Wind of Change

Peter Frampton was perhaps the first non-mainstream artist I listened to, way back in 1978.
I was 11 years old, and the sound was entirely foreign to me. I'm sure the sound pushed me toward the guitar, and as a result, another world entirely.

Sapphires aren't enough to buy me happiness
Diamonds don't demand me, they're just for looking
Love comes close to wrecking all you have to give
God knows, there's so much to give

I used to be embarrassed the first album I brought with my own money was the Beach Boys Greatest Hits - now, not so much.
