1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … I honestly can’t remember, so I’ll answer this one with my first favorite record – Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Had it on vinyl in the early-mid ’80s.

BAND AFFILIATION: The City Never Sleeps
1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … “Europop” by Eiffel 65. I was about 10, and the only music I had at home were my parents’ classical or classic rock CDs, my brother’s rock mixes that he tapped off the radio and abandoned on dusty shelves and my own tapes off the radio. I remember I was at a book store with my parents and saw Eiffel 65 on display and recognized the “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” song from the radio. I just kind of stood there listening to it for what must have been 40 minutes. I thought it was so different from all the rock and classical music with all the over-produced synthetic sounds and the repetitive catchy hooks. I really loved that album at that time. I listen to it now, and it sounds kind of cheesy, but even today I play an acoustic rendition of “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” fairly regularly.
