I love iTunes as much as anybody. It's very convenient and very easy. But there is nothing like the vibe that you get when you walk into a record store. And I think a lot of people are still thrilled to spend a half hour there and go through the bins and make some purchases.
I worked in Licorice Pizza when John Lennon was killed. I had the day off, but I came in anyway because people needed a place to mourn.
Whenever I go to a new city, whether visiting or vacationing, I would always make that a point to get to the record store early on, just to get my bearings and see what was going on around town.
It's a great meeting place, community center, art gallery, singles bar, music venue. The record store really covers a lot of ground.
The first purchase I made with my own money was a single by The Kinks, "All Day and All of the Night" and still one of my all time favorites.
