Last night watching the second episode of the 2012 American Idol season, I reminded our Son that Steven Tyler is a true rock star. He asked me what band he’s with, to which I replied, Aerosmith. They headlined the first concert I ever attended (1975). Chapin said, “I remember you telling me that”.
Without thinking, I told him that the measure of true greatness is the ability to do it for a long time. Legendary not on what might have been, but on what they actually did.
