5 albums I can’t live without

rubber core, Beatles

I love every song on this album for sound, lyrics and vocals. It reminds me of a time when my family and I lived in Portugal. It was hard to find music back then, especially when I was young, but I was so glad I bought this album in England while traveling to visit my grandparents. Thanks, Beatles.

Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin

This is the album that made me want to be a drummer, even though I’m not a drummer, or not until recently. I ended up as a guitarist because my dad didn’t like there being drums at home. I was given a Spanish guitar instead for Christmas one year. This Zeppelin album is brilliant from start to finish. It has the best guitar riffs and performances, and truly amazing production. Thank you Jimmy Page, thank you John Bonham, thank you Robert Plant and thank you JP Jones.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Elton John

I love Elton and Bernie songs, especially this album. It’s so awesome. I got to see Elton play it live in Vancouver in 1973, I was about 14. Even to this day, I don’t think I’ve seen a better show. He was dancing on his piano in a suit with neon balls on it, unforgettable. A great album. Thanks Elton.

tattoo you, The rolling stones

My friend Bob Clearmountain mixed this record, and I love the way the album is put together. The star is “Start Me Up” which does exactly what it’s supposed to do…but the production of “Waiting On A Friend” is awesome, I love the vocals and guitar sounds. Thank you, Mick and Keith!

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders of Mars, david bowie

I love everything about this album. From Mick Ronson’s arrangements and guitar to Bowie’s brilliant songwriting, and what a band he had at the time. I toured South America with David and we also did a gig with Tina Turner a few years earlier; he was always so nice. Ronson used to come to our gigs and we had talked about working together, but unfortunately he left before we had the chance. Thanks David.
