What initially attracted you to playing music?

My two dreams were to either be in the Beatles or pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals. I listened to country music -- particularly Ray Price and Jim Reeves -- when I was a little kid, because my folks did. But when my brother and I saw the Beatles on 'Ed Sullivan,' I was nine years old and that was the end of it right there -- I was either going to be in a band or I'd jump off a building.
