12 year old rockstars

Date December 7, 2008

I love music, especially the live kind.  So, when two fifth graders that are in a rock band asked me to come see them play, I couldn’t say no.

The truth is, those kids brought the house down and when they played “Smells Like Teen Spirit” I nearly lost it.  They were hysterical and fanflippin’tastic, I tell ya.

When the show was over the drummer and I had a chat about rock n roll.  We talked about our favorite U2 albums and Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.  We discussed The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and the fact that in another life I would have married Jim Morrison.

And then I asked him why he wanted to be a rockstar.

“That’s easy,” he said, “I wanna rock out for the lights and the smoke and the women, Mees.”

    You’re never too young to rock. And you’re never too old to marry a dead rock star.
