I remember the first time I went to the record store to buy my own record with my own money. It was BTO's "Not Fragile". My little sister (I think she was eight) came with me and purchased this:
Our parents made her take it back.
I later accumulated my own rather large collection of George Carlin albums, most of which I still have. And then I got to see him live at Massey Hall in Toronto - an experience I treasure, especially today.
I took a quick peek over at YouTube to find a clip to add to the growing tribute, and ran across this one from 1996. It seemed appropriate.
