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.
