So I woke up this morning to find out on face book's news feed that Wayne Static of turn of the millennium nu-metal band Static- X had died. Static X was one of the openers for Powerman5000 at the very first concert I ever went to when I was 13. I had been to outdoor festivals that had plenty of well known acts with my parents before this but this was the first real concert I ever chose to go to. It was a few years before I got into what is considered good music and left my Hot Topic Teen angst music behind. I youtubed Static X, Powermann 5000, Orgy, and the rest of the stuff I used to listened to recently and was aghast at how horrible it was. I give them props to continuing to make music in what ever form their band took after they had peaked popularity wise, but good lord I don't know what I was thinking listening to that crap. Still, it is always nice to go down memory lane and this is the internet. Focus What was your first concert? Did your taste in music from your tweens stand the test of time?
