What was the cause for your passion for the guitar, what made you HAVE to get one and play it?

my dad tried to teach me guitar when I was around four or five but I wanted no part of flamenco lessons, I wanted to play like the Beatles so I stopped shortly after.

But then when I was around nineteen I heard Eruption and the rest of the first Van Halen debut and that was all she took!

What was your WOW moment when you had to play?
