being at the ripe age to gain "legal" driving license I remember the .35 cents per gallon gas. Instead of calling my friends on a cell phone I'd stop at phone booths. That was a good year for music. 8 tracks might have been 44.00 but may as well been 1000.00 since minimum wage was 1.60. That summer I worked double shifts at the truck stop to save up to buy a 56 Chebbie!!!! My first concert was Alice Cooper "Billion Dollar Babies" which I meant to list above. Ha... my hair was so long nearly half way down my back.

And to top it all Allman Brothers concert I didnt know what I was passing up when my friends tried to get me to take off from work for a road trip
