Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?

No. Although a few years ago, I illegally downloaded Nirvana's "You Know You're Right." I didn't want any of my money to get into Courtney Love's dirty hands.

What was the first album you owned?

I was given Cinderella Night Songs for my 7th birthday.

"I Just Wasn't Made for These Times" by the Beach Boys, followed by "Sleepwalk" by Santo and Johnny.

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

My friends aren't aware of how much I love Ryan Adams. I am also obsessed with Tori Amos.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

There are so many! The early rock 'n' roll and Motown shaped my childhood. Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, etc. ... Hendrix provided the soundtrack to my dreams. Dylan opened my eyes wide. Nirvana inspired me to start my first band. The list goes on ...

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

It's different every day. Yesterday, it was Dylan's Blonde on Blonde. Tomorrow could see some Zeppelin or Pixies. Today, it's The Beatles' "White Album."
