Jon Richman part 2

I ask if his parents listen to his music.

"They like it. I invite them to see my shows. My father bought me my my first guitar, my first electric guitar, my second electric guitar, and my first two amplifiers. He encouraged it. I told him, 'Hey, Dad, I'm playing this big old place'-- I was about 16 years old-- 'and these people might come to see me-- maybe even from record companies-- and I need a better guitar. He gave me $110 for an Epiphone solid body guitar. If I had it today it'd be worth about $500."
