I really enjoy this show. I also think he's doing a really good job with the kids.
As far as the sleeping with all those women, growing up in the 60's and early 70's, it wouldn't surprise me at all. I'm sure quite a few of the old rock stars slept with quite a few also.
I do think the kids should realize though, that not only rock and rollers make that claim. I seem to recall one or two big time basketball players making the same claim. I want say Magic Johnson was one of them (can't remember the other one). Unfortunately for Magic, he paid the highest price.
I think the kids at that school should be aware that Rock and Roll doesn't automatically mean sex and drugs, because if you believe that, then you have to include many other groups. Including Sports and show biz personalities.
I think the basketball player you are referring to is Wilt Chamberlain.

Man oh man what I would have given for Gene Simmons to come to my school and me try to be in a band (and I can't play any damn instrument or sing worth a sh*t but I would've faked it just so I could've been around him!). I've always loved his attitude and cockiness and of course that tongue....oh lordy lordy lordy! :blush I remember one time the members of KISS were on Oprah and she asked Gene how long his tongue was and he said long enough to make me and you really close friends and I remember even Oprah was blushing! I loved it!! :rofl

Extremely effective say you? Please, anyone with musical knowledge could teach those adorable little british children. Gimme a break. Frankly.... I think Sir Elton John himself could do a far better job. Oh, and the bonus would be that people would actually WANT to listen to them play! :up
