Night was dark but the sky was blue
I used to get annoyed when people made fun of classic rock and classic rock fans. “Dinosaur rock” or “dad rock” was a putdown of something I generally like, and all you kids with your indie rock and hippety hop can step right over here and bite me. The stars of the classic rock era—the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, the Doors, the Eagles, David Bowie, Bob Seger, the Cars, Boston, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, name another one here—are too significant to the history of 20th century popular music to be dismissed with an epithet and a sneer, I thought.
* The world broke today. Again. So, be nice to each other. Be patient. Try to open your mind a little to the other person. Reach out, if you can. We're all we got. And tomorrow is Monday.
* Who do you love? (Mr. Bo Diddley.)
