Me at age 7. Look at that perfect technique! LOL!
Me today with my Fender electric violin! Rock on!
Welcome to my first MUSIC MONDAY blog! As many of you know, I’m a huge music fan as well as a musician. I listen to everything – and I play everything on my violin – from classical to rock to country to prog rock to punk rock. I’ve played, recorded, or toured with dozens of bands, including NO DOUBT, SPIRITUALIZED, ARTHUR LEE of LOVE, BIRD YORK, DILLON CAMPBELL, THE DILETTANTES, RANDOM AOK, BUCK MCCOY, EMMA BURGESS, LISTING SHIP, WAIT THINK FAST, BRIGHT BLUE GORILLA, and THE NOW PEOPLE.

I figured I’d start off each week with a fun music blog. These blogs may be super short, like a link to my favorite Duran Duran guilty pleasure song or something more substantial, like my musings on American Idol. LOL!
Today’s blog is about some of the music that was referenced in my YA novel GOOD ENOUGH (HarperCollins). This book was published in hardcover in 2008. The paperback edition is out this June 7, 2011! I plan to post several Music Monday blogs about the music featured in this novel as we near the paperback release date! The music ranges from Bach to The Sex Pistols, to give you an idea of the variety of music I love! For today’s blog, I’m going to focus on the classical pieces mentioned in this book…
