My Parents were born in the early 50's. It was mostly me who had to learn to like rock haha. I was a little kid being brought to see all the local classic rock bands in crappy bars. They were big fans of Bruce Springsteen (being from NJ) the Eagles, the Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, not a fan of most 80's music though. It really took me finding music I liked in the 90's to appreciate their musical tastes. Then my parents also got into the alternative and grunge stuff. My dad always had a couple guitars laying around hoping his sons would pick it up I suppose. I picked up guitar maybe 3 times before it really stuck when I was 14 or 15. Heck, they even supported me playing the half-stack recto at home! Anyway, now that I have my own kids, I am grateful to be able to share some music, and lots of instruments with them. my 10 year old has recently gotten into drums, and oddly enough loves music scores from movies the most. So its been fun to learn with him and GAS over some eDrum gear too!
