Gavin wonders if this is his big break. Maybe Ozzy Osbourne will hear about him!
The anticipation envelopes Gavin as he makes a grand entrance – limousine, silk suit, black boots, sunglasses … and a live heavy metal band onstage. He barely enters Alice Cooper’s Town before he a fan asks Gavin for the first of many autographs he’ll sign tonight.
Gavin basks in the rock star life. He mixes, he mingles. And then he takes the mic for a few songs. His friends and family cheer, happy to see his rock star wish unfold.
His time on the mic over, Gavin is backstage. Van Halen wanted M & Ms with the brown variety removed. Gavin? It’s oatmeal cookies for him. He eats his fill to celebrate his foray onstage.
The curtain falls on Gavin’s wish. But it leaves something behind. He was a rock star for a night – in defiance of more than 20 surgeries he’s endured. If he can put that aside all that for a night, maybe he can do it again … on his own.
