Kate (Age 4) and Charlie (Age 6) try to make sense of Ozzy's bat eating, John Bonham's death, and the overall behavior of Motley Crue

Fortunately, the lead singers of Skid Row and Quiet Riot provide counsel. Here. I don't ordinarily plug my own stories, mostly cause there's too many of them. But I really love this story a lot.

What does the kid say after the Ozzy clip?

"Why did he... what do you mean?"

John,
I have just completed an eponymous metal montage mixed disk. We listened to your story on Weekend America and I want to share my 26-page writeup with you. I grew up with Bill Radke's brother on Vashon and now my kids (ages 2 1/2 and 1) keep requesting Dirty Deeds by AC/DC. Shoot me an email and I'll get you and Bill a copy of my narrative. For fun.

Thank you for posting this, because I missed it over the weekend and had really wanted to hear it. Rosie is the same, but with punk music instead.

Though I played the music clips that are next to the story you linked to and she first asked, "Who is the Devil?" and when that had been explained, she began running around the house singing "Shout at the Devil"... So maybe metal too... Sigh...
