I had the whole world figured out by the time I was 15, but little did I know that in a year’s time my world would be turned upside down and I would be torn away from everything I knew and forced to start a new life in a place that might as well have been Mars as it was so different from the world I had left behind. It sucked, but I learned a couple of important lessons that would stay with me even to this day.
Ah, but that’s another story for another time. Back to 1983 and being 15 and in Love with MTV. At that point in my life, it was true, video really had killed the radio. Me and all of my friends were MTV junkies. We’d sit around and watch videos for hours.
Ah yes, sweet videos.
