1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I mainly bought 45s when I was a kid and listened to my parents’ records, but the first album that I bought with my own money was George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass.” Love the sound of that record!

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … Leslie West & Mountain at the Palace Theatre. My ears are still ringing from that concert!

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … A drum set from Montgomery Ward’s that I got for Christmas – the kind with cardboard drum heads and a colorful Hawaiian scene on the bass drum. I tore through that set in five minutes, and then my parents took me out and bought me a set of white marine pearl Ludwig’s … I wish I still had that set!
