Wired for music

Music was one of my first memories. I remember watching Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall on television in the early eighties, and also listening to Simon & Garfunkel’s Concert in the Park on cassette, before I was even in school. Oh, and vinyl sweet vinyl. From my first pop albums, Guns and Roses and Def Leppard in the eighties, to the first blues LP’s I heard in the nineties. John Lee Hooker, John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers and Chuck Berry. I never lost the passion for the spinning black circles even though the nineties and naughties were less kind to the format.

Best of all is, you can enjoy it with friends during the good times. And similar to reading a book, it’s a time machine that actually works. I’ve always been a music explorer, it’s in my blood.
