What album was your game changer?

"…It was the first time I ever went to a concert completely on my own, and I was up against the stage and not only did it bring me a lot of comfort, but it's still one of the best shows I ever went to because I got to watch them play this album that shaped me so much during my formative years of playing music.…"

"…And up to the very minute of you being a father, it was just beautiful. So thank you for that. And I'll come back to the conversation, I'm sure later. But I just want to thank you for just taking us into this beautiful memory you have and this appreciation, it's really compelling and thoughtful. And listen to that out now. So thanks so much.…"

Beautiful 🙏

"…I want to say for very personal reasons, I felt like that was a transformative album. It also was like a time where I felt DeFore and progressive metal was going through a sort of evolution. And I feel like they are at the helm of that. And then also the next game changer for me in 2008, when Machuga's Obsen came out. Now that's not everybody's favorite Michigan album. It is not their first album. It's actually their fifth album, but it was something else.…"

"…Thank you so much. I really appreciate that there's a ton of albums that mean a lot to me, but that's definitely one that stood out. Yeah. I definitely appreciate the kind words.…"

"…And it was only in College when I started to kind of hoard a bunch of music that was inspiring to me. So I remember Super Tramp being a part of my life when I was very young, not too young. I think I was in high school, but, yeah, that's also part of the story. I think for sure I didn't have a lot of variety to go on. So yeah, that was the one.…"

"…And I had to go to the emergency room and stuff, and I just sat down and listened to that song or that album. I don't know. It just rewoke so many feelings and so many, like, just images and stuff. Kind of was like a good trip. Yeah. So I think that changed my life. I'm a musician. So I think music has definitely affected me to the point.…"

"…And Bobby would play like, Lori Anderson Records. He was right on the cusp of everything. And one day he's like, hey, you got to listen to this when I listened to it, actually, you know what? I should play it. I'm going to play just what I heard on that day. It was side one song one. Yeah.…"

"…Hey, Phil, those are such cool choices. Yeah. Stevie Rayvon was just something else. He was unbelievable. And that's so cool that he got to have that conversation with my ancestor too. And I think he's also another and massively underrated guitars and Stevie Wonder albums, too. My next one will be about some of my Stevie Wonder stories because I have had many encounters owners with them. So yeah, I'll try to post one of those tonight.…"
