I was nine years old watching it at a friend's house. Showtime had just came out, cable TV was a new thing, and I remember Tommy, The Kids Are Alright, and Alice Cooper in Concert were in heavy rotation. The irony is that Alice didn't frighten me at all, it just seemed funny.
There's still something not quite right about Tommy (the movie), very dark and misguided. The movie didn't ruin the album for me, they're two separate things. Don't need either of 'em.
