Born in 1958 in Germany I was one of the kids, which were unprotectedly exposed to rock and progressive rock music running in the local mainstream radio. And so it happened to me what happened to many of my generation: we became addicts! Addicted to rock … no doctor could heal that, no one even tried. So I had to live with my addictions and closed my room, isolated myself and heard 100 times the guitar solo of Ritchie Blackmore on Child in time, followed by 500 times "Speed King". Later that did not anymore satisfy me and I needed harder stuff. So I started to consume Emerson Lake and Palmer, Yes, Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent, Birth Control, Iron Maiden, Van Halen and many more. As said, there had been no cure … and I did not spend to much effort to get healed I have to admit … In principle nothing has changed as per today and luckily modern research has in the meanwhile found out that permanent consuming rock music is not as bad as initially thought, so beside ears no organs are damaged. Also it has been proven that Wacken festivals can be survived with a very high probability, so that it did not become necessary to get rock prohibited. Yes friends and this is why I am still playing guitar though being over 60 years now … If someone would have told me that 40 years ago, I would have thought that this person is totally mad. So never say never and warn your children. In case they permanently listen to rock music, it can happen that they want to play guitar or bass or drums or keyboards and other crzy things (maybe they are already singing …). So don´t leave them alone with that and buy them what they want. Give them my example: they will anyway get what they want :-)
