Which friend or acquaintance most influenced your taste in music?
Submitted by Rev Stan.
Difficult one! I'm going to say, my friend Lydia. If they rocked in the 1980s and 1990s, she's seen them and probably met them, and her photos and survivor's stories were so cool I started to go with her – so I too became a lycra-wearing big-haired stadium rock queen. Kiss, Def Leppard, Guns and Roses (before Axl disappeared up his own arse), Skid Row, Poison, Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Whitesnake…still love them, even though the only lycra I wear these days is in my bra.
