One Saturday afternoon during my sophomore year, my father (who nicknamed himself the Rooster, after the Alice in Chains song) wanted to go to Chesterfield Mall with me -- specifically, Hot Topic -- to check out the new Pantera shirts. This was soon after Dimebag's death, renewing the Rooster's fascination with the arguable forefathers of groove-metal (if you aren't an Exhorder fan). It was kind of amazing and embarrassing at the same time -- somewhat typical teenage outlook. To make it more odd, my friend was the store's manager at the time, and he recognized me and proceeded to talk loudly about the debauchery and destruction of a recent party.
There was no need for the cover; my dad was way too enamored by the array of different designs on Pantera/Children of Bodom/Slipknot/etc. shirts. As Kevin finished up a story involving an unfortunate altercation between a lawnmower and a recliner chair, the Rooster walked up with his chosen garment. Its name on Rockabilia.com is "Cowboys From Hell Skeleton Cowboy Riding Bull With Purple Lightning Bolts & Banner Logo." He was excited.
So that's my dad.
