Ha, thought you guys might get a kick out of this.  So in 1987 I was a lunkhead midwestern teen, age 17, who really only wanted to play guitar and nothing else.  My guitar heroes then were the typical - Ed Van Halen, Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai, etc.  I had a friend (who is now my brother in law) who was older and had music connections, so I made this "demo" to try to get signed so I too could be a rock god.  

 

My sister has had this tape at her house since that time.  She found it and sent it to me the other day.  I popped it in the cassette recorder this morning and lo and behold the tape is intact.  

 

I give you my demo of 1987 grasp for rock godhead.  Be excellent to each other.

I should probably go back to it!  
 

I don't know - life took some turns and my tastes are always changing.  Back then you'd hear stuff like "Eddie Van Halen sound-a-likes are a dime a dozen in Hollywood" - and they probably were.  I also had dreams of being a studio guitarist, but that whole scene dissipated.  Erm, then I went to college (pfft).

 

Also shizzies - thanks for listening & kind words.

I was 14 and it's annoying that I'm not the oldest one here. My lawn isn't as crowded as it should be.
