What was your favorite childhood band or artist? Are you still a fan?
While shopping with my dad when I was about 7 or 8 he went into a record store to buy himself a Rolling Stones album. While there I saw a bright yellow and pink LP and asked my dad if he would buy it for me. It just looked pretty and my dad bought records which meant grown ups bought records and I wanted to be a grown up.
Since I'd never asked for a record before and up to that point had only used my plastic turntable to play story records my dad figured "Why not?"
When I played it I had no fucking idea what the singer was talking about but I knew it didn't sound like anything my dad played - and I liked it.
I remember a couple days later asking my dad what a "Sex Pistol" was and he responded "When you are old enough to understand, you will."
