  • Ron Heathman

Ron Heathman is a big fan of fresh-roasted coffee. He played guitar in the Supersuckers for 21 years and graduated from Santa Rita High School a long time ago. He is currently working at Sparkroot Coffee Bar + Fare in downtown Tucson.

What was the first concert you attended?

Heart and Firefall at the Tucson Convention Center, in 1977, I believe. Mom took me. It was awesome.

What are you listening to these days?

At this moment, nothing, but in general, I am listening to Psychedelic Soul by the Temptations a lot. That and the last Black Keys record.

What was the first album you owned?

Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare. It was on 8-track.

What artist, genre or musical trend does everyone seem to love, but you just don't get?

Anything with blatant Auto-Tuning in it. That crap hits my ears ugly!

What musical act, current or defunct, would you most like to see perform live?

I would love to have seen Jimi Hendrix when he first arrived in England—if only to see the look on Eric Clapton's face.

Musically speaking, what is your favorite guilty pleasure?

I would say ABBA, but I don't feel guilty about that anymore. "Toxic" by Britney Spears. I love that song.

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

I do not want a funeral, but I suppose "Ramble On" by Led Zeppelin would be appropriate.

What band or artist changed your life, and how?

The Replacements! I first heard them on Virgin Vinyl hosted by Jonathan L. I haven't been the same since.

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

Exile on Main St.

  • Battle Acts: Sgt. Pepper Then vs. Sgt. Pepper Now

    We have no Summer of Love to ponder, no Vietnam War to protest, no miracle drug that's going to save us. But we do have an unpopular president and Sgt. Pepper to marvel over all over again. It's not the same, but it kinda is, and that's about the best splendid time that can be guaranteed for all in 2017.
