Today is my brother's birthday (aught!), Sunday is my dad's and next week is my sister's. Phew. March was a busy birthday month in our house.
This song so reminds me of growing up in the 'burbs and hearing Rush, Led Zeppelin etc.
My brother went to Howard University and lived off campus his last two years.
One day he was chilling in his apartment, playing an eclectic range of music. In between Led tracks a neighbor knocked on his front door. He asked my brother if everything was okay. My brother was puzzled until the guy said "I heard that music." ha
A couple years ago I was having lunch with a talent manager who is black and grew up in Beverly Hills. He told me once he was driving down the street blaring "Tom Sawyer". A car blaring rap pulled up and the driver of that car looked at the manager like he was nuts.
Sigh, music is music.
This song has one of the best drum parts ever. Neil Peart is up there with Jon Bonham.
Have great weekend.
