1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The first album I bought was Ride the Lightning by Metallica. I bought it on cassette at the shopping mall when I was 12 years old or so.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … I saw Metallica play on the “Black” album tour. I was 14 years old. I was living overseas in Indonesia at the time (my parent’s were international school teachers). Metallica played in the soccer stadium, but many of young Indonesian fans couldn’t afford tickets. There were hundreds of kids loitering outside the gates, and the cops got really violent. A riot started, and eventually the gates were destroyed, cop cars flipped over, shopping mall burned to the ground (same shopping mall I bought the Metallica tape from). It was totally insane! Metallica played while all this was going on. I remember being freaked out and excited at the same time. At the end of the concert my Dad told me I would never see a better show than that. He was right.
