I was having a conversation yesterday about a moment in *your* musical history that shaped where you are today. I was thinking back, and here's mine:

When I was quite young - perhaps 13 - in any case it was before my dad moved to Israel, I went with my dad and my sister over to his friend Debbie's house. Debbie has a son named Alex who is about a year younger than I am. Alex was more into rap, and I was just starting to stray from the rap / hip hop / whatever genre that was so popular at the time and tend more towards alternative.

For Christmas Alex had gotten a couple of cassette tapes - bands which at this point I hadn't heard of - but he thought I might like them and gave them to me. The weren't his kind of thing. Apparently whoever bought them (I think his dad) had asked someone at the store what teenagers listen to these days and came up with the following:

Ten by Pearl Jam
Core by Stone Temple Pilots

It was a sort of musical awakening for me. Here was something much different from the Snoop Dog my sister liked and the Coolio that everyone was singing along with. I was hooked.
