Bon Jovi is FINALLY being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. But here's a wonderful coincidence, and it concerns my son.

My son Benj, when he was younger, once ran into Jon Bon Jovi. And Jon stopped to chat with him from one musician to another, including his thoughts on what kind of guitar Benj should get.

It was a moment I won't forget. But imagine having your son tell you "But Mom...Jon Bon Jovi told me that I should have a Taylor guitar!." (And it wasn't cheap, mind you.)

Anyway, thanks, Jon, for passing on your rock star advice to my son, and congratulations on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As for the happy coincidence.....my son got to perform at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland this past summer with the band he's in, and they invited back to play again this year. So maybe some of Jon's rock and roll awesomeness rubbed off on Benj after all!

(Benj plays drums with the band Marel Hidalgo & The Stone Feathers. Pictured here with McKaela Jones and Marel Hidalgo. Such talented kids!)
