Bay City Rollers, Shaun Cassidy, Andy Gibb, England Dan and John Ford Coley (sp???) and the James Montgomery Band, Boston Garden, December '78 (I think). Maybe '77. I was 8 or 9 years old, and went with my sisters, my mom, my friend and her mom. Andy Gibb and Boston Garden, R.I.P.
First punk show: Teminally Ill (members later formed Slapshot) with other local punk bands (I think DYS and Jerry's Kids were on the bill too), January 12, 1984, Eagle's Hall, Malden, Mass. Why do I remember the date and not who was on the bill? Maybe because it was exactly one month before my 15th birthday.
I don't know what was next. . . either Ministry, Siouxsie and the Banshees or the Circle Jerks.
