Day 1

of Clint's Most Influential Albums


I've been nominated by none other than award winning guitarist, mandolin enthusiast, recording engineer, producer and singer/songwriter, Marty Comeaux, to chuck out some of my early on album/group influences. My first 2 8-tracks were KC And The Sunshine Band; I still have them, but they weren't overly influential to where I went shortly thereafter. 1st up? I must split because they were equally influential for me along with all the rest from these cats in the '70s.

When I heard Detroit Rock City, I was ready to move to Detroit where the rock apparently was. At least that's what a 12 year old thought and I was living out in Cut N Shoot, TX. at the time; very isolated and George Jones just didn't interest me in the least. Love Gun and Plaster Caster had me exploring the concept of sexual suggestiveness, er, uh. In my mind, there was no other band on the planet at this time in my life, but Kiss............that is, until I discovered Van Halen....more on that later.
