1976. I was fifteen. I stole my dad’s car and drove it thirty miles to Columbus to see these guys play a campus shit-hole called the Sugar-Shack. I didn’t really know it then but it turned out to be my first “punk show.” Two weeks later the Sugar-Shack burned to the ground “under mysterious circumstances.” A month after that, I placed my first record reviews in the Columbus Free Press and Cowtown Times. Not sure why I thought about that. Time sure flies when you’re having fun.
