What kind of car did you drive, BC?   I’m trying figure out if we would’ve been buds are sworn enemies.

Actually... i was pretty simple minded back in the day.   I liked everybody except the current gf’s exes.   There seemed to be an obligation to hate them.   Not sure why.

And too soon mullet guy.  I hated too soon mullet guy.

I wore my hair to my shoulders until the summer of 1980 when I decided to follow Glenn Frey’s lead on the Long Run album and cut it short and go preppy.  And thus I was until around the time of Steve Perry’s Oh Sherry video  (1984) when I decided to grow a mullet which I wore until about 1990 or1991 when I decided to go with a long banged grown out bowl cut I could shake into place with a toss of the head.

Yeah I was that guy and I hated pre-Oh Sherry mullet guy with a fashion.

What I loved however were the green haired mohawk Drag kids of the early 80s.   They just wanted to be different but ironically there were so freak8ng many of them.

Steve Perry was wearing a mullet before Oh Sherry.  He was pretty much all long-hair for Escape, but for just about every video off Frontiers, he was sporting that classic Perry-mullet.

So what makes his first solo hit the distinguishing break in time for you?

I drove my mom's Pontiac Catalina for almost a year.  (Got a "hardship" license at 15)  Saved a little dough and bought a '79 Z28.  My dad co-signed for me.  Black on black, gold striping.  Put Cragar mags on it and those stupid aluminum louvers on the back window.  Installed Pioneer sound system.

If I wasn't driving that car, I would sometimes just sit in the yard and stare at it.

I may have been too soon mullet guy.  I wore my hair long but I also enjoyed the punk rocker look on top.

If you think about it, that's really kinda what a mullet came to be.  The punk rock look combined with the hard rocker look.

Infinity thru Frontiers was a good run for Journey.

Indeed it was.  Raised on Radio and the Visionquest Soundtrack had some good Journey tunes, too.  But for complete whole albums, that Infinity-Frontiers run is hard to top.
