I was chatting with some friends last night about music for a moment – she’s an academic in sociology/education; he’s a former-rocker now rabbi. He’s also a record collector extraordinaire. One wall of their condo is dedicated to a specially made built-in that contains more records than I’ve ever personally seen outside of a music store. So it’s perhaps unsurprising that they have a cool kid.
She was telling me that they were visiting a current rocker-friend a few weeks back and the guy asked her 10 year old son for the name of a band he liked. His answer? Uriah Heep. Now, I personally, pushing forty, know all of about four band names you can say that make you sound cool to basically anybody, and I know that’s one of them. When I was ten I could have named exactly zero. I bet this kid could create a whole list.
I need to hang out with them more often.
Thanks for reading.
