Knocking on Heaven's Door

Cable television was not available to me during high school. I was aware of popular music through radio and magazines, but not MTV. In fact, it wasn't until midway through high school that my parents purchased a color television. I watch Guns -N- Roses perform Knocking on Heaven's Door with new insight into an era I am familiar with but oddly a unfamiliar with this 15 year old video.

I hope all this research will yield a decent short story.

    Matt,
    All this 80's stuff takes me back, it is awsome - it 's you just "pour some sugar on me!" heh heh heh. SaraAnn mocks the 80's, but they were obviously the epitamy of class and taste!

    Despite some of the distracting fashion statements (in the video--like what's up with the plaid shirt doubling as a kilt?), the music production is stellar.

    Yeah, it's been interesting revisiting the '80s as I work on this short story.
