This Week's Burnt Offering

See what damage you can do with this:
Oliver had heard Metal Mass play while waiting for Percy to finish work sometimes and thought they were the most underrated hard rock act in the world. He was in awe of the fact that he was sitting and talking to them. It was even better than talking to some of the bigger name acts because none of these blokes had “rock star” attitudes. Still, he wanted to see what they had looked like in their arena rock days, and he said so.

The lead singer grinned self-consciously at the young bastard, Oliver Twist, as he pulled out a photo of himself when he was Oliver's age. Sure enough, he looked exactly like Oliver does now.
Oliver's lips quivered as he stared at the picture and muttered, "Daddy?"
"Yes, Oliver. The true story is that your mother was a groupie whore." The rock star spoke bluntly to the young Oliver as he toked a blunt and passed.
A tear began to slowly seep down the bastard Oliver's cheek, but then he grabbed a guitar and began playing in a manner to make Jimi Hendrix envious.

Man, this is great! I just love reading rock musician drama stories!
