Young Rocker With Dad – Single Image Sundays

17 Jun


My dad took me to my first concert, Johnny Cash at the ’82 World’s Fair, when I was a boy. We sat way up high near the top of a stadium in Knoxville, Tennessee, and I still remember the shine from Cash’s sequined jacket (black, of course).

This photo is one I took this week in that tradition: a dad hoists up his boy to watch Weezer recently in Las Vegas – note the youngster getting in on the fun by giving the “W” hand gesture. It was a great show, and especially cool to see a parent educating his kid in the ways of rocking. Nice Father’s Day image, right there.

What was your first concert? Did a parent take you? Have you taken one of your brood to a rock show? Let us hear from you in the comments!

      I totally agree. And you know what else? Right next to us was a Generation X guy about my age, along with his dad, probably in his 60s, and they were both singing along to the band with the crowd, just the same. So at that gig, there were literally three generations of fans all rocking out to the same music. Pretty awesome if you ask me. I like your story, too, and am glad you came by to comment – thanks!

        What a wonderful day you had! 🙂 I’d have loved to have seen that. 🙂 Again, I’m so happy you liked my letter to Daddy. 🙂 Warms my heart, right along with your story. 🙂
