A View From Anew…

It’s always a wonderful surprise to discover something you’ve always known. Or rather, RE-discover something you always thought you knew, but maybe only from a certain perspective.

Heart & Jason Bonham

Children of famous musicians who try to go off and create their own sounds, are often heavily judged before they even sing or play a single note.
