“For those about to rock, we salute you!”
You know how the story goes that women marry men that are just like their fathers? I can attest to that.
I found myself surrounded by instruments and the sounds that come along for my entire childhood. So much so that at an early age I got pretty good at my Mick Fleetwood intense drummer face while managing to hold a steady beat. Later on I met my husband (the guy playing for the crowd above) while he was touring both nationally and internationally and most of our dates unfolded in other cities and tour buses crossing the country out of pure necessity. Needless to say, I’ve spent some serious time getting crafty with rockstar-related gifts.
Hail to your personal rock god or goddess with these creativity-inspiring items that are fun for both beginning and experienced musicians.
