It’s hard to separate the music we hear from the emotional times of our lives.
But no doubt the greatest music we know is still great, even after years, or even after a second, it is something that endures.
I am a Maiden fan going back to 83 and they have to be technically one of the greatest rock acts to ever tour. And the actual songs I love as well.
I recently discovered Halestorm. Not as ‘metal’, but solid hard rock. Reading up on them they are an old school ethos act that seems to do because they love it. And I love what they do too.
The great thing is that Maiden has already made it’s mark and does not need a trophy. Everyone in Rock, band or fan, knows they are one of the best ever. But it’s nice to se an act like Halestorm with genuine talent get one against a sea of Rap and modern image pop.
