BAND AFFILIATION: Red Haired Strangers
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “Outlandos d’Amour” by the Police
2. THE FIRST CONCERT I EVER SAW WAS … Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jeff Beck at RPI
3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … The first instrument I ever played was the piano in the basement that my parents got as a wedding gift. Occasionally, the front plate would fall off and hit you in the knees. I guess it was a good introduction to the world of music. It taught you to always be ready for the unexpected. The first instrument I ever owned was a Special 20 harmonica by Hohner.
4. THE FIRST SONG I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … “Sweet Jane” at the Battle of the Bands at the local bowling alley. We lost to a band called Aztec. Goes to show you can never go wrong with naming yourself after fierce warriors from long ago.
5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS …. The Blue Dolphin Kids
