“Your Son is your Son ‘till he takes a wife, but your Daughter is your Daughter for the rest of your life”

No one seems to know who first uttered this quote, but it has definitely stood the test of time. The first time I ever heard it was from my mother when my wife and I had our one and only child. At first I thought my mother was just being (as always) supportive, because, being Italian, it is assumed I wanted a boy child to carry on the family name and be a ‘chip off the old block’. The truth of the matter is that I prayed for a little girl…and we were blessed with one of the best.

If this seems a little bit dated it is because it went missing in cyberspace last week sometime on Tuesday.

I can tell you now that Cobra Ramone rocked, Bellwoods played a great show at The Rivoli and 54.40 did a fine job in The Beach last Saturday night.

(Editor’s Note – This column was originally meant to run last week. It somehow ended up in my SPAM folder and was hidden from sight until Cam sent it to me again with the update above. Here’s the column that was originally slated to be published a week ago today.)

Cameron Carpenter: The ABC’s Of Rock’n’Roll – V is for Various

CamNadia’s column yesterday started a beehive of activity on Facebook as she mused in her writing about music that she currently hates. It is amusing to read the comments and the passion that music can evoke. For the majority of my writing career I have always tried to stay on the positive side of the fence and write about bands and music that moves me and, by doing so, hopefully turn some people on to something new, or, something old and great. At the same time there is nothing I enjoy more than a good band thrashing in print. Continue reading

Cameron Carpenter: The ABC’s Of Rock’n’Roll – Just For You

CamWell the stars did align last Saturday night for the family Segarini. As you may have read in Bob’s column it was going to be Daddy/Daughter night at the Slaughter show at the Phoenix in Toronto. Bob’s daughter Amy became enamoured with the band in her pre-teen days and I had the chance to introduce her to them at the Hard Rock Café way back in the day. She had purchased a star for the band and never had the opportunity to give them the certificate and coordinates. Last week was the first time the band would be playing in Toronto for the last dozen or so years, and Amy, in anticipation, purchased another star for them and hoped she would get the chance to present it.
