Oh, man does music hold memories for me. It seems that every important chapter of my life can be summed upped in a good classic rock song. And oddly, most of them are by Bob Seger, but the one that takes me back to my teen years is ?Like a Rock?. It was the summer of ?68, and I was just out of high school and working full time in a factory. Like the song says I was working for peanuts, but I was carefree, strong, and ready to take on the world. Of course, the world had other plans, like the cancer that took my mother the following year, not to mention all the social and political unrest that marked the Summer of Love. The late ?60?s were an exciting, painful time and this song really brings back the hope and optimisms I had as an 18 year old. But sometimes, to quote Mr. Seger, I wish I didn?t know now what I didn?t know then.
