    • there is no G or I’d have given him that…worst concert I ever went to- it wasn’t my idea I went with a couple friends- torture.

  1. Wow! I had no ideas that Kenny G and Michael Bolton were brothers. I was sixteen that year and I remember most of the songs on this list, my favorites are “Girls, Girls, Girls” by Motley Crue (they were my favorite band in those days), “Right on Track,” and “Head to Toe.”
