T-Bone Hosts T-Bone's Prime Cuts each Saturday afternoon from 1-3pm EST

Where do you live- 
Just Northeast of Indianapolis, IN

Earliest musical memory-
I wasn't allowed to listen to "rock" music as a child...but I vividly remember being in 7th grade and all of my friends talking about KISS. I hadn't heard them, but I knew all of their names!

The first album you bought- 
Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band - The Distance

First concert- 
Billy Joel - April 4, 1984 - Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
My girlfriend at the time had bought tickets for her and her previous boyfriend before we had met. I told her I didn't want to go as I wasn't a fan. She asked if it would be okay if she went with her previous boyfriend... I WENT! lol Became a Billy Joel fan that night and I still am.

Last concert attended- 
Hall & Oates - May 28, 2013 - Palace Theatre in Louisville, KY.
I was working for the band by this time (worked for them from 2008-18) but this was the first and only time seeing them live. I had been to a handful of John Oates shows, even attending his Songwriters Festival in Aspen, CO. (Where I was lucky to spend some alone time with Allen Toussaint!) Great show and I got to take some friends backstage, so it was fun!

You just got off of a plane & are standing in your dream location, where are you?
Scotland. I'm part Scottish and would love to visit someday.

Favorite memory-
Probably how happy I was to talk to one of my heroes on the phone - Robin Trower - and interview him in the early days of T-Bone's Prime Cuts. (May of 2011)

Bucket list goal-
To be happy.

Finish this sentence- "This time next year______"
I'll be walking and driving! (Had brain surgery and two strokes in 2018.)

You're hosting a dinner with 3 living artists & 3 that have died. Who will be there?
Living -
1. Steve Cropper (Stax, Booker T & the MGs, Otis Redding, etc.) I already know him and worked for him from 2008-18, but he has the BEST stories!
2. Tony Iommi
3. Frankie Miller

Died -
1. Ronnie James Dio
2. B.B. King
3. Donny Hathaway
