Today our Summer Music Playlist comes from the one and only Shepizzle, also known as Jon my brother. Jon has always been the music guru in the family. I remember playing air band in the basement when we were little to Queen, Steve Miller Band, Led Zeppelin, etc.
My favorite memories, though, were when we had to share a car in high school and he would blast Bob Marley during that last stretch of school just to get us in the mood for summer. He would also play Rush, using my head as a symbol while playing one of Neil Peart's drum solos.
Jon is always introducing me to new, unheard of music, and I love him for it. I'm so excited he agreed to be our guest blogger today. Take it away bro:
