wear your love

Writer's Block: Neat, sweet, groovy songs

What was your favorite childhood band or artist? Are you still a fan?

I've always been a big music fan, but the Beatles were important to me for more than their own music - they opened the door for the British Invasion, and I still love that music.

Before the Beatles, I especially loved Ricky Nelson, The Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly. I do still have all of them in my playlist rotation.

1963-64 was a pivotal year for me - I encountered for the first time Lord of the Rings, The Man from U.N.C.L.E, and The Beatles --- these are still my true fandoms.
