My kid had a hard time falling asleep tonight so I put on KLOS and climbed up into his bunk with him.
Took me back to the nights with headphones on when the holiest sound was a ringing guitar lick, and rock music made me feel like there was more to the world than 4 walls and Catholic school.
I spent hours when I should've been sleeping spinning Bowie, or the Sex Pistols. The Beatles, or Iggy or Styx, or ACDC or the Scorpions. There was something about hard, achy, painful rock that made the world clear to a foggy headed teenager.
And tonight when Lilo fell asleep to metal played softly, it was so very, very good.
