I never used to believe, let alone like, rock ‘n roll, but one day rock ‘n roll changed my life forever. I went to a rock concert with a friend and only knew a few of the really famous songs. I ended up liking the songs I didn’t know, better that the ones I knew. Every song seems to be written for me, about me. I believe in rock n’ roll! Ever since then, I must admit, I’ve been addicted.

I believe that rock ‘n roll is good for the soul, mind, and a persons emotions. If I need to get away, I can. If I need to scream, I can. If I am so mad and need to hear a couple swear words in a row, I can. I believe that every person, some time in their life needs to let loose and rock n’ roll!
