Re: (TV) OT: Earliest memory of rock

As a french-canadian I was primarily raised off the 78's of my mother's chansionniers collection. So I grew up listening to a lot of Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens, Serge Gainsbourg,etc. and that solidified the importance of lyric and poetry in my life. Brel wrote such beautiful yet tortured words. I moved in on that when I started songwriting.

On my dad's side it was mostly country/western and some stones, beach boys, etc. Of course i hated c/w as a kid but I've learned to appreciate it some more while growing up. at 11 my dad took me to see Johnny Cash and June Carter at the Sportsplex Arena in my hometown and there is a polaroid floating around of me, my dad, and johnny cash. I should dig that up. it would give me some serious cred.

My parents also owned a weightlifting gym during the 80's so if I ever hear the soundtrack to either:
2)Miami Vice

I might:

a) Start foaming from the mouth
b) Cry
c) Spontaneously combust

in trouble when I was three or four, cause the neighbor
from across the street had called and complained that I was
playing it too loud. I don't recall the first record I
bought with my money, but early faves from my parents
collection were the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, the
first two Cars records, Billy Joel's greatest hits, and a

Bill Joel's An Innocent Man is still one of my favorite records.

listening to some highly questionable stuff when I was 10
or 11, but thankfully that didn't last long.

At ten, I got an MC Hammer tape for christmas. There, I said it.
