Thinking back to my high school years 85-88 there were a few students that I knew little about personally however I associated that person with a particular band becuase they were completely obsessed by it. Obssesed in the way that their wardrobe consisted of mainly concert T’s of the band, their lockers had band posters in them, they dressed like them, they scribed the bands name on their books and notebooks, etc. And not just in a yearly fad way but were die-hards throughout high school.
I distinctly remember:
Scott- The U2 fan. Anything and everything U2 for him. Bootleg tapes galore.
Dale- The Rush fan. From seventh grade through high school graduation. Rush T’s, Rush jacket, on and on.
Jenny- The Cure fan. She was as goth as goth could be in the mid 80s. Loooooved the Cure. That’s all I knew about her and I didn’t even know her.
The INXS guy. I don’t even know his name. All I know is he was INXS 24/7. Even did his hair and clothes to look like the lead singer.
