NAME: Kevin McKrell
BAND: Melick, Moody & McKrell
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The first album I ever purchased was by Herman’s Hermits. Uncool as it may seem, it had great tunes: “I’m Into Something Good,” “Sea Cruise,” “Mrs. Brown.” The first album I ever owned was a present from my parents, also a very cool recording, The Kingston Trio’s “Live at the Hungry I.”
2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Not really sure about this. The Allman Brothers at SPAC or the Star Spangled Washboard Band at Columbia High School in East Greenbush. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … The first guitar I ever played was Jeff Strange’s Guild Madiera. The first I ever owned was a Guild D-40 C, which thankfully I still own and play.
