow with black trim & put baby moon hubcaps on the wheels.

Needed that to haul the big ass, double bass drum kit I bought the same week (clear plexiglass) and for all the other ass I was (hoping to be) draggin' around as well.  

Wish I still had both.  You young guys...enjoy your youth.  The women don't come around nearly as often as they used to.

Is this thread for people born in 1973, graduating high school in 1973, or who can remember 1973?  ...or just anyone that can find and post things from 1973?

 



Apparently Pringles first came to market in 1973...so there's that.
