Something happened, though. Record Store Day got big. It became an event. Major labels and mega-successful bands—who were in on the “holiday” from the start—began to play a larger and larger part.

One of the very first songs I learned on guitar was Otis Redding’s ‘(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,’ taught to me by the same fella who taught me some of the first standard chords I have ever learned, some 25 to 26 years ago. Mr. Roy Ridenour, one of my dad’s buds, used to come over for dinner and pick his guitar with anything from bluegrass to blues to old soul and folk tunes.

I am angry all the time. It is not an anger that manifests itself in destruction of property, and I am not looking for a fight, but if you have a sense of right and wrong, and your head is pulled out, there is a lot to be angry about. If you think everything is ok, then to me you're ok with everything, from marriage inequality to people trying to vote down the Violence Against Women Act. You can't let these cowards get away with this stuff.
