    1. Hi Virginia,
      I know it’s hard. I LOVED STYX and saw them in concert. Loved Queen and cried when he died. Love AC/DC — Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest.

  1. My favorite band from the 80’s was Bon Jovi, but I really loved David Lee Roth from Van Halen.

    1. Hi Audrey,
      I love Bon Jovie and Van Halen was one of my favorites. David Lee Roth is so good…except at Christmas music. I bought his Christmas CD and it was so bad. I donated the CD. He can’t sing Christmas carols. My husband laughed. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest.

    1. Hi Bonnie,
      So many good singers/bands. I like all three of those. Tina Turner — what a talent. Queen — so good and so tragic. Madonna — what a wonderful singer and her songs are so good. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest.

    1. Hi Dixie,
      I LOVED Queen. I hope you’ve seen the movie about his life. It was so good and sad. I also listened to his autobiography, which was disturbing, but I did understand him better. Such a great talent. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest.

    1. Hi Wendy,
      I stood in line to get tickets to see them. Remember how you had to go down to a store that was selling the tickets and get in line? They were very good and I really loved seeing them. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest.

    1. Hi Jack,
      Genesis/Phil Collins were great. Yes, they were on fire in the 80’s. It’s really sad that Phil’s health has gone down and he is unable to tour. Thanks for entering and reading my newsletter.

  5. I was in elementary school in the 80s and mostly listened to what my mom listened to, but we went to The Palace(roller skating rink) sometimes weekly and they played mostly Pop and R&B & a little Rock.

    1. Hi Kelly,
      They were a good group. Funny, but I enjoyed them more when the members were on Dancing With the Stars. Thanks for reading my newsletter and entering the contest. Have a great day.
