The Shape Of Jazz to Come by Ornette Coleman

Favorite concert experience

Once again, another impossible question. All concert experiences are different and memorable in their own way. I once saw Baroness play a small club show at a local venue in Des Moines, and that was special due to the energy of the band and crowd. Another memorable show was seeing Foo Fighters front row at Wrigley Field with my best friend. We camped out in the GA line for 8 hours in the steamy July heat, but that's part of what made it so special. The show that takes the cake, however, was my 3d and final time seeing Rush live. I went with my dad and brother. That show was emotional for me then, and even more so now. It was a memory I'll cherish forever.

Hobbies / Interests / Fun Facts / Campus Involvement

I once ran into Corey Taylor, frontman of legendary bands Slipknot and Stone Sour, at Adventureland in Des Moines. I was starstruck and could not form a coherent sentence, but he was one of the nicest and most genuine people I have met, let alone a famous musician.
