entire area is dedicated to music and music collecting.
been interested in music since I was little, and I started taking piano
lessons when I was seven. I started playing by ear when I was 11 or so,
I remember picking out "Classical Gas" by Mason WIlliams, which is a
guitar piece, on the piano. I moved on to stuff by the Beatles
and the piano parts to Rolling Stones songs.
the summer of 1971 I started playing in bands, and I also learned how
to play the guitar from Bob Zentz, a very popular folk singer in the
Norfolk Va. region. He also had a guitar and music shop called Ramblin'
Conrad's, where I hung out.
started collecting vinyl albums in 1972, when I was a junior in high
school. My first favorites from this time period were Elton John, the
Moody Blues, Emerson Lake and Plamer, and Yes. I also started taping
live concerts off the radio.
the time I graduated from college in 1980, I had a very extensive vinyl
collection. I also was still playing. In 1982 I joined a punk
band called Front Line, and began hanging out with Jeff Clites, who had
a huge bootleg collection that I began to sponge off of. Jeff is
the source of about two thirds of my bootleg collection.
died in 2002.
2002 I began transferring the bootleg tapes to CD, but I use a seperate
component on my stereo, not my computer. So My bootleg CD's are not MP3
and do not sound flat.
site also contains my musical opinions, and my ideas of good movies.
See if we agree.
