That was the time then when amateur teen rock music enthusiasts in my age group around my hometown rather went for attribute of fair and handsomeness than any intrinsic musical value of a rocker. A pimpled classmate of mine in Bishenpur was named Elvis by his parents, after the rock’s first pop star.
