If you’re going around in circles and not getting anywhere, maybe you should change your outlook on life? Do you want to be the best or a mindless machine? Where did we lose the free spirit of our youth?
You know the kind I am talking about, the one that didn’t need anyone to make them feel good. There was no need to be the best unless you wanted to. The kind that listened to groups like Motley Crue, AC/DC, Van Halen and had fun.
I remember the first time my mom saw the cover for’Poison’s LOOK WHAT THE CAT DRAGGED IN’… She honestly thought they were women with too much makeup on. I can still remember the shock on her face when I began to read the band members names off. 😂.
I have always resonated with the bands that felt like the concert is a party and they are nothing more than the host of the party. If you go to YouTube, you can see the ones that are really having fun. Tommy Lee doing a barrel roll with the drum set and being strapped in to where he keeps playing is fun to watch. Jon BonJovi flying over the crowd. David Lee Roth playing with Eddie Van Halen on stage, you can see that they are having fun.
So how did we go from ‘Twisted Sister’ to elevator music? When do we lose the ability to have fun?
