I was in my hometown recently to celebrate my brother’s birthday and the fact that my closest aunt was visiting from Phoenix. My dad and I went out to get salads and pizza and I started telling him how much I’ve always loved classic rock, because he would always listen to it while we were growing up.
He says, “Oh really? Prove it. Is 101.3 the Fox on your radio station favorites?” And BOOM it was. I can’t really explain why I love the Steve Miller Band or ZZ Top so much:
except for the fact that it’s just a group of guys, rocking out, loving the music they are playing. Bands nowadays (not all; since I do love me some Lumineers and Black Keys) are sometimes more into it for the fame.
When Billy Gibbons is whaling on a guitar on stage, you know that he is in it for that exact moment. Not the girls or the drugs or whatever. And that’s why I love it. It helps you connect to it in some way.
And it’s really good for jamming out to in your car or the gym. Instant badass booster. Thanks Dad!
