NAME: Pete Heitzman
BAND AFFILIATION: Karen Savoca
INSTRUMENT: Guitar and various strings
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … My mom and older sister had lots of Broadway and folk LPs, but my first purchase was Beatles ’65. I would jam my head right into the speaker for “I Feel Fine,” and that guitar tone still gives me chills.
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … I remember Johnny Puleo & the Harmonica Gang in 1959 at age seven, and they were phenomenal and hilarious, but my first rock event was a package show at LeMoyne College, Nov. 1967: Buffalo Springfield, Strawberry Alarm Clock, the Soul Survivors and the Beach Boys. Springfield had been my fave band at the time, so that was heaven.
