We’re a Band

A few weeks ago, I bought the DVD chronicling Audio Adrenaline’s farewell concert from Hawaii. I cried at the end, but that’s another post for another time. I showed the DVD to the kids and Aiden absolutely fell in love with the band. He told me he wants to go to one of their concerts. I haven’t had the heart to tell him that’s not a possibility since this was their final concert…ever.

Every day, he asks if he can watch the DVD. Whenever he gets to watch it, he performs with the band, as if he were on stage with them. So, the apple doesn’t fall that far from the tree. I remember many an afternoon pretending my friends and I were part of Bon Jovi, cranking out tunes like Livin’ on a Prayer, Wanted Dead or Alive, and You Give Love a Bad Name. Yes – my son is doomed.

I’ve been trying to catch some of his performance on video, but he tones it down when he knows I’m trying to record him. I still managed to catch some of it. Unfortunately, I had to record it in segments so the video hosting sites would accept it. One of the larger portions was too big for me to upload at this time. I’ll see what I can do to compress it and post the rest at a later date. For now, enjoy what you can of Aiden and Audio A performing We’re a Band

Yes – he’s still playing guitar. You almost expect him to kick over a speaker or trash his air guitar on the ground, don’t you?If you’re not familiar with the original song, here it is…

And yes, I think the ending’s pretty corny. But that’s OK. Aiden likes it.

i LOVE that kid. He is amazing!!! I can just see him in about 8 years with a black t-shirt and a chain hanging from his wallet. He’s a rock star deep inside.
