me and my driver had pretty much the same taste in music but our TC liked oldies like The Everly Brothers and Tommy James and The Shondells and our loader was into rap like Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre. hell, before I met him, I thought N.W.A. was National Wrestling Alliance. I had a boombox with AM/FM and short wave but while we were rolling the driver had his walkman wired into the intercom and he had a mix tape with everything from AC/DC to Stevie Ray Vaughn. I remember going through a mine field one night listening to Tight Rope.
Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, screamin'...HOLY SHIT!! What a Ride!!

I had a tape with Dead Kennedys - Bedtime for Democracy on one side and Intense Mutilation - Safe Sex on the other. While I was over there I bought two tapes in those plastic boxes that looked like mini-VHS boxes, anyone remember those? Black Crows - Shake Your Moneymaker and AC/DC - Blow Up Your Video. I'm pretty sure they were bootlegged tapes but whatever, I think I got them for $5 a piece.

Yea, I remember those bootlegs. I had a dozen or so of them. I eventually pawned them and the rest of my CDs at one point after I left the service and was broke as hell although I think I may still have 1 Scorpions bootleg tape and box soemwhere.
