Why 21-Year-Olds Love Classic Rock Too

Alex is 21 and loves Classic Rock on 98.5 KFOX because he loves guitar, and loves great songs. His favorite band is Motley Crue.  Today he got a guitar lesson from me in our on-air studio, and played “Fly By Night” by Rush for me on my guitar. The guitar you see is one of the guitars I use to play my “Mystery Riff” feature weekday mornings at 7:00am.

When he handed my guitar back to me, I played a Mystery Riff for him to solve.  Right away, he correctly guessed that I played “Ramble On” by Led Zeppelin. Alex goes to a lot of Classic Rock concerts with the money he makes working at California’s Great America.

I guess the question isn’t so much, “Why would a 21-year-old love Classic Rock as much as his parents do?” but rather, “Why wouldn’t a 21-year-old love Classic Rock as much as his parents do?”

After all, my son Tyler loves The Who’s “Baba O’Riley,”  and he’s about Alex’s age.  Rock on, Alex!
