Respect the Classics, man

July 7, 2015. Hangin’ with Joshua, seeing Van Halen at the Amp. I’ve always felt it important to bestow upon your offspring the required respect and reverence for the classics… Beethoven, Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart… ok, who am I kidding, I really mean AC/DC, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, KISS, Queen, Journey, and more, including Van Halen. Fun fact: Van Halen 1980 was the first major rock concert I attended. In a really strange coinkydink, it coincided with a day I was sick from school, but we won’t go into all that detail. 🙂

Anyway, I wanted to make sure my kids didn’t suffer through the void of great music over the last 20 years, so from an early age (like 2!), they have been immersed in the good stuff. Growing up with a solid appreciation of rock tunes and great (tho somewhat – ok, quite a bit – edited) stories of concerts past.

So when the opportunity presents itself to share firsthand what you’ve fed them growing up, you know you have to prove your metal, er, mettle (pun intended). 🙂
