As the weather starts to chill and snow starts to fall I get the unavoidable desire to delve into the desolate and far colder realm of outer space.

Music Memoirs and Air Guitars

Lita Ford

So I’ve had this vision. It’s of Bill and Ted, grown older – maybe a little wiser. They have jobs and families, expanding waist lines and thinning hair. But still, when they encounter something that is most excellent, something that rejuvenates them and makes them feel alive, even if for just a moment, they discreetly lean back and play a wicked air guitar. It’s not quite as loud as we all remember; it’s not quite as fast. But it is as necessary as ever – maybe more necessary now than it’s ever been. It’s a reminder that hey hey, my my, rock & roll can never die.

Thanksgiving has come and gone (I know, right?), which means that the holiday season is upon us now with all of its trappings: pumpkin spice lattes, mall traffic, snow angels, and tryptophan. This is also the busiest travel time of the year, with people going every which way across our great nation. Of course, as any reader knows, books allow you to travel without the pleasure of experiencing DIA's cattle drive in your socks. And for those of us who will be stuck in planes, trains, and automobiles over the coming weeks, maybe you'll finally have time to unwind with a good book.
