I’m taking the idea from Frank:
First Record Bought: I’m sure it was something Rush.
First Concert: I think it was Stryper (and man, am I embarassed about that)
Favourite Music Movie: Spinal Tap or Standing In The Shadows Of Motown
Favourite Music Book: Jaco
Favourite Songwriter: Richard Bona
Favourite Record Label: Real World
Favourite Magazine: I usually avoid the rags.
Favourite Bassist: Wow, there’s a long list. If I have to say one and only one, I’ve got to go with Victor.
Favourite Album Cover: Schroeder’s Greatest Hits — so retro.
(In a new category)Least Favourite Album Cover: Boys For Pele — Tori Amos
Favourite Teen Idol: Umm… Hillary Duff. Sure.
Artist Who Broke Your Heart: Jimmy Buffett. I used to like his stuff until I realized it was all the same. Every last note of it.
Artist You Will Always Believe In: Prince. Miles of talent, always worth paying attention to.
Singer Who Makes You Swoon: Norah Jones. And the Indigo Girls (Emily if solo, but together, their harmonies usually stop me cold).
Favourite Sound: Well played, correctly intonated fretless bass.
Album You Will Always Defend: Moving Pictures — Rush. Yeah, it’s their most commercial, but it’s still got some great work on it.
Album You Own That No One Else Does: Let The Kid Play — Isaiah Williams.
Classic Album You Own but Don’t Like: The Very Best — 10cc.
Artist You’re Supposed to Like but Don’t: Wilco. Maybe I just haven’t given them enough of a chance, but I don’t quite get all excited like others seem to do.
Song You Can’t Stand by an Artist You Like: Volare by Gipsy Kings. The first 30,000 times, it was okay….
