KISS' Tommy Thayer: 11 records that changed my life

By Matt Parker

“This was the first album that I ever purchased. Back then I used to buy a lot of singles and Looking Out Of My Back Door was a single that I loved, so I decided to buy the album that it was on.

"I loved their songs and I loved the way John Fogerty sang.I was probably about 10 or 11 years when I bought that, I’m guessing.

"There was a store called Fifth Avenue Records in Portland and I used to go down there and buy singles because they had the top 40 singles in order from 1-40 on the wall and you’d go in there and look at the covers and pick the singles you wanted to buy.”
