When you’re a couple of grown-ups with wives and new babies and chores and remodeling projects and honey-do lists and commutes and mortgages and car payments, and are still playing rock band (literally, not the video game, which is indescribably frustrating to play when you actually know how to play the actual songs on actual instruments), it’s impossible to take yourselves too seriously. Because no matter how cool you may like to think you are, you inevitably end up looking like the final act of Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey, in which the protagonists triumphantly return from a phone-booth journey to the future with The Princesses, wearing those baby-carrier backpacks, which you actually do own in real life because it’s easier on the ol’ back. And not only do you like it, you’ve never been happier.
