Kids Today

I got a ride home from a younger person. He put on a CD of some band I never heard of, but the second song was a cover of John Lennon's "Cold Turkey". When I said "good job on the cover", he insisted it was "original". I finally convinced him that John Lennon wrote the song, but then he asked me "who is this John Lennon, and did he write anything else?".
I felt old.

That is too bad. Many people just don't have a sense of history and roots. It is hard for me to imagine music with out John Lennon and the Beatles.

Who is John Lennon?

I am weeping.

And I am old; happily so at that!
