Nine Questions 

In addition to playing bass in local heavy rock band (and we do mean heavy) Great American Tragedy, Larry Horvath has worked at Club Congress on and off for the last 14 years, currently as a bartender in the Tap Room. He has a passion for all people and things downtown Tucson, and he would like you to know that he is the proud father of a 2-year-old son, Aidan. Catch Great American Tragedy tonight, Thursday, Oct. 12, at Vaudeville Cabaret.

What was the first concert you ever saw?

Joan Jett and Chuck Berry as part of a radio station fest in San Diego. I think I was 10.

What CDs are in your changer right now?

No changer here, but I've been listening to tons of blues lately--mostly Lightnin' Hopkins.

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

I've worn out, lost or had stolen hundreds.

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

I don't personally, but I also don't question where free musical gifts come from.

What was the first album you owned?

The 12-inch of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight."

What song would you like to have played at your funeral?

"The Lonely Bull" by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

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

Bad '80s synth-pop, the cheesier the better--putting on an '80s satellite station and getting my sing on.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

It would probably have to be Black Sabbath. I listened to a lot of my dad's psychedelic records from the '60s, and they just never seemed to be heavy enough. That's definitely what sent me down the heavy path that I just can't seem to get away from.

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

Bad Brains, Rock for Light.
