Hank M. from our ZCLT team has been on the phones since July of 2011. Hank is somebody that is always eager to talk about music and personifies rock n’ roll like nobody else at Zappos. To learn more about Hank and his love for music I asked him some music-related questions:
What are your top five albums of all time and why?
H: Faded Grey "A Quiet Time for Desperation"- Local Las Vegas Legends, this record represents a specific period of my life that I will always look back on with fondness.
Turbonegro "Apocalypse Dudes"- I believe this to be one of the greatest rock and roll records of my generation. Also, one of the tightest live bands I've ever seen.
Minor Threat "Discography"- A record I picked up in high school, and to this day it's still fierce and intense as I remember it.
The Murder City Devils "Empty Bottles, Broken Hearts"- When they were touring on this record I drove 8 hours to Salt lake City to see them.
The Observers- "So What's Left Now"- A few years ago I tried to set up a show with these dudes with the help of a friend. Due to a breakdown in communication I got the dates wrong and dudes showed up to my house and me saying "Sorry, I screwed up. I don't have a show for you". Luckily, they were bunch of sweet guys and we just ended up walking down the strip. I still have a friendly acquaintance with some of the members to this day.
What new artist(s) are you currently excited about?
H: The Wax Idols- I've been playing their "No Future" LP non stop!
What is your favorite venue to see shows at in Las Vegas and who are your favorite local artists?
H: I really like the set up at the Artifice. Also, Yayo Tacos is pretty rad! Favorite local bands: Candy Warpop, Pigasus, The Dirty Somethings.
What was the last song/artist you listened to(be honest)?
H: Jay Reatard –“I Know a Place”
How has music impacted your relationship with employees at Zappos?
H: It's been a great way to find common ground and build new relationships.
