Nine Questions 

Congratulations to Chris Brooks, 37, who is getting married April 17 to the wonderful Coleen Clark. A local water witch (or a hydrologist, if you want to be technical about it), Brooks calls himself "a local music snob transitioning to crusty old fart."

What was the first concert you ever saw?

Billy Squier opened up for Alice Cooper at Navy Pier in Chicago and was forced off stage by booing and food throwing.

What CDs are in your changer right now?

Don't have (a) changer.

How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?

I think the word "album" only applies to vinyl, of which I have roughly 200.

Do you download music, and if so, legally?

NO and NO.

What was the first album you owned?

Night at the Opera, by Queen. My mother would only let me buy it if I was sure there was no profanity on it. I did and found the word "ass" in one song.

What song would you like played at your funeral?

"Movin' to Florida" by the Butthole Surfers.

Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

One should never feel guilty about pleasure.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

Pete Townshend made it possible to get thru adolescence by writing Quadrophenia.

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

See above.
