1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WAS … Weezer’s blue album. After I saw the “Buddy Holly” music video that came with Windows ’95.

3. THE FIRST MUSICAL INSTRUMENT I EVER OWNED OR PLAYED WAS … I had a drum set when I was twelve years old, but couldn’t get the coordination down, so I stopped playing music until I found an old classical guitar in my attic a few years later.

4. THE FIRST SONG THAT I EVER PERFORMED IN PUBLIC WAS … Neil Young’s “Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World.” High school talent show.

5. THE FIRST BAND I WAS EVER IN WAS … I played guitar in an acoustic band called ATB when I was nineteen years old. We played a few shows in Canada. Haha…
