Ok folks. I need help.

I understand that rock these days has changed. My ear and heart are still begging for the sounds of my youth - '70-'80s era but my brain is craving what's current and new.

I feel moss growing on my aged rump. A stone no longer rolling...

Who should I be listening to today? 2022?

Absolutely nowt worth listening to..... (for anyone not a Brit, "nowt" is slang for nothing)

Or have a read of this. Who knows, you might find something you'd enjoy.

I wish this forum had a "block user" feature. Possibly I'm not the only one......

Thanks Draco- I'll take a look at the link.

While "classic rock" is becoming a niche there is some new stuff happening. Great Van Fleet isn't totally new, but recent and some of it is not too bad. A US group named Dirty Honey has a good sound. We'll see where they go.

Anyway. Hope springs eternal. Rock isn't dead yet.

Draco - just checked out that link. Thanks for the lead because I've never heard of any of them. Definitely not a path I would have found for myself. Interesting. I'll let you know how it goes. Any personal suggestions from the list?

*edit After further listening, I can't recommend any on the list.... Pretty much all seemed of limited interest: two or three songs, then I'd lost interest. Some reasonably good guitar riffs here and there, though.

I can't honestly say there's anything "new" about any of the groups mentioned, but is "new" even possible???

The Kerrang website is always worth visiting for a read.

Still looking but I've found some good stuff:

1. Dirty Honey: "Rolling 7's". https://youtu.be/42rmUlDiQDI

and "When I'm gone". https://youtu.be/I8ygfX0BavM

I think they're based in California. Good stuff.

2. Crobot: "Better Times". https://youtu.be/kutQNy8dLBQ

And "Under a Pale Horse". https://youtu.be/xYfaWDXikYY

I believe these guys are from somewhere in Pennsylvania. They just opened a show for another band here in Memphis and brought the f&$king house down.

I'm sure there's more. I'll keep looking. I love my old stuff but I crave the new.
