73%. That's realistic. Nobody I ran with wore bell bottoms. Me and my friends were cool.

I saw Plant and Page together. I think it was the late 90s. Unfortunately Plant had sing everything an octave lower.

Honored to say I saw Led Zeppelin twice life at MSG. Despised disco music. Early SN was good. Not into Star Wars or earth shoes.

60% Similar. Meh....ok. Proud to say that I'm among the 7% that saw Led Zeppelin live...had to sneak out of the house to do so. 6/10/77 MSG! \m/

As I was in single digits for most of the seventies, age-wise, and my memory is a bit fuzzy that far back, I had to guess on some of them.

And while I did wear bell bottoms (I think) I don't believe it was of my own free will.

Bell bottoms were actually cool....unless they looked like the ones that the Brady boys wore. Led Zep wore bells, and you don't get much cooler than Led Zepellin.

* Japanese monster movies never impressed me so when Jaws came out my thought was "BFD, a measly shark." ♣

I turned fifteen in 1979, so I only got 73%. BTW I thought early SNL was stupid. Especially the claymation character that said "Oh NO!" and specially John Belushi in Samuri Warrior or whatever they called it, he was so jacked up on cocaine he didn't know what planet he was on obviously.

Back then it wasn't known as 'Saturday Night Live'.
Don't you remember MeTV?
It was, 'Live. From New York. It's Saturday Night.'
* Howard Cosell hosted an Ed Sullivan style variety show in prime time on ABC titled Saturday Night Live so the late night NBC show used title NBC's Saturday Night. After Cosell's show got cancelled they at NBC were allowed to change title to Saturday Night Live. Sadly since year 2000 it has devolved into Saturday Night Lame. β™

46% similar. I also have never seen Star Wars either. Maybe 10 minutes or so.

How could you *not* give it a chance? "Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope" is a *true^ classic!

1977 - I was 15 then - was the most symbolic time in my "Wonder Years." Seeing "Star Wars" for the first time with my cousin in Pennsylvania that summer holds some *very special* memories for me. Now whenever I decide to watch the DVD of "Episode IV: A New Hope" again, I have to wear my headphones, make sure the sound is in stereo, the picture conforms to all those THX tests on the disc, and *that I am undisturbed!*

To me, the memory of that first time is just *too sacred* to have it messed up by any outside annoyances.

The bell bottoms I wore were given to me by my Uncle, Uncle Sam. They were issued to me in Coast Guard boot camp!

60% similar. Having attended primary school throughout the 1970s had its restrictions.
6. Have never watched Jaws in its entirety. All the overhype surrounding it when it was released was a huge turnoff.
7. Wanted to watch SNL in its first five years but never did because of family obligations to go to mass the next morning.
11. Older brother was a Fleetwood Mac fan.
13. Have never watched any Star Wars movies in its entirety. Just not interested.

See my above reply to Mrs. Phil Harris.

Also, having lived in Lansing, Michigan from 1971 to 1978, there were *no* discos in that city - or East Lansing - so about as close to that as I, and my younger sister, came was the music on the radio.
