NAME: Dave Graham, aka Davey BLiSTeR
BAND AFFILIATION: ThE BLiSTeRz
INSTRUMENT: Guitar and vocals

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “Kiss Alive II” on vinyl. You can’t go wrong with Kiss when you are a young, aspiring air guitarist! I still dig them. Their new album, “Sonic Boom,” is great, by the way.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … I think it was Eddy Grant in the old gymnasium at Union College in Schenectady. It was back when his big hit, “Electric Avenue,” was climbing the charts. I remember being in awe when he played the guitar with his teeth like Jimi Hendrix. Amazing show!

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … a used KAY acoustic guitar that I bought for $50 through a newspaper classified ad. I still have that guitar and even still use it to write songs on occasionally, despite the body being cracked and the action kinda high. It has sentimental value!
