Page 2 of 2

When you put your key in the ignition and turn on the radio, what station would play right now? I bounce around between the cable channels and ESPN because I'm a big sports fan.

What's the first album you bought? All I could afford were 45s when I was a kid. And my first one was The Beatles' "She Loves You." First album that really sticks out to me was Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John.

What's the first concert you saw? I saw both Stevie Wonder and Elton John in my high school days. I think Stevie was first. They were both huge in the '70s. Huge.

What's your favorite concert you've ever been to? Paul McCartney in Glendale three years ago. Anybody else remember when he played "Lady Madonna"?

What's the last song played on your music player? Coldplay's "Warning Sign."

Preferred format: CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-track, or digital? Digital. I can usually get the grocery shopping done in 10 songs. What's your favorite album? James Taylor's October Road.

Who is your favorite singer or band? Depends on the decade. '70s: Led Zeppelin. '80s: Jude Cole. '90s: Garth Brooks. Now: Snow Patrol.

What band do you wish was still together? Not even close: Led Zeppelin.
