What I'm listening to
I don't have an iPod, but I own about a thousand CDs. Here are five I treasure like a Willy Wonka golden ticket:
Ted Nugent, "Ted Nugent"
Nugent's first studio album (post Amboy Dukes). One listen, and I was a Tedhead for life.
Molly Hatchet, "Double Trouble Live"
First concert I ever saw was Hatchet … or was it the second? Those were impressionable times. I idolized lead singer Danny Joe Brown.
Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Street Survivors"
This was released around the time the band's plane crashed. I had tickets for that tour … was 17 years old. The original cover, eerie.
Pearl Jam, Bootleg
Don't have the date and disc in front of me, but it was from the most recent tour and a show they did in Los Angeles near Universal Studios … went with Kenny Mayne. … Got some!
The Band, "The Last Waltz"
A sentimental pick. My oldest brother took me to the rocumentary when I was a teen. Neil Young and Neil Diamond on the same show! Plus, Muddy Waters, M-A-N!
