By way of my older brother, I was fortunate to get into music at a very early age. Real music. ROCK music! Before I dove headfirst into heavy metal around 1983, I used to sneak into my brother’s bedroom and dig through his vast record collection, despite the fact his room was “off limits” to me. I was mesmerized by the band names and album titles, and I listened intently with headphones while sitting on his bed and getting lost in the music. I remember albums by Boston, ELO, Kansas, Queen, Styx, Rush, and Billy Joel, to name a few.
Since those formative years, to say music has dominated my life would be an understatement. To me, music isn't a hobby; it's a way of life. You don't grow out of it. It gets inside of you and embodies your spirit. It moves and inspires you. It can provoke a million different emotions. Music can elevate you to the heavens or tear your heart right out of you chest... sometimes it can achieve both of these within the confines of a single song.
At any rate, I'm excited beyond belief to be hosting a monthly rock trivia night at my favorite local watering hole - The Corvette Grille - in my adopted hometown of Annville, PA.
Please join me on Sunday, November 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. for the inaugural "Second Sunday Rock Music Trivia." Come and flex your rock music trivia muscle for your chance to win some awesome prizes including Corvette gift certificates. We'll also have $3 Tröegs draft specials and some other sweet giveaways.
