A few weeks before my 15th birthday I was sitting in the back of my parents car, on our way to visit my grandparents. In my Sony Discman was Larry Mitchell’s debut cd. I couldn’t stop listening to it! During that car ride, I took off my headphones and said, “Mom, I want a guitar for my birthday.”
On the afternoon of my birthday, my mom took me to Mekeel’s Music Shop in Newburgh, NY where I purchased my first six-string.
Without Larry’s influence, I may have never picked up a guitar!
