George Millar, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?

The Irish Rovers

The Irish Rovers

“The first one I bought was by Buddy Holly, and as I recall, I bought it just shortly before he was killed, actually. I think it was ‘That’ll Be the Day’ or one of those, but back in Ireland in those days, they were big, heavy 78 RPM records.

That’s what really sparked my interest in music. I was about 11 or so when Buddy Holly came out, and right away I started playing a cheap guitar. That type of rockabilly music like Buddy Holly and Rick Nelson was what I quite liked.”

George Millar and the other members of the Irish Rovers step into the spotlight at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, Mass. on Thursday (March 11).
