Recently, I've had more than one person come up against me, saying I possibly couldn't truly love glam because I didn't live it.
"You're too young!" is the constant refrain.
At first, I laughed it off. Now, I'm just annoyed.
How dare people put an age requirement on fans of any type of music? Just because I wasn't on the Strip to see Poison party at the Rainbow in 1987 doesn't mean I can't truly love and appreciate the band. In fact, I'd argue saying a person is "too young" for this and "too old" for that is bigotry. Isn't the point of music to bring people together? This really has my hackles up. I don't even have much more to say on the subject, except love whatever form of music you choose - no matter your age. And don't judge others, based on age or taste. That's just ignorant.
Now, all that said, here's the most awesome video of Poison I have ever seen. "I Want Action" from around 1987 (in Ibiza maybe?). The performance is bonkers. There's a crazy pool party in the middle of the show, too. And look at the hair! In all honesty, this is maybe the best live glam clip I've ever seen. I can't believe it's taken me this long to find it!
