I do not have kids but I certainly was heavily influenced by my dad's love of jazz. To this day, I still am a huge big band fan.

At 13, I went from Count Basie to KISS! As long as my grades were good, my parents did not mind buying me KISS, Whitesnake, AC/DC or Maiden records. But when they went through a more difficult phase, my "noise collection" was threatened by unhappy parents! :-) Overall, my folks have always supported my tastes. My dad - who basically thinks that every new type of music that was invented after 1950 is too modern - always had the curiosity / interest to still listen to some of my stuff. I remember him liking Michael Schenker's "Bijou Pleasurette" or Whitesnake's "Belgian Tom's Hat Trick". My mom was never fond of Ace Frehley's "Shock Me" though! LOL

I have always spoken about "my" music with one of my nieces. She went through her teenage years thinking I am an old fart. She was listening to rap and radio stuff. In her early 20's now, she is taking up drums and loving Iron Maiden, Motorhead and other metal bands. She is even "jealous" of me because I have seen these guys back in their heydays. She is asking questions about how it was back then, etc. and I am happy to indulge :-) I went from "old fart" to "cool Uncle" LOL
