1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I can’t remember if it was Twisted Sister’s “Stay Hungry” or Run DMC’s “Raising Hell,” but both were seriously exciting to have on cassette. I remember being both fascinated and a bit freaked out by Dee Snider eating a big nasty piece of meat on the cover. I also remember having the vinyl of MJ’s “Thriller” and how magical the cover art was with the baby tiger and all.
