    I Don’t Know About The Freak Part…

    …at least not for appreciating music older than myself. I grew up listing to the oldies station, and moved on to country from there. I started listening to alternative around the time that the Red Hot Chili Peppers came out with Under the Bridge. I did not appreciate the Oldies...

    My Mom Had This Friend

    This male friend of hers took huge offense to people that listened to music before they were born. So since I love the Beatles he would make snide comments all the time that they were around before I was born so I could not be  a fan and if he saw anyone young wearing t-shirts...

    I Really Get Made Fun Of.

    My own mom makes fun of my music choices.  She got my ipod out and said, "B, have you been listening to the Delilah show or something?? Eww."  If a song is more than two months old, my sister will say, "That's like, really old."  So, my family picks on me alot...

    I love the "Hair" bands whose popularity was waning by the time I was born in 1989. My fave is Motley Crue.

    Freaks No More

    So most stories seem to point to their family for their love of music; I'm not really sure if that's true for me. Sure mum taught me that Blondie is the most beautiful woman on Earth and there will never be another Stevie Nicks, but I tend to think I'm just a product of my...

    Classic Rock? Oh Yeah!

    I'm 19 and in college, yet Classic Rock is my all time favorite music genre ever. Some people find that weird. Oh well, let them think what they want to think. I grew up around 70s and 80s music and never had an issue singing to it in the car with my parents as I was growing up...
