If I were a doctor, I’d be a rock doctor. And when I examined my patients, I’d ask them not only about their diets, their exercise regimens and sleep habits, but also how much rock music they are taking in. And when I prescribe drugs for what ails them, I’ll be ready to prescribe a good dose of rock music as well.
There in the examination room, behind the closed door, I’ll take out my stethoscope and listen to my patient’s heartbeat. Then I’ll look him in the eye and say, “Did you see Thalia Zedek at PJ’s Lounge?” If not, I’ll take out my pad and prescribe the next show.
Odd? Maybe. But 25 years from now, this will be the new normal in the primary care field, thanks to me.
