    Hey, everybody, check this out, if just for the picture itself. I guess I've never seen this one:

    Talk about how the times, they have changed. Damn, they've done changed many times thereafter and over again. Look at the strange list of bands that played the rock festival in 1983:

    US FESTIVAL PERFORMANCES
    Memorial Day Weekend 1983
    Quiet Riot
    Divinyls
    Quarterflash
    Ozzy Osbourne
    Wall of Voodoo
    Stray Cats
    Men At Work
    Oingo Boingo
    Motley Crue
    U2
    English Beat
    Triumph
    Berlin
    Joe Walsh
    Stevie Nicks
    Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul
    INXS
    The Pretenders
    A Flock of Seagulls
    Judas Priest
    Missing Persons
    Scorpions
    Van Halen (with David Lee Roth)
    source:

    Who is still together from that list? Quiet Riot? (Do they count?) Ozzy most certainly still has his own niche to be considered "contemporary". Motley Crue (sorta)? U2, definitely. Is Triumph even still together? I saw them 7th row once in like 1985 or something and now they just *poof* disappeared. I guess the Scorpions core is still performing together.

    Flock of Seagulls. Man. Probably one of the first MTV-produced hits that went nowhere quick. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Triumph isn't together, don't expect a reunion anytime soon either. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    The Scorpions have a new drummer, but the rest of the band is still together. [img]smile.gif[/img]
