Bismillah, yes!

The phone rang late this afternoon. Our friend Larry O was calling to say he’d seen our 16-year-old son on TV.

Unbeknownst to us, there had been a session at school today with the Bohemian Rhapsody Orchestra, a Queen tribute band that’s playing its “Celebrating Queen” show here later this week.

Needless to say, Evan digs Queen.

There he was, all over TV, no doubt leading the charge.

They did “Bohemian Rhapsody,” of course, and made a run at “We Are The Champions.”

I can’t embed the video, but here’s the link. If you have me on Facebook, you can watch it there.

If you could have set Evan’s pulse and synapses to music during this session — somehow capturing the thrill, the adventure and the accomplishment of the moment — it might have gone something like this …

“Battle Theme,” Queen, from the “Flash Gordon” original soundtrack, 1980.

    The poor kid looks EXACTLY like you, say around 1973. Sorry, Janet!
