The first record that meant anything to me was when I was 11 years old hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time. Soundgarden, STP, and everything else made sense then. You heard that song and thought; "yeah this is it..".
Keep in mind the first actual record I heard and remember quite vividly was (remembering my parents had a lot of records)... was Gimme Shelter on Let It Bleed from the Rolling Stones. When I was younger I pulled out the record with a song I knew and genuinely liked as a 6 year old and played it over and over again with Bob Seger and Fleetwood Mac. It was music to my ears so to speak.
I remember about 15 years ago introducing my dad to Nirvana. He liked Come As You Are because there was no "bullshit".
I took this of him a year ago and i'm proud of it as this is how he is. He is used to his daughter with a camera - so no need to pose.
