25 years since the greatest music festivals of the 80s!

I was a sophmore in high school and my brother took me to my very first concert. The 1982 US Festival was put on by Steve Wozniak of Apple Computers. I attended on Saturday and was fortunate to see Dave Edmunds, Eddie Money, Santana, The Cars, The Kinks, Pat Benatar, & Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. It was really hot out, but I got to see some really classic rock. The next year we attended again and were there for the now famous “Heavy Metal Day” and saw a great line-up of metal bands : Quiet Riot, Motely Crue, Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Trimph, Scorpions, and Van Halen. I checked out and headed to the car for Van Halen and listened from there as David Lee Roth was so drunk he forgot the words to songs.

  1. So I wonder if you get involuntary shudders thinking about eating a cold uncooked hot dog? That gacked me out when you guys got back and recounted that bit of info!
