“The first records that I ever owned I didn’t buy. They were given to me. It was Kiss’ ‘Alive II,’ Kiss’ ‘Destroyer’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall.’ Those three records were given to me when I was in the third grade.
Before that, I’d listen to my parents’ music – Gordon Lightfoot, Al Jarreau and stuff like that.”
