What was the first concert you ever saw?
My first on-my-own show was Reggae on the River 1998 to see Yami Bolo and the Marley kids.
What CDs are in your changer right now?
A French hip-hop mix with MC Solaar and Ol' Kainry and others; Limbeck; The Fray; White Stripes; and James Blunt.
How many total albums do you own (CDs, vinyl, cassettes, 8-tracks)?
300? 500? I have no clue.
Do you download music, and if so, legally or illegally?
My house doesn't even have a phone jack, so the Internet is pretty much out.
What was the first album you owned?
Paul Simon's Graceland--I think I was 5, and I loved "You Can Call Me Al."
What song would you like to have played at your funeral?
"Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake.
Musically speaking, what do you love that your friends don't know about? What's your favorite guilty pleasure?
I have an unhealthy addiction to Making the Band 3 on MTV, and I like their "ooh-la-la-la" song. A lot. Damn that P. Diddy.
What band or artist changed your life, and how?
Otis Redding. "(Sittin' on) the Dock of the Bay" was the first song I felt in my soul. It was with him I realized music was more than sound; it's a feeling.
Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?
This is a tough one. I will say the Bob Marley's 1976 Live at the Roxy in Hollywood, because it is as close to a live show as I will ever get.
