Marc Elliot Kalman
I started playing guitar when I was in 3rd grade. When I was in 4th grade I gave guitar lessons to my school teacher. I wasn’t very good but that’s ok, he wasn’t either. My earliest recollection of music was the church choir that consisted of guitar players and drums (which was pretty rare back then). Even the Priest played guitar with the choir.
In 9th grade I met my best friend who played guitar as well. We would sit and listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult and Neil Young till our ears bled. When we were old enough, we started playing our acoustic guitars at café’s and restaurants.
I have to say though my biggest influence is The Beatles. Although I was only 8 months old when they played Ed Sullivan, their music ruled the house my entire young life. Well, now I have the chance to let everyone else share the music I’ve always enjoyed. So, to all out there listening, please remember that “All you need is love”…Peace.
