David Kefon Aslanian

Onstage, Rock the Light guitarist David Kefon Aslanian embodies the spirit of a rock star. He shreds, he leads the crowd in various chants—“four on the floor” is a favorite, even when the band isn’t playing “Crank Appeal”—and Lord knows he wears a sleeveless T-shirt like no other can. For his Playlist, Aslanian steered away from the straightforward rock tracks one might expect, given the nature of Rock the Light, instead selecting these unexpected songs:

1. “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”
by Elton John and Kiki Dee (from Greatest Hits 1970-2002)

2. “Sir Psycho Sexy”
by Red Hot Chili Peppers (from Blood Sugar Sex Magik)

3. “Funk #49”
by James Gang (from Funk #49)

4. “Purple Rain”
by Stina Nordenstam (from People Are Strange)

5. “Seven Stones”
by Genesis (from Nursery Cryme)
