My first concert experience was in Fall 1985. Who did I see? STING! He was still playing smaller venues - this one was at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. I saw more concerts in high school than all the collective years since. Psychadelic Furs, INXS, UB40...Sting show was, by far, my fave.

I listened to a lot of music in high school, all the way from the 6o's to now. Some of them were the Beatles, Billy Joel, Carpenters, The Bangles, Aqua, Def Leopard, Pink Floyd. So you can see I listened to many artists.
