This weekend, we’ll take you back the decade before we all discovered the internet! We lost John Bonham, Bon Scott, Bob Marley and John Lennon. We worried about AIDS and lined up to see E.T., Fatal Attraction, Raiders of the Lost Arc and Back to the Future. Pac-Man led the surge towards hand-held video games. Parents fought to grab Cabbage Patch Kids for their own children and everyone tried to solve Rubik’s Cube. We wore shoulder pads, jean jackets, jumpsuits and leg warmers and some of us even sported a mullet. And then there was the music!
Japanese-language short has been posted to YouTube under the auspices of his regular online Roth Show and the file is called DLRmovietrailer, but it’s not clear whether there’s a longer version in production.
This week, Doors co-founder and Keyboard player Ray Manzarek died of cancer. We’ve also lost former member of Uriah Heep and The Spiders from Mars, Trevor Bolder (pictured above) as well as Steve Hyams, a one-time member of Mott The Hoople.
