NAME: Matt Maguire
BAND AFFILIATION: The Lawrence/Maguire Quintet
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … so long ago that I forgot. It may have been “Crosby Stills & Nash” (with “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes”) or CSNY’s “Deja Vu” (“Woodstock,” “Our House,” etc.)
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Probably the Young Rascals at the University at Albany. Or the famous early-’70s Chicago concert at SPAC, which drew a big crowd that was then unprecedented. My mom sat next to me the whole time with her hands over her ears – and says to this day she loved that concert even though it was too loud.
