BAND AFFILIATION: The Charlie Watts Riots
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I actually bought three cassettes simultaneously from Columbia House Record Club. J. Geils Band’s Freeze Frame, the Rolling Stones’ Tattoo You and Abacab by Genesis. I got three new records for a penny, and my mother was stuck paying full price for 12 more records over the following two years!
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … The Steve Miller Band at the Palace Theatre. I went with a couple of girls that I went to high school with; we thought it was the best to be out that late on a school night. Unfortunately, it was his Born 2B Blue tour, and half the show he was playing covers of old jazz standards!
