Building off the concept of this thread... http://www.harmonycentral.com/t5/Electric-Guitars/So-you-wanna-play-rock-guitar-Essential-listening/m-p/35448255#U35448255
But, instead of telling someone else what to listen to what albums were you listening to early on in your playing that gave you the base for how you play as a musician? Since I've started playing my influences have grown vastly to include some stuff that doesn't even have a guitar on the album. Early on these were the albums I was cutting my teeth to....
In no order...
Appetite for Destruction - Guns N' Roses
Live at the Regal - BB King
The Very Best of Albert King - Albert King
Live at Donnington - AC/DC
Live at the Fillmore - Allman Brothers Band
One More From the Road - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Get Your YaYas Out - Rolling Stones
Live! Bootleg - Aerosmith
Nevermind - Nirvana
Truth - Jeff Beck Group
Box Set - Led Zeppelin
Not exactly par for the course for a kid growing up in the 90s, although I did enjoy listening to Nevermind a lot and could actually play songs on the album with our garage band. I actually didn't own any of the individual Led Zeppelin albums, but I had a 4 cd box set I picked up on sale from BMG or Columbia House for like $15. Man... that was a great deal!
