The most I ever paid for a show was Maryland Deathfest a few years back. $50 for a single day, but damn, what a line-up: Electric Wizard, Cough, Yob, Saint Vitus, plus a dozen more

50 years ago today Black Sabbath released Black Sabbath.

Not that I noticed as an 8 year old, but it changed my life! \m/ \m/

That was the official start of heavy metal, right there
I'd have to concur. Hard to believe 50 years, though. OTOH, I've known Mike Dean since about 1985, so there is that perspective. I'm just farking old!!! But the grass is still on the right side of my boots.

My kid's birthday today and she's a massive Sabbath fan. Ozzy too obviously.

Gotta teach them well.

Good kid. Mine is not into music at all. One thing i hope I never forget is the day I was driving somewhere with her when still in a car seat, Motörhead’s Inferno playing and I see her in the rear view mirror head banging.

She stood up in front of the whole school and sang Bohemian Rhapsody then rolled into War Pigs. The dropped jaws were hilarious as she was only 12 at the time.

My 9 year old kid is into two types of music: classical and white noise on the Amazon echo. I teased her the other night by telling her that all you need to do is add some blast beats and the white noise becomes black metal.

She should try some Fripp & Eno

I started mine on REM and Southern jangle rock when they were wee'uns. One leaned into indy, DIY and punk and the other into emo and now K-pop, but I'm just happy that music plays a role in their lives and that they love live music.

True dat on enjoying music. Made me smile one day back years ago when I discovered that my son’s music tastes were arrived at from sneakily getting my iTunes play list on his phone.

Yeah. I was fairly intentional about it. I made 'em mix CDs and exposed them to pretty wide variety of stuff from show tunes to Mountain and Scots/Irish folk to classic rock to pop punk. Music and reading sunk in .... math, not so much.

Indeed. My kids are both creatives who make at least part of their career out of making art or performing. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

That's awesome. My girl is quite the artist herself and is currently in some sort of gifted and talented program for readin' n writin'. She takes after her mama I guess

Wake County approved a request for $2.36 million for 25 years to redevelop part of Cary Towne Center into an indoor sports complex. The Raleigh City Council will take it up on Tuesday.
