Really want to be in  Right where I want to be.

Excited about  Motor Sister’s new album Get Off  (May 6).

Preferred format  Everything.

 

5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:

 

1
Let There Be Rock, AC/DC

 

I learned how to really play guitar by listening to this album over and over and over and over. And I also learned that head-banging was involuntary. It never gets old.

2
Alive, Kiss

 

The first record I bought for myself (in lieu of a birthday present for my dad). Comics, horror and rock covered in blood, fire and makeup. It was a shot straight to my cerebral cortex. It never gets old.

3
Revolver, 
The Beatles

 

The Beatles start to experiment and create the most perfect modern pop record ever. It never gets old.

4
Giant Steps
, John Coltrane

 

I’ve listened to this album for decades and I still hear something new every time I listen. The most revolutionary jazz album of all time in my not-so-humble opinion. It never gets old.

5
Requiem, Mozart

 

With all that time on my hands I could brush up on my Latin. It’s my favorite classical piece ever written, dark and beautifully moving. And…it never gets old.
