Parental rock n' roll pride
My kids' school does this thing twice a year called Coffee House. It's an evening of music and entertainment and any student can sign up and perform.
Aidan has participated in this several times, and Cole has joined in for 2013. I wanted to share a video clip of one of Cole's performances in a band called The Tickle Bros.
They do a cover of Weezer's Say It Ain't So and they pretty much rock the thing out. But what is so crazy is that I didn't know Cole could play drums. He's got a bass and a guitar, but there is no drum set in our basement. And I guess my main question is: when did he learn to go all Dave Grohl?
I seriously got tears in my eyes watching him up there.
Even Aidan said she had no idea her little brother could do this.
At 1:35 he kicks it into high gear.
The kid plays big. That's all I'm saying.
And at 4:05, he adds a nice little rock 'n roll, devil may care touch.
Plus, the other kids he's playing with are super cool kids.
I'm not sure how many of you out there watched Dave Grohl's keynote address at the South by Southwest Conference. I was glued to it and couldn't help but think, all young aspiring musicians should watch his talk.
You never know when the next Dave Grohl is living right under your roof.
