The boys have been playing this lately. If you have to bring back Rock Opera (with hair and everything!), then this is doing it up right.
You see, the Boys had forgotten that he was a History Professor, and watching the whole thing made me think of dinners long ago when I had made the mistake of asking him about "Turnip" Townsend and got a fifty minute talk on the Agricultural Revolution in 18th Century Britain and its relationship to the Industrial Revolution.
Man, I sure miss those talks, but I love it when the boys play this music.
