My Record Collection:
Alan Day

From a Saturday job selling records to Radiohead band members to putting the prog into Sonisphere festival, this Oxford don likes his music both epic and loud.

"My parents weren’t really into music. By the age of 11 I’d amassed more tape copies of albums than they had in their whole collection. I was into pop, I taped all the charts, then the first vinyl I got was Def Leppard’s Hysteria, and [Guns N’Roses’] Appetite For Destruction changed my life. I got into hair metal, Metallica, Maiden, and I used to listen to The Friday Night Rock Show.
