"When I was two years old, I used to listen to my parents' records.
They told me later I was listening to the Beatles "Hey Jude" album (the only Beatles record they had) more than the others.
After that, I stopped listening to music during years.
When I was ten, one day, I suddenly told my mother that I loved the Beatles (maybe my subconscious mind was responsible for this). So she told me they had a record and that I could listen to it.
And guess what: it was "Hey Jude"!
So I started to listen to it, again, and again, and again. This was a big revelation!
So, during a few years, I used all my money to buy Beatles records.
I remember I was really amazed when I first listened to "Abbey Road", "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver", my three first Beatles records, and still my favorites. Then, I got "Sgt Pepper", the White Album, "Let it be"...
Fumbling in my parents records, I found "Atom Heart Mother" and "Wish You Were Here", so I became a Pink Floyd fan too.
When I was twelve, a classmate borrowed me "Led Zeppelin II". First, I was a bit confused by this dark and violent music. Still, after a few listenings, I was trapped! So I started to buy Led Zeppelin records too.
A few months later, another classmate borrowed me Deep Purple's "In Rock" and "Made in Japan". I became a fan even quicker than for Led Zeppelin.
However, I wasn't interested by the musics I could hear on the radio (this was during the 80s).
In the same way, I discovered Janis Joplin, AC/DC and a few others. I began to read the music press, to get information about other great artists I could listen to.
That's the way I heard about, then listened to Jimi Hendrix, the Beach Boys, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Téléphone (a french rock band), the Who, the Sex Pistols, the Clash...
But there was something missing: I had to become a musician too!
Of course, I was already singing all the time, while I was listening to my records, especially Beatles ones, but this wasn't enough. And I wanted to create my songs.
So I started the guitar, on my own.
After a few months, I was able to play properly. I wrote my first songs, and recorded them on a small tape recorder.
Later, I bought myself an electric guitar, an amplifier and I took part in my first band. We were mainly playing covers, but we were doing some compositions too!
Since then, I've been successively member of a dozen different rock bands, I wrote about a hundred songs, and I did a lot of gigs.
Today, Caroll Macsana & Friends is my main musical project.
I look forward to meeting you on stage!!!
I HOPE TO SEE YOU VERY SOON!"
