Interviewing my best friends mom because I couldn’t get ahold of my family in Guatemala so I decided to interview her. She’s technically my 2nd mom anyway:p
Me: What sort of music were you exposed to at home?
Kathy: Mainly Country and some Motown. Such as Dolly Parton.
Me: What music, if any, were you NOT allowed to listen to at home? Why?
Kathy: My mom let me be my own person, I listened to whatever the hell I wanted to.
I was never restricted from my music.
Me: Did you ever employ music to pass the time while working?
Kathy: Yeah, I did it makes you more motivated to do your work.
Me: What sort of music were you exposed to outside of the home? When and where did this exposure take place?
Kathy: Rock or dance music on the radio or going to like dances or bars at night.
Me: Did anyone or anything ever discourage you from listening to “your” kind of music?
Kathy: No I was able to listen to whatever I wanted to.
Me: What kind of radio stations did you listen to, if any?
Kathy: Rock N’ Roll or Hard Metal
Me: How often, if ever, did you go to live concerts? What were they like?
Kathy: I went to a lot of concerts, they were pretty awesome! I went to go see Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne 3 times, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, ZZ Top, Nazareth, Aerosmith, and RUSH.
Me: Did you ever learn to play an instrument or have any vocal training?
Kathy: Piano and Clarinet but I suck!
Me: Was music incorporated into your daily life? If so, how?
Kathy: Kinda but not really, I would mainly listen to music in the car or while cleaning.
Me: Was there a time in your life when music comforted you?
Kathy: Yeah, sometimes music can say things that you can’t say.
Me: What type of music did you dance to?
Kathy: Bar music kinda like MC hammer music, that makes the beat goes fast
or like the song you dropped the bomb on me.
Me: Have your listening preferences changed over the course of your life?
Kathy: No, I pretty much listen to the same stuff such as AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, Foreigner, Judas Priest, etc.
