    If that guy (OP?) wasn't Norwegian, he'd be a dead, absolute dead ringer look-a-like for a middle aged singer I hooked up with for a few months who had delusions of having an original 80's style hard rock band and his songs were so awesome he was gonna make it big

    Except that one is in Open-E and is a really cool song.

    Nothing says dad-rock like a bad version of Honky Tonk Women or Brown Sugar in standard tuning. Or Van Halen.

    The headless guitar is definitely not what I think of when you mention dad-rock. Historic LP or a PRS are good dad-rock guitars. When to comes to strat style dad-rock instruments, I think of an 80's Charvel or EVH guitar. You really can't get more lame than showing up to a blues jam with an 80's shredder guitar! l also agree with the notion of dissing the offset hipster guitars.

    Lots of fun!
    I loved the drummer reaching back over his head to hit the cymbal behind him!

    Oh yeah...lol, so switch it with Brown Sugar (in open G).

    So funny, our front guy always wants to play Honky Tonk Woman but only plays in standard tuning. I always have to talk him off that ledge and let me do it in Open G.

    I think the OP being Norwegian is why he uses the Steinberg instead of a PRS or something. They really have a stoner rock and pure Rock n Roll scene up there....so their dad rock is surely more about rocking out, where ours is Dads playing stuff they missed out on or something. Like I see dads playing the Cure, when I know full well they listened to Bon Jovi and the like back in the day.

    Secondly, at 54, I wonder how in the hell I managed to avoid getting “Dad Rock Syndrome”?

    If 32 is dad rock, what’s 68? Grandpa rock.

    That's hilarious. 9+/10, for sure. +1 on ditching the headless, +1 on Teles and Les Pauls and Stones covers.

    It definitely needs to be a series, like Colbert meets Ali G meets this, with guests and interviews, in character.

    Keep it up, seriously. I was dying.

    In my lifetime there will be a bunch of old man rappers who are quite good.

    I can't freaking wait to see some 70yo man throw down on the mic one day.

    Old men are funny crap talkers as it is, but a rapper version... as sublime as it gets.

    Isn't 32 to a little young to be considered a dad rocker? I thought it was more something for/from the 40-50+ crowd. I'm 35 already and "dad rock" inherently has to refer to someone about old enough to be my own dad, surely? So more like 50+ guys playing ZZ Top covers. I suppose if you are a 30 something and a dad, and do rock, that makes you "dad rock" in a vague/general sort of way. Luckily, I'm not a dad, and can't be a dad rocker even by that definition. Who wants to be saddled with such responsibility and have no more personal freedom? Personal freedom is awesome. :)
