1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Oh boy, that’s a long time ago. I bought a lot of records then. I bought Beatles albums, Chuck Berry, all kinds of albums. I can’t tell you which one I bought first, but one I remember buying was “A Day in the Life” by Wes Montgomery. I always liked his playing.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Oh man, it must have been James Brown over in Albany somewhere. Not the Palace, it was a club. Somewhere that’s closed now. They had a lot of places to see music back then that are closed now.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … Guitar. I always played guitar.
