Teen-Age Time Killers: “How About Guitars?” says This CEO

“You can either stick a guitar or a piano in some people’s hands, or you can stick some pot or some pills or some cigarettes or some booze. Let me know which one is going to reap long term rewards,” he said passionately, “because they both kill time beautifully. So which one do you want your kids to be exposed to? Which one is actually going to be a creative outlet? Because kids by definition are creative, they’re curious.

“Hell of a lot easier, trust me, to learn how to play guitar or piano when you’re seven than when you’re seventeen. It was like learning a new language for me. Our schools need less Ritalin and more guitars.”
