When I first really started focusing on rock and roll was in Pickering, Brock Road. I remember – I dunno how old I was, maybe ten or somethin’ – listenin’ to these fuckin’ records. When my parents would leave, I’d turn the records up real loud and dance. Go nuts. Like I was the coolest dancer in the world. I would always have this imaginary dance contest where I won – but I was all by myself, singin’ along to records. Kinda made my own videos.
