Story of How the Addiction Began:

When I was younger, When asked the question, "What Do You listen to," I usually said, "whatever's playing." For the most part I liked whatever was playing. I guess I was waiting for a prophet to show me the musical way. Although I didn't listen to much music on my own, when I was younger, I did listen to the Rocky Movies over and over again. I knew all the dialogue and the music for the 5 movies, and This obsession with Rocky lead to me buying my first cd, Rocky 4, at the 30th Street Train Station, in Philadelphia. However, I didn't really know that this thing called film scores existed, until I met a guy, (the prophet), who was obssesed with the Conan as much as I was with Rocky. He just happened to own 3 film scores: Conan the Barbarian, Conan the Destroyer, and Braveheart. After borrowing his Conan soundtrack, I was hooked. Later on I went to and brought my fist two film scores, Conan the Barbarain and Alexander Nevsky. I also picked up a copy of the Rocky 1 soundtrack at Circuit City. Shortly after this I discovered EBAY, Filmtracks, and the hidden world of film music. I found out who Basil Poledouris and James Horner were and thus my film score addiction had begun...
