Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and his name is Neil Fallon. Fallon is the vocalist for the band Clutch and he just helped make a boy’s dream come true by writing lyrics and lending his vocals to new song called “The Joy of Homeschooling”, composed by 9 year old Tyler Pomerantz.
So now you might be wondering how this holiday miracle came to be. Fallon explains:
“A few months back, it was brought to my attention, that there is a father-son duo who cover Clutch and a bunch of other bands and do a great job of it,” Fallon stated in a video. “They are on Twitter, and I believe their handle is @clutch2210. The father’s name is Adam and the son’s name is Tyler and Tyler, I believe, is nine-years-old. So I reached out to Adam and said, ‘Well, why don’t I just lay down some vocals on one of these Clutch covers you’ve been doing?’ I figured it’d be fun, and well, why not?”
“Adam got back to me and said, ‘That’s great… however Tyler has a bunch of original material.’ To be honest, when I heard this, I said, ‘Oh boy, what have I gotten myself into here?’ But then he sent the track and I stood corrected: Tyler knows how to write a mean riff.”
“I’d just like to get this off my chest,” Fallon adds. “I’ve heard the phrase Dad Rock throw around, kind of a derogatory, negative, snarky thing to say, as if Dad Rock is a bad thing. It’s not a bad thing. It’s awesome. So if you want Dad Rock, we’ll give you Dad Rock…”
