Generation gaps

My 15 year old is obsessed by films. He is forever rambling on about them and is of course very excited about tonight's Oscars - although there will be tears before bed time if his current hero Martin Scorsese doesn't win Best Director.

He just asked me if I knew who Johnny Depp had modelled Jack Sparrow on in Pirates of the Carribean. "Keith Richards" I replied.

"Yes" says J. Followed by "Who is he anyway? Wasn't he in some band or other?"

I don't know. Was he????

Although I suppose at least he's heard of Keef, which is a start.

Stegbeetle, it is very depressing isn't it? Although upon testing him I found out he could name all four Beatles.
