A Real, True Guitar Hero
So already, much ado about Neil Young licensing "Rockin' In The Free World" for a video game.
But we're bound for moving on since we've been through that a hundred times or more.
Which brings us to our post here on a real, true rock hero.
We've been reading the Washington Post newspaper for literally decades. And this morning a story really jumped out at us that said, this is what guitar heroes are all about. A top of the fold weekend Style section story written by a 14 year old in one of the world's leading establishment mainstream media publications.
The elite professional music critics disdain this type of writing as a "fan-gasm". And we say to them, throw your hatred down.
A must read for any kid who wants to be a guitar hero someday: Guitar Hero: When Heartbreaker Mike Campbell met a young fan, he didn't just string him along by Griffin Black.
After reading article, watch the accompanying video. It is truly an AMAZING dream come true story, once in a lifetime story they we can all dream about. It's just true.
ps - and please spare us the cynicism.
