How long have you been a DMB fan?: I've been a fan since the first time I saw "What Would You Say" on MTV in 1994, but I didn't see DMB live until 1998, and I didn't become a hardcore fan until I went to college later that year and discovered the online community and unreleased live recordings.

What is your favorite DMB song?: Granny is up there. It's the song I most associate with becoming a big DMB fan. The first time I heard it on a tape (literally, a cassette), I couldn't believe a song that good wasn't on an album. Finding more songs just like that became my favorite part of tape trading.

How many concerts have you attended?: Sixty-two and counting!

What does the music mean to you?: It's a positive force presented in a unique but timeless way that appeals to people of all ages and has lasted despite tremendous changes in the industry. It's a constant when very few things are.

Any special moments you would like to share?: December 21, 2002. Madison Square Garden. DMB is jamming out "Too Much" with Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. I'm standing at my seat. My friend is in the concourse getting a drink. Dave steps to the microphone and says "Ladies and gentlemen, the Godfather of Soul, James Brown!" My friend re-enters the arena and looks up at me with this look of shock on his face as he rushes back to the seat. Strangers start high-fiving each other. Confetti falls from the ceiling. Nothing will ever beat that and I'm so glad I was there.
