A lot of our favorite Glam heroes have kids - some have been honest about not being the best fathers while others are truly devoted to their kids. When I was trying to think of a song to talk about today, I had a really hard time coming up with anything positive... let alone Glam. In fact, I failed miserably.
There are all sorts of negative Glam songs about dads, especially Ugly Kid Joe's remake of "Cat's in the Cradle." That song is downright harsh. Do you think the negative tones are reminiscent of poor childhoods or just musicians blaming angst on their dads? Perhaps it's a masculine issue, too. There are so many positive songs about mothers...I feel there should be just as many about fathers. Someone - anyone - help me think of a positive Glam tune about dads. Please, don't suggest "Butterfly Kisses" though because 1) the song makes me twitch and 2) it ain't Glam.
In the meantime, here's my favorite musical dads - Aerosmith - performing "Love In An Elevator."
