I don’t really listen to rock music that much anymore. My tastes in rock were formed by listening to KSAN and KYA in San Francisco during the late 60’s. When I moved to New York in 1975, I started listening to jazz.
The last rock LP (vinyl to you kids) I bought was Thriller, when it came out in 1982. The New York Times’ John Rockwell praised the album in his review, so I went to King Karol on 42nd Street and bought it. You can still get the vinyl Thriller LP at Amazon.com.
