However, that's not what this post is about. He DID steal it, but since he's fallen in love with it (and he's twelve, which is good), I can do without it for a few more days.
This post is about What album should I force him to listen to next?
We are talking about a kid who otherwise likes the Beatles and Zeppelin, so I'm trying to cater toward that.
Also, he took up the guitar recently, and wants to learn some Queen stuff. I've been kind of nudging him along, but I don't really know that much Queen - I don't have a working amp. No "Brighton Rock", please, something a little simpler.
Well, I'd suggest Queen II or SHA. Basically, any of their earlier stuff. That's what a lot people get hooked on first.
As for a song, can this person read guitar tabs? Maybe starting with Freddie's rhythym playing would be a good start, like on Crazy Little Thing.
As well, G&G, TOFBRA sent you an email, did you get it?
I got the TOFBRA e-mail, Chancellor. Very glad to hear it. I'm rooting through some stuff to send you folks as we speak.
And Tingler, there's a flaw in your plan. I LOVE Hot Space :) So that wouldn't constitute torture, would it?
"My friend stole my copy of ANATO"
Go to his house, do what you have to do, and, afterwards, go for your mother and sing:
"momma, just killed a man..." :D
You DO understand that was a joke of mine, don't you? Don't just go there, kill the guy and then sue me, ok?! ;)
Well, the good news is, I've got my copy of ANATO back - yay.
The really good news is, I lent Evan News of the World.
The really, really good news is, he LOVES it.
The bad news is that now I am without my favorite Queen album. Hmph.
A perfect situation for CD copying ;)
You see, getting people interested via free music does no harm. He'll grow older and start buying Queen music and no harm will be done.
Besides, what's the difference in him having the only copy vs. a copy?
I rest my case.
