ME: What was the first thing (band/song/moment) that got you into music-- like, really into music?
KL: The Beatles and The Beach Boys are my earliest music memories. Actually, I still have a Shirley Temple record that was the one record I would beg my dad to play for me. “The Good Ship Lollipop” was my song!
ME: Seeing as you are one of the biggest Beatles fans currently working here, I think this is a really important question for you: Who is your favorite Beatle and why?
KL: George. I wept the day he died. I think I always identified with him. John was wonderful, but in a more outspoken way, whereas George was always thoughtful and understated. He lived his live quietly and peacefully. I once cut a quote out of a magazine where George tells what he said to the intruder who stabbed him at home: “I just shouted 'Hare krishna, hare krishna!'” Oh, George.
ME: Yeah he really was the Dark Horse. Which Beatles track is your favorite?
KL: Well, there is a different answer every day, but “For You Blue” on Let It Be is one of my favorite George tracks. “Cry Baby Cry” on the White Album. “I’m Only Sleeping” on Revolver-- I dig the backwards guitar.
