I started publishing the Dr. Music website in January of 2003 as a way to keep myself current in the world of music, but also as a way to prevent my brain from turning into mashed peas.
You see, I found myself as a stay-at-home parent in February 2001, taking in heavy doses of The Wiggles and Barney tunes. Believe me, I have nothing against The Wiggles (love them actually), but I needed my rock and roll.
I have been a student of music my whole life; constantly finding new things to listen to and researching the history of it all. My older brothers took me to my first concert when I was 8 years old, and I haven't stopped since. I saw Pink Floyd's Animals tour, the classic KISS lineup in '77, Kansas, ELP, and on and on and on. I didn't stop listening to everything I could get my hands on throughout my teen years and beyond, and I never stopped craving the live concert experience. Many hundreds of concerts have been seen, and thousands of records purchased.
Once I became a stay-at-home parent, I decided to pursue my dream of being a journalist. Reading magazines like Circus and Hit Parader constantly, I always wanted to be a part of the music world and write about what I heard, and to talk with the musicians that were changing and enhancing my life. What you are logged in to right now is the result of that pursuit of a dream.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
