I turned 18 in 1975. I was a mess. I can hardly remember anything. It's the year I graduated from high school and headed off to college at Mizzou.
Hey, and what's weird is that hair style is coming back. I saw a young anchor on NBC's Nightly News the other night that looked like he might have walked out of my High School year book onto the set at NBC.
That year I saved my money working as a waiter in an Italian restaurant in St. Louis and bought a new stereo system. It was an old component system - Pioneer amp and tuner, with two Advent tower speakers. I remember the Advents putting out some nice sounds.
I loved the Eagles, and "One of these Nights" was one of my favorites. I saw the Eagles in concert twice. Once at the Mississippi River Festival in Illinois and once, I believe, at the Fox in St. Louis. But I could be wrong about that. Of course, disco was just getting hot and KC and the Sunshine Band's "That's the way I like it" may have been one of the first big disco hits. By the time I graduated from college we all hated disco.
You gotta remember that we listened to songs on vinyl discs at home and eight-track tapes and AM mono radios in our cars. I don't believe there were any cassette decks in our cars yet.
