I ask because I just got this message on whatsapp from dad, and it made me realise how thankful I am that he despises The Eagles and Phil Collins.
Gave me a great musical education, ensured I was fully up to speed with the classics by the time I was 14/15, and introduced me to bands I may not have discovered without him- Blonde Redhead, Steely Dan, Cocteau Twins, DM Stith, The Handsome Family, Laura Veirs, The The, I could go on. Absolute GBOL.
Mum would be pretty cool if she had any time to explore music and film and books, but she doesn’t. Loves Kate Bush though and that’s good enough for me.
How cool are YOUR parents?
