My Musical Autobiography Part 1

I’ve seen the movie High Fidelity a bajillion times. I love it. I can relate to it in every way. I am each of the characters in that movie. A lifetime of music obsession has made me into those characters. So when my friend, Tim Rayne, asked me to come co-host his morning show “Instant Breakfast” on CHSR FM, I jumped at the chance. Every Monday he does something called Vinyl Mondays where he invites a guest in to spin their autobiography via vinyl. It was very difficult to whittle my selections down for one hour. Tim and I could easily have talked for three hours. I just simply couldn’t play it all. I decided to skip that standards of my musical DNA…Led Zeppelin, SRV, Guns N Roses, The grateful Dead, Neil Young, Pink Floyd…I opted not to go with them and instead go with some other pivotal moments that helped shape my life.  Music that simply went deeper than…”The first time I heard Zeppelin, man”. Hell, I didn’t even like Zeppelin the first time I heard it. Hendrix too! Of course I grew to LOVE these artists but still, there were albums in my collection that tell the story of who I actually am, and I wanted to give listeners a little more depth. So, here it is, if you’re interested, my musical autobiography part one.
