Default Happy 25th Anniversary, New Jersey

Talk about things that make you feel old. Has it really been TWENTY FIVE years? I still remember the day I bought New Jersey. That was one of two records that changed my life.

Still the band's beste album IMO. Great songs, great performances, great production.

I didn't buy New Jersey the day it came out -- I waited two days so that I could buy it and the Anthrax album State of Euphoria with just one trip to the record store. On my way to the checkout counter, I stopped for a quick poke through the bargain bin and found a copy of The Best of Teddy Pendergrass. Twenty-five years later, I can still remember the look that the cashier gave me!

My other favorite New Jersey memory is hearing for the very first time, and having the exact same reaction that Jon did to Tico's "shotgun wedding": "What did he play that for? Oh, NOW I get it!"

Although I liked Bon Jovi back then, I wasn't really a die-hard just yet. Once this album ran its course with single, was when I started turning into a die-hard.

I remember when the Bad Medicine video was released and it was such a big deal in my area. You would think it was the Empire Strikes Back premiering.

Bigger than the biggest artist today. It was crazy!!!

I remember the LYHOM video.
Stunning. I was 13. I wanted to see Jovi live from that point.
I did for my 15th birthday in 1990.

That afternoon, I ran directly to the record store from school. I still remember the first listen as if it was only yesterday. Bigger than life songs just kept on coming, one after another. It was unbelievable.
