This little guy went on the whole journey with me— I was 20 years old & I took fatherhood seriously. he saw the hard times and shared the good times. We saw the world together. he knows the difference first hand between having nothing and having everything. This little guy has been on a fantasy Pisces journey from day one, & still searching this planet for a new adventure today👍
I can honestly say having a child and being responsible at 20 years old while starting a career in rock ‘n’ roll, this little guy right here may be the savior that kept me straight, on track and in good health today. I thank you for that and much more Aaron. happy birthday I feel like you’re more of a brother than a son today. ❤️ Pop. PS I would have a toast with him today but this guy has never drunk, taken drugs, or smoked in his life…wow, I’ll drink to that”
