5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:
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.
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.
Revolver, The Beatles
The Beatles start to experiment and create the most perfect modern pop record ever. It never gets old.
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.
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.
