O/T: Friday Five

Copped from LJ and somebody else’s site.

1. What band has made the biggest impact in your life, and why?

I don’t know. There are lots of different bands I’ve liked over the years and it’s hard to say which one of them made the biggest effect on me, especially over the long term.

2. What album is the first you can remember purchasing yourself?

Geez, it was probably Duran Duran’s “Rio.” It’s not the first pop or rock album I ever received though. That would be Pat Benatar’s “Crimes of Passion.”

3. What concert stands out in your mind as the best you’ve ever seen?

Star Wars In Concert or John Williams at the Hollywood Bowl. But in the pop/rock/EDM/whatever category, I’ll say it’s a tossup among Depeche Mode with Nitzer Ebb in 1990, The Cure with Cranes in 1992, and New Order in 1993, which was the last time the original 1980s lineup ever toured together. Honorable mentions go to Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cramps, Nine Inch Nails, and Sting. Oh, and The Gipsy Kings are really good live.

4. What concert stands out in your mind as the worst you’ve ever seen?

fIREHOSE. I don’t remember how or why I was at their show at the old Blue Note in Columbia, MO back in 1989-ish but boy were they awful. The opening band sucked even worse than they did. It was painful listening to them and I couldn’t wait to leave.

5. If you could create your dream band, what musicians would you choose? (they can be live or dead, it’s a dream band)

Jack White and Jack Black. So you can have Jack White and Jack Black in the same band.
