Ever since I was 12 years old, when my fascination and obsession with music started, I would get on my skateboard and ride down to the local record store. I’d find the most tattooed guy there and have him recommend me a new album once a week. Then I’d learn it and play it on my drums. With internet and technology, there are some great platforms of discovering music, but I would hate for kids to be deprived of the incredible experience of discovering music through their local record stores. Lets keep record stores alive and well, please.
