I’m Old


To many of you, this isn’t news.  It was official about two or three years ago, actually, when I made a disparaging comment about the state of modern music.  However, even at the time, I wasn’t saying that all modern music sucks, it’s just that I’m  hard-pressed to believe we’ll see game-changers in rock and roll like we did in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s – and even, to some extent, the early ’90s (sorry, not trying to rag on grunge, but I can’t always distinguish between grunge and some baser forms of punk or even just straight rock.  Maybe that makes me a bad person).  There are a ton of bands outside of this time frame that I love, including some that I recognize are musically horrible but are incredibly catchy and I can’t help myself (no, I’m not sorry, and you can’t make me be).  I just can’t help but wonder if it really all has been done at this point.
