The Beatles got Rene interested in music. The first record he ever bought was a 7" 45RPM single - I Feel Fine/She's a Woman. The first LP record was "Beatlemania" - the Canadian version of "With the Beatles". And the first concert Rene went to was The Beatles at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto on August 17, 1966, just a few weeks before they quit touring for good.

Rene began piano lessons at age 5 and started to learn how to play guitar in his early teens. Today he plays several musical instruments and writes and records his own music.

Rene lives in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.

Hosted by Rene Young

Available On Demand
