But that isn't what I'm here to talk about today. The main love interest in the story, Bennett, and his sister do this thing. (In fact, this thing is technically the catalyst of the whole story because it causes Bennett's sister to be lost in time which forces Bennett to stay in a time and a place that he doesn't belong for a longer period of time than he'd normally. And in that time he meets and falls in love with Anna. Oh *happy sigh* But anyway!)
This thing they do is that they go back in time (within Bennett's lifetime anyway) and they see bands in concert. All those amazing bands that were performing the year Bennett was born or in his toddler years, he's able to go back and visit live.
I didn't think much about it while reading the book, so focused and intent was I on the swoony romance of the story, but now that I do have a bit more time ... isn't that a pretty awesome ability to have? If I were more musically minded, I think I'd have a field day on the number of musical acts I'd have like to have seen. But sadly, I'm a musical idiot.
Who would I pick? I liked Green Day quite a lot as a teenager. Perhaps I'd see Nirvana to see what the fuss was all about? Or maybe The Smashing Pumpkins? Michael Jackson? I don't know! I was born 23 July, 1982. Perhaps along with choosing your own artists, you can give me suggestions for who I should choose? :)
The all important question though, is if you could travel back in time (limited only by the date of your own birth!) to see a band or musical artist in concert, what would you do?!
