Sorry, was that your hair?

Why not? He paid for it.

Martin Wagner | October 27, 2005 04:59 PM

Uh-oh....Athena....Daddy's pining for the 80's, hints of impending break in mental state....I've seen this happen and it's not a pretty sight....could start singing Journey and REO Speedwagon songs without warning....nothing to be done except let the seizure run its course....in worst case scenario will come home from Goodwill with parachute pants and some really really skinny ties. So....just back away slowly from Daddy...now ruuuuunnnn!

I'm sorry, but I believe myself, my progenitors, and my descendants are the one true Rock family.

Well as soon as we sue the popular comedian out of possesion of his last name.

I ask that you cease and desist all further references to yourself as the 'Rock Family.'

Thanks in advance,
Pat Rock

Melanie Fletcher | October 27, 2005 05:51 PM

Dude, that's just wrong.

James Goodman | October 27, 2005 06:31 PM

Dude, that does indeed rock. Although, I wasn't so much reminded of Steve Perry so much as Rudy Sarzo (from Dio). Must have been the hands. :)

John Scalzi | October 27, 2005 06:42 PM

Rudy Sarzo is the Bass master! Mmmm... that great Bass taste!

John H | October 27, 2005 07:53 PM

So, does your amplifier go up to eleven?

Maureen M McCarty | October 27, 2005 09:04 PM

Duuuuuude.... you should wear those shades you were sporting at Wiscon and you'd have the Total Rockstar Look :-D

Livia Llewellyn | October 27, 2005 09:33 PM

Wow. That's a whole lot of party in the back AND the front. Dude.

Night Dog | October 27, 2005 10:16 PM

You're a Texas Longhorns fan!

Who knew?


Rock on, dudes and dudettes.

Mary | October 27, 2005 10:45 PM

Ha! This really cracked me up. Thanks for the chuckle. I salute you.

Wan Zafran | October 28, 2005 12:33 AM

I had a good laugh, heh.

May I recommend to you a couple of rocking tunes? Check out Children of Bodom's 'Hatebreeder' and 'Follow the Reaper'. Awesome stuff.

Wan Zafran | October 28, 2005 12:35 AM

Uhhh, for the above, I mean their albums.

mythago | October 28, 2005 12:42 AM

That is NOT '80s hair. Too flat.

iain | October 28, 2005 08:54 AM

The hair wails out Patty Smith (circa "Easter") more than Steve Perry.

Add a sleeveless white undershirt & you're ready to rock on Halloween.

arukasa | October 28, 2005 03:05 PM

Dude, you're totally Dave Mustaine of Megadeth -- it's all in the grinding of the teeth.

Great picture.

BUD ZEMAN | October 28, 2005 05:32 PM

Funny how John does his tribute just as Journey
releases a new album and tour...

Don't suppose he is using his oh-so-subtle
internet influence to lure Mr. Perry back?

Rock on........

Three phrases should be among the most common in our daily usage. They are: Thank you, I am grateful and I appreciate.
