Mine is embarrassing. Very embarrassing. I like to think of myself as a rock chick. I even tried to play the guitar and failed. But my first gig was New Kids On The Block. It gets worse. I didn't even like NKOTB by the time of the gig. I had bought Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction and it had blown my mind. Sadly, there I was with hair that had been crimped wearing a NKOTB tshirt and baseball cap as per my mother's demands at the Birmingham NEC Arena. It certainly was not rock 'n' roll. What everyone's first gig?

@TiarasOceanView There's some good things about NKOTB. this is how joe McIntyre turned out when he grew up. I mean that's pretty nice.

@teamfreak16 That is too damn cool. That is the thing I've heard all. Even better than the guy who met his girlfriend's dad who turned out to be Jimmy page. He then proceeded to tell Jimmy just how much better a guitar player he was than Jimmy page and how much better he would of been in led zep, not getting the fact that he was talking to jimmy page. He got dumped the next day
