Do you ever get the feeling that the story’s too damn real

My dad gave me many things in his life – supported me, loved me, and taught me. All the things a parent should do.

But he also gave me rock n’ roll n’ science fiction. He gave me Jimi, The Doors, Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, The Who – every seventies dinosaur who swaggered on stage and kicked out a beat and roared.

He gave me space travel and aliens and worlds that existed only in the imagination.

I can’t really say anything that will ever do him justice, but I’m glad he was my father and I miss him so much it hurts.
