“I turned 40 today. “
I’m pretty sure that I have shoes that old. :-)

Good One and then there is this one as well:

Same reaction when I heard Bon Jovi on 105.7 Cleveland.

“My son is 14. His favorite band is Slipknot.”

Each day I thank God my 9-year old son still likes the stuff I like. When he hears a car go down the street blasting that annoying boom boom sound or hip hop, he says its dumb-dumb music.

He likes listening to a 60s oldies station during the day, and he loves going to bed listening to my Edgar Bergen / Charlie McCarthy old time radio cassettes. I stopped asking him to stop laughing and go to bed, hoping that this continues.

I find myself listening to the “oldies” station more and more now, especially with lady gaga and the like on everywhere else!

I know what you mean. They used to say music was marketed to the 18 - 35 demographic but today they calculate that in months rather than years.

Oh, my son does like some of my ‘70s and ‘80s stuff. He’s really into Clapton’s older stuff. And Pink Floyd fascinates him. He’s even sat through “The Wall.” Guitar Hero and Rock Band makes it cool for kids to like their parents music these days.

Slipknot isn't so much music, as rythmic noise. You could get the same effect in a manufacturing plant.

But, what the heck. They're well packaged and are making millions off the foolishness of youth. :-)

With the advent of IPods, I'll make my millions later, selling Gen Y (soon to be referred to as the 'hunh?' generation) hearing aids.

Smells Like Teen Spirit - because that sound has been dead and rotting for 15 years.

Welcome to old age.

We saw Plant with Alison Krauss at Mohegan Sun two or three years ago. They were fantastic.

Sad...

I don't disagree with that opinion, but I also think there are some other factors. There is not as great of a gap in audio and video quality between the decades between say 1980 and today, and the 1950 - 1980. This makes older music still listenable to ears grown up with current technology.

And two, my opinion, which seems to be more vocally shared even by teenagers today, is that today's music sucks. With Youtube and mp3, they can find older music they can connect to which doesn't suck as much, but is older.

Video didn't kill the radio star, clear channel did. There is a lot of great music out there but it isn't on the radio.

Current musical obsession The Avett Brothers for instance.

There is a much wider access to older music now that is true, and I would say the changes since most of that has come out haven't created a disconnect from it. And some things are timeless. In a hundred, two hundred years, people are still going to be going through things that will allow them to connect to Blood on the Tracks. And probably still waiting on the next Dylan.

I could never get into grunge stuff when it was actually coming out. It wasn’t until college. And even then it is mostly Soundgarden.
