I agree with Menzingers comment. I'll never forget being dragged along to a concert with my parents when I was about 12. There was a band playing they wanted to see. Big deal. I didn't want to go to this elderly concert! Ya, my parents were products of the 60s and 70s and I grew up on a lot of the music, but I didn't recognize the name of the band they got tickets for. I knew I wouldn't like the music - even though I liked most of the other 60's & 70's music. Plus it was gonna be in a small theatre, huh?! We have to remain seated!! No way!! I remember going..I remember liking it right away. But what I remember most in that small theatre is when the drummer started doing his solo, it blew right through my body and lit the light. The band Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Carl Palmer opened the door. That is what happens when a person actually listens to more than 20 seconds of a song and gives musicians a chance to be creative.
