I got a phone call last week from one of those well-known punk rock stars. He said he read on my Facebook page that I went to the Van Halen taping in Hollywood for the Jimmy Kimmel show.
I said, “Yeah, I got tickets and me and my brother went.”
He said, “That’s cool that you put that out there.”
I asked what he meant.
He said. “Well, you know with punk rockers — you never know who’s going to get their panties in a bunch. Like, “Hey, you’re a punk writer; you’re not supposed to go to metal show!””
I replied, “Shit, I’m a music fan. I post stuff about Kiss, Johnny Cash to Kool Moe Dee. If my punk-card was going to get pulled — they would have done it long ago.”
He laughed, and then we talked about his band until the call got cut off. As it should be.
