Norman Weintraub longed for the days when they were just another crappy cover band. Now, three years later, he was "Desolation", front man for Desolation and the Destructive Tendencies.
His throat was raw and he was so damned tired. He'd missed his kid's first day of school, Thanksgiving and here he was doing a gig on Christmas Eve!
He threw fame under the bus that night as he took the stage. Waving the band silent, his quavering voice sang, "I'll be home for Christmas..." At song's end, he dropped the microphone and went home to the things he'd forgotten truly mattered.
