Last night, on the way home from work, my old school Motley Crue SHOUT AT THE DEVIL cassette was eaten alive. Yes, one of our vehicles still has a tape deck (don't be jealous). Usually I listen to radio or my iPod via cassette-adaptor... but the adaptor died 4-months ago, and my iPod died 2-months ago. It's been a tough year for me and music. Anyway, my Shout At The Devil tape, which I've had since 1986, is no more.
* For those young readers, cassette tapes were what we listened to after Vinyl Records but before CDs (pre-mp3 and iTunes). I give this disclaimer because I overheard a college girl the other day say she had never even heard of a cassette tape, vinyl record or laser disc. It was a conversation sparked by her young teen brother who didn't know what a cd was. Amazing. I mean, I knew what phonographs, 45s and 8-tracks were, even though they were before my time. Know your history, people.
