My Classic-Rock Kid...Revisited

I walked into my sons' bedroom to say good night just now. My oldest, who listens to his classic rock station while falling asleep, drew my attention to the song on the radio: "Girl, You Really Got Me Now."

He asked, ''Is that the newer version [by Van Halen] or the original one KINKIES?"

Um, honey, that is just slightly off....but you certainly made me smile with it.

Yeah, the new version, from like, 1978. Classic, alright.

BTW I've been practicing on my guitar in my little "dungeon" at home for a gig at a party where I'll be playing a bunch of classic rock songs (not shlock, just rock), and my daughter, Iguana (10) came down and asked if she could play keyboard with me. Normally I would find it very distracting to have some kid playing random stuff on a yamaha while I try to get the chords down, but to my surprised she managed to keep up nicely with me and even figured out a bunch of chords on her own.

PT: Nice to know that you and your daughter can make beautiful music together.
