When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? None. The radio stations and music selection up here in the Verde Valley is bleak. It's all about the iPod or some select CD's.
What's the first record you bought? Shit, I don't remember. It was probably either Abbey Road or Revolver.
What's the first concert you saw? Judas Priest, with Accept and Iron Maiden opening.
What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? A good friend named James brought me to see Ahmad Jamal, front row, at the Blue Note in New York City. Fucking amazing. I remember James saying that he (who has won Grammys) felt like a child watching Ahmad and his band.
