We Shook, Rattled, and Rolled at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

#DadChat Rocked and Rolled Thursday, June 7 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m., PT. Everyone shared their your favorite desert island song (YouTube links) and all-time favorite R&R album. Was it be a Beatles album or song? The Doors, Led Zepellin, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Lady Gaga, The Stones, Elvis Presley, Madonna, or The Jackson Five? Was it be metal, punk, pop, traditional, or grunge?  Jason Ramsey was our co-host and you can read the transcript and see exactly how much fun you missed!

How does Rock ‘N’ Roll influence your family? Do your kids buy records? Oh yeah, what is a record? Do you/they like the same performers? Let’s share how music, especially rock ‘n’ roll, has impacted our parenting. I know going to concerts was a huge part of parenting my boys and now my oldest is off to The Berklee College of Music to pursue a career in music, hopefully. At 16, he talked his ways on stage at The Roxy, and played note-for-note with his idol, Chris Cornell, in an acoustic benefit concert. See it below:

    Don’t know how I can contribute but I’ll be there! Love music. Can’t live without it. My kids and I listen to a lot of the same stuff. When they want to annoy me in the car they’ll turn on a classical station. It’s funny. They don’t know how much I like it! One son loves Rap. I listen just to get inside his head to try to understand him better.

    Bruce,

    The Mommy Man and I had a great conversation about music yesterday while eating lunch. I was surprised to hear that he likes country music. I have always loved all kinds of music. So does my husband. It’s great to see that this is a passion we’ve passed down to our children. We’re not a musically gifted family (like yours), but we sure like to dance. 🙂

    it was such a pleasure

      The feeling is quite mutual. Not only were you a GREAT co-host, but I so appreciate your work in the face of the tech problem we faced. I don’t know why that happens, but you did a yeoman’s job of “fixing” it which made the following hour of #DadChat all the more sweet!
