NAME: Fred Boak
BAND AFFILIATION: Chandler Travis
Philharmonic (and Chandler Travis Three-O)

INSTRUMENT: Voice, Vuvuzela and Valet to Chandler

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … The Beatles’ Let It Be – pretty sure I got both the 45 and the LP at the same time. I definitely remember being totally entranced by “You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)” (the flip of the “Let It Be” 45) and the fact that the single and album versions of “Let it Be” were different – oh, that Leslie guitar solo!

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … I like to say Frank Zappa (at age 15), though I saw both Woody Herman & His Young Thundering Herd and Maynard Ferguson play shows at the local high school, plus a whole bunch of classical shows, and I think even Nick Seeger at some Boy Scout event before that. But on my own, paying with my own money … Frank. Great lineup, too – Terry Bozzio on drums, Adrian Belew on guitar, Patrick O’Hearn on bass, Tommy Mars & Peter Wolf on keyboards, Ed Mann on percussion – the same lineup as in the “Baby Snakes” movie.
