Because You’re a Good Parent, You’ll Want to Buy This Punk Rock Book for Your Kid
I don’t have kids but if I did, I’d spend an awful lot of time teaching them about music. Why are the Beatles so important? Here’s why you need to understand hte R&B of the 50s and 60s. Listen to the way Jimmy page produced John Bonham’s drum sound. Kurt’s still dead, but he’s still a big deal. And so forth.
I’d also spend a lot of time inculcating the kid(s) about the glories of punk music. This can be a dicey proposition–not all punk is suitable for young skulls full of delicate mush–but at least there’s now a book on the subject.
The book is wonderfully illustrated by Play-Doh sculptures that make learning fun. See?
