Oh, go ahead and Google Susan Boyle; I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised. . .

80s rock? 90s rock? I can remember a few songs from the 70s, but c'mon - the Beatles were a 60s phenomenon. . . ;)

And honestly, the best part of the 80s for me was marrying Molly, and the births of our first three children. And those are still with me. . .
