First album
I remember getting a cheap Best of John Lee Hooker CD and buying a 10-disc holder to store it—it took me about a year to fill.

First concert
My first two gigs were a band called Status Quo. I’m not sure they ever made it to Canada, but  the released their 100th single last year. They kind of play boogie rock with questionable lyrics.

Last album
Spectral Dust by Evening Hymns. I saw him play a house concert at the end of last year and haven’t stopped listening to it.

Last concert
Jeff Stuart & the Hearts at the Artery, one of my favourites.

Favourite album
Thin Lizzy, Live and Dangerous has probably had more plays than any other in my lifetime.

Favourite musical guilty pleasure
I’m not sure I feel guilty about it but “Mama Used to Say” by Junior would probably be considered one. It’s the greatest song ever written, the video has him in a cardboard cutout bath tub—definitely worth a YouTube search. V
