While reading Claire Suddath’s article about rock stars in the Nashville Scene the other day, I realized how dead-on she is with her description of rock star wannabee’s.

I want to be a rockstar. How about you?


So I’ve thought about it for a while, and I’m pretty sure that I want to be a rock star. I don’t have any experience as a rock star — my college didn’t have a rock star major and I have no idea what an appropriate summer internship would be like — but I’m young and my career has just begun. I could probably still be a rock star if I really wanted to.

It gets better.

In fact, her characterizations of rock stars and society’s fascination with and glamorization of these musical wonderboys (and girls) are guaranteed to make you laugh.

Now, for the rock star wannabe inside us all…

Here are some ways that you, too, can be a rock star (…or at least look like one!)

First, check out this hilarious video of Todd Snider performing his “Seattle Grunge Blues” song:
