“I’m sick to death of people saying we’ve made 11 albums that sound exactly the same. In fact, we’ve made 12 albums that sound exactly the same.”

Ever wonder what your taste in Classic Rock means? John K. Peck is here to help; a sample:

The Doors: You have been bitten by an animal while trying to get it stoned.

Ted Nugent: Your hair has at some point been caught in a ceiling fan, boat propeller, or lathe.

Led Zeppelin: The first three things you smoked were banana peels, catnip, and poppies, in that order.

The Grateful Dead: Your stories about the ‘70s make your daughter’s roommates at Tufts very uncomfortable.

AC/DC: You only remove your socks to shower, and then only reluctantly.

Kiss: You have partied on a boat in a driveway.

The Byrds: There is a thin layer of sand on the bottom shelf of your fridge.

The Band: You have misspelled your name while carving it into a picnic table.

Slade: You have smoked speed through a TV antenna.

Joe Jackson: You are an excellent speller.

Van Morrison: You have had to use bolt cutters to remove a mood ring.

Don McLean: You have used a lint roller on a dropped piece of toast.

James Gang: You have eaten two consecutive meals in a hot tub.

Vanilla Fudge: You have slept in a bathtub for two or more consecutive nights.

As we stroll down memory lane, we might recall that on this date in 1989 the number on song in the U.S. was soap opera star and vocalist Michael Damian‘s cover of David Essex‘s “Rock On.”
