I've read several articles lately on-line, and one in Rolling Stone about how young people are listening to more and more classic rock and keeping the sales of my old favorites in high numbers!
They think the "old music" is more original and just better (I agree). One high school student put it this way:
"They were more about the music then. Now it's more about being famous,"
This thrills me and I've seen it myself in my son's friends. They'll be driving in my car and can't believe all the cool music I have on my iPod, they love to talk to me about Hendrix, Floyd, Zeppelin, The Who, Rush, Yes and on and on. They think I am so cool to like the music they listen to. HA!!!! I show them my concert ticket stub collection and they practically drool. I LOVE IT!
(P.S. My son (15) says he hates classic rock even though he can recognize all the greats (I have been "training" him in important history about it since he was two)
BUT, since I like it, he won't admit he does. I am "lame" and "uncool" no matter what his friends think. Yet, I often hear him humming a Doors tune or singing along to U2 - he can deny all he wants, but I know the truth!)
