My love for music and records started at around age 8. I hung out in record stores as a kid … a lot. I began working in them in 1986. Spent 20+ years at Record & Tape Traders, managing many of their stores. Also had a stint with Waxie Maxie's. When I started, it was all vinyl and tapes. Then the CD era hit and sadly the vinyl disappeared. You can say I’ve come full circle with vinyl returning to the core of music sales. Long live vinyl & rock on! Favorite music: Rock n Roll (of course) Favorite group: Beatles (of course) Favorite artist: Jimi Hendrix My taste is all over the map, but to name a few - Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Kinks, Animals, Small Faces, Pretty Things, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, Badfinger, Raspberries, Floyd, Rory Gallagher, Roxy, Mott, Queen, Free, T Rex, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield, NY Dolls, MC5, Sex Pistols, Clash, Jam, Stooges and so on.
