My Girls Get Whiplash

At some point, about 25 years ago, I became enamored with speedmetal, thanks to a kid who sat next to me in Algebra II. I'm making sure my kids don't wait that long.

Actually, it's "Hit the Lights". Same album, though.

Imagine how different discovering music will be for kids today. They won't have to rely on the radio or record stores. The Internet is a buffet of music there for the sampling.

HA! That's the coolest thing ever. What's your secret? I've been playing this stuff for years and I still can't get my kids to enjoy the metal as much as mom and pop.

Dawn - thanks. They carry on their lives like it were one long musical. Which is cool.

replicant - it truly is. Mine have already been exposed to much more than I was at their age.

Randal - I'm not really sure. They've just always loved all kinds of music.

Turning kids onto your music is tough. I don't know why, but my daughter loved the music I listened to. Me, I could not stand the music my parents listened to. Yet now, I find their influence was profound after all. I am listening to more classical and jazz than I ever did as a youngster.

I'd watch the video, but this old machine I am using now will start smoking and shaking and then seize up like a tranny with no fluid.

I think you're right, at least for my generation. I never really turned on to my parents' music, but I also don't remember it playing the prominent part in our household as a child that music does in mine right now. So they're getting exposure to all forms of music. I think the most requested artists off my iPod are Social Distortion and Mozart.
