My summer Spotify playlist

Not bad for a granddad.

I can’t imagine my life without music. Some of my fondest childhood memories took place in Paul Allen’s basement, where he’d turn on the record player and turn me on to artists like Jimi Hendrix and albums like Are You Experienced? And like a lot of people, when I got older, I discovered the joys of listening to a great song while going for a drive. These days, I love learning about new songs and artists through recommendations from my kids, who have great ears, and friends like Bono (whose ear isn’t too shabby, either).

This Spotify playlist includes many of my favorites—songs newer and older that have stuck with me over the years. Whether you're hosting a backyard BBQ, sitting on the beach, or just driving around with the windows down, feel free to make it part of the soundtrack to your summer, too.  

Happy listening!
