The kids and I were listening to “Houses of the Holy” this morning before school – mostly because I needed some solid rock to get me to the weekend – and G and I had the following conversation:
Me: What kind of music is this, G?
G: Rock and roll, Daddy.
Me: Do you know that this band is called “Led Zeppelin?”
Me: That’s just what they call it. When you have a band, you can name it anything you want. When you have a band, what will you call it?
G: Hmm(thinks about it for a while). I’ll call it “Shortie Short.”
Me: And what would the name of your CD be?
Later, we were walking back from dropping off M (my 6 year old son) at school, and I asked G about his band again.
G: Daddy, in my band, I’ll be named “Short.” And you can be named “Flat.”
Look for Shortie Short’s first album, “Clown,” featuring Flat, on Daddy Records. Coming soon.
