I completely agree with what Hendrix said, and I too miss the glory days of great tunes from GNR, Zeppelin, and the whole in your face rock and roll approach. In a glimmer of hope, I don't think any of it is actually dead. It's just that we don't see it in the mainstream as much, todays "rock stars" are build more on look rather than music. F*** Pop Culture. It's done nothing but disgrace the integrity of the art of music. I, above all, think that is the worst thing about mainstream music. Then again, there a many of every generation that are still going out and having a great time playing the best music they can. I had the greatest time this summer going out playing, grabbing a few fans, getting drunk, only to wake up in some sh*tty motel (or worse, in the tour van) knowing we gotta drive 6-7 hrs to the next gig. I believe as long as you go out, have the best fun you can playing the music you love, those ideals are not dead. Using punk as a example, Billy Joel Armstrong (Green Day) was asked, "What do you think about people who think punk is dead?". He replied, "Punk is only dead to those who didn't get it in the first place." All our wishes in music will keep going as long as we keep doing what we can to support that music. Another thing all music goes through cycles, a genre will fade only to shine brighter some years later. I believe great music will thrive once more, cause I'm doing what I can to support the music I enjoy.
