Aging Punk Rockers
Aging punk rockers is clearly the theme of the day.
I stopped by the Apple store in Soho on the way back from a meeting today. If you haven’t been to this store, it is disneyland for a guy like me.
I had to get some accessories for my iPod. I got in line to check out and David Byrne is in line in front of me, buying essentially the same stuff I am buying plus some blank CDs so he can rip, mix, burn.
Beside the fact that David Byrne is one of the coolest people alive, and a great musician, and in his day one of the best punk rockers ever, he’s a real person, who stands in line, carries a back pack, and buys his own stuff, and is a member of the iPod generation.
I thought for a second about snapping a picture, but decided that I don’t want to be part of the snapperazi, one of the few digital trends that I don’t particularly like.
That was a nice moment in an otherwise hectic day.
