These were the jeans I'd always wear to gigs in Manchester in the mid/late 80s, and over time I added patches, bleach, safety pins, etc. Eventually, my mum complained about "the state of them!" and insisted I threw them out. I would go out wearing other jean,s with these jeans in a plastic bag, and would change into them on the train. There are four Black Sabbath patches, one Led Zeppelin, and one Kerrang. I added the beer towel to cover a massive hole I accidenally created with the over-enthusiastic use of bleach.
This is a school picture of me and my brother from about 1984. Just visible is my Black Sabbath T-shirt and his AC/DC one. Though I was only 9 at the time I can clearly remember asking to be bought the T-shirts while we were on holiday in Blackpool, or was that Bridlington? At that time I don't think either of us particularly owned or listened to our own music and I'm pretty sure we didn't know who Sabbath or AC/DC were so the only explanation I have for wanting those shirts was because they looked cool! Mine had a picture of the grim reaper on the front and his a man being electrocuted. 26 years later though and I can honestly say I love Sabbath and can't think of a cooler picture of me as a kid...well there is that one of us in Scarborough standing with Darth Vader.
