Father vs. Son
updated: Oct 20, 2012, 2:00 PM
My son is in a moderately successful rock band. He has always been pretty talented, but his mother and
I pushed him a great deal to succeed. We have always purchased the best instruments for him, and
always been around to help haul equipment to his gigs.
I have been a songwriter all my life. Now that my son's band has had some success, I asked him to
perform one of my songs at his next concert. He said no! I am very hurt and angry and I am thinking of
not inviting him home for Thanksgiving. My wife says he is invited regardless, but she agrees that he
should perform my song.
What do you think?
Dear Song Man:
Speaking of Thanksgiving, have you noticed the number of families that are serving something other
than turkey for dinner? I'm thinking of trying Turducken this year, but I've heard mixed reviews.
