    Ratt. Invasion of your privacy. I'll defend that shit all day.

    I am not a Ratt-lover.

    But your username made me think of my beloved Frampton Comes Alive (still have my original vinyl)!

    And now digging on a lovely acoustic version of Do You Feel, albeit sans Bob.

    At 12 years old I got a gift certificate (actual certificate...on paper) to Tower Records and bought four albums:
    1. Judas Priest-Screaming for Vengance
    2. Pat Benatar-Precious Time
    3. Rush-Moving Pictures
    4. Styx-Paradise Theater

    I got my first single play cd player and bought two cd's out of the chute:
    1. Sinead O'Connor-Lion and the Cobra
    2. Sisters of Mercy-Floodland

    Both were released in 1987 and purchased early during my first year at university.

    You can't make this sh!t up....

    Sure...I am quoting myself...but can you imagine being a rock star and getting asked who were the bands that influenced you in your youth?....you respond with Judas Priest, Pat Benatar, Rush, Styx, Sinead O'Connor and Sisters of Mercy...I am pretty sure that no one has ever provided that as their answer.

    It's so weird I had literally listened to time has come today 5x last week. Heard it on Underfround garage, remembered that Brendan Benson walked on stage to it when I saw him a few years back, then listened to the single and full album versions a handful of times to decide which I liked better. Im usually not much for single edits, but 10 minutes of that one might be too much!!!! It's a solid jam of a tune though!
