Not only can I confirm the fantastically loud music at home and the child labor, but my parents took Brandon and me to many music concerts, as well. Brandon's first concert was when he was SIX YEARS OLD! At that first one, we went to see the Eagles. Since he was a tiny 6 years old and it was SO late, the little guy fell asleep before the encore. When the first notes of the next song came blaring through the speakers, Brandon mumbled loudly, "turn it over daddy"! Apparently, he liked the flip side of the record better. I remember everyone around us thought that was the most adorable thing they had ever heard in their whole life. I loved every minute of it.
