I was thirteen years old when I purchased my first album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I bought the cassette tape first and later found the album in a record store and purchased it. The Monkees, on the other hand, were the first live band that I saw in concert. It was in Oklahoma City on June 29, 1996, during their 30th anniversary tour. My husband had purchased our tickets as a birthday present for me. We were at the front of the stage when Davy Jones tossed me a red rose that he had picked up from the stage floor. I still have the rose petals pressed in a book, along with his autograph.
