Alice Cooper - Killer (1971): Alice Cooper's Killer is one of my favourite records of all time. Every song is good, like 'Under My Wheels' and 'Yeah Yeah Yeah'. The album makes me think of hanging out with Mimi and dancing. I think the first time I heard Killer, Mimi was playing it at our old house. I've been obsessed with Alice Cooper ever since then.


Captain Beefheart - Unconditionally Quaranteed (1974): I recently bought Captain Beefheart's Unconditionally Quaranteed in Pittsburgh and I really love the song 'New Electric Ride' and 'Lazy Music' is really good. It always makes me think of listening to it on the 4th of July. Underrated Beefheart record.

Mothers of Invention - Uncle Meat (1969): I chose the last real Mothers of Invention's album Uncle Meat which is the best Mothers record by far. It's what really got me into Mothers and it was a huge inspiration for the second, unreleased Savoy Motel album. Uncle Meat has amazing production, crazy editing. It's total insanity, masterpiece of a record.


Van Der Graaf Generator - The Least We Can Do is To Wave at Each Other (1970): My former roommate James Cathcart made a short film with a title 'The Least We Can Do Is To Wave At Each Other' but he refuses to finish it or show it to anyone and it's a major point of contention to anybody who helped him with the film. Van Der Graaf Generator are the best UK prog band, they're better than King Crimson. Peter Hamill's probably the greatest singer of all time. I once walked into a shop in Milwaukee and I saw a Van Der Graaf Generator poster on their wall and I said something about it to the owner and he was like "Peter Hamill is to the voice what Hendrix is to the guitar" and that pretty much says it all.

Michael Nesmith & The First National Band - Loose Salute (1970): As another record I chose Michael Nesmith & The First National Band's Loose Salute. Mike Nesmith was originally in the Monkees and with The First National Band they made three records in about a year-and-a-half and this is the second one. It's my favourite of the three and Red Rhodes who plays the pedal steel on the album made the pick ups that I use in my own guitar.


Electric Light Orchestra - On The Third Day (1973): It's the first ELO record without Roy Wood and I've listened to it a couple of times. Honestly I don't know it that well but it's a nice German copy because you can't find it back home in Nashville.

Peter Tosh - Legalize It (1976): Legalize it, don't criticise it.


Van Morrison - Astral Weeks (1968): I think Van Morrison's Astral Weeks is a perfect record. You can have breakfast listening to it, you can smoke a joint listening to it, you can have sex to it, you can sleep to it. It's just beautiful.
