Why I love Cheap Trick - 25
Okay, for the last almost three weeks, I have become consumed by Cheap Trick's awesomeness. The only thing that has truly preoccupied me, though, and that has been bothering me, is what color Tom Petersson's eyes are! I swear, I thought they were blue! They looked blue in some photos I have seen. Then again, in others they actually look green. Everywhere on the "House of Tom" page on Facebook, I keep seeing that the owner of the page loves his green eyes. On other message boards, I have seen that people like his green eyes. There was even a topic on the Cheap Trick message board, where someone posted a photo (or a link to a photo) and he was wearing a green shirt, and someone said his shirt matches his eyes, meaning that they're green. Yet, in some photos, I have clearly seen his eyes are blue. But, I also read a story from someone who got to meet him back in the 90s, the year I was born, and she said he was her first Rock 'n' Roll crush. She said she loved his blue eyes. I have a few possibilities here:

A) I'm colorblind.
B) Everyone else is colorblind.
C) I'm terribly mistaken about his eyes being blue.
D) Everyone else is terribly mistaken about his eyes being green.
E) His eyes are actually green.

But with those glasses of his, which I love, make it very difficult to actually tell what color those beautiful eyes are. This thing is ensconced in mystery and it is bothering me. If anyone reading this has any insight, please, for the love of God, tell me. Google is absolutely no help, considering all I get is stuff about In Color. Alright, enough rambling, onto the pictures. Enjoy Rick Nielsen, even though the above words are all about Tom. xp
