Seattle People Q&A: Malcolm Digs The Who, the '70s, Can Remember His First Concert, But Not His Last"/>
Every week, photographer and conversationalist Jenny Jimenez ventures out into the city and brings back photos and notes about the folks she encounters. This week, she ran into Malcolm Sinclair downtown.
All questions by Jenny Jimenez:
What kind of music are you listening to these days?
I've been listening to a variety of things lately, with a lot of old '70s stuff sprinkled in. Ray LaMontagne seems to come up on the iPod a lot lately. As for '70s stuff, it's anything from Aretha Franklin to Gladys Knight and the Pips. The Eagles.
Were you actually listening to any of those in the '70's?
No, I was pretty young, so it was mainly the radio or probably anything coming out of my brother's Chevelle. He used to drive around and I was always in the backseat, subjected to whatever he wanted to listen to.
Do you have any favorite albums from that time?
Anything from The Who. My brother was really into The Who. I actually listen to a lot of that now. It's on my iPod at work, and I think everyone is probably sick of my '70s bent right now.
What were you listening to in high school?In my car it was pretty much nothing but David Bowie. Other than that, anything that was on KJET and KYYX. They were Seattle stations, mostly all new wave. That would've been '82, '83, '84.
Did you have a Chevelle, too?
No I had a Ford Pinto. A little runabout. No hot rod for me, unfortunately. My brother had the hot cars.
Have you seen any shows lately?
You know, I haven't seen a show in a long time. Don't remember. Isn't that sad?
Do you remember the first show you went to?
It was The Police. No, it was Rush. Rush 2112. We were all of 14 and bumming cigarettes from people. Then the Police, both at the Coliseum. Then the B-52's at the Arena. Then Duran Duran at the Eagle Hippodrome. Once my mother said "You can go to a concert" it was, like, one right after the other.
