Over the weekend, I posed that question and got quite the response.
Most were adamant that Rock is indeed not dead, yet I still have my doubts. The musical world has continued to spiral downward into the abyss, being pushed and prodded as it drops further and further away from rock, away from talent, away from anything original.
Don’t even get me started on the AMA from last night… sheesh Louise.
The 45th Annual American Music Awards took place on November 19, 2017, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. It was broadcast on ABC and was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.
Gross. I mean, seriously? Suffice to say… not a fan.
Anyway, if you are a fan – more power to you. Really. If music moves you, then you are blessed… which is why we always say: Rock on!!
…stolen from and correctly pronounced using Chris Hardwick’s voice.
I tend to think that if something doesn’t change soon, we might have finally seen the end of guitar rock.
Lots of factors in all this, but the biggest was from the industry itself. The music industry stopped pushing rock a long time ago, and the effects were devastating for us musician wanna be’s.
All that’s left really is live shows, and that is not very sustainable.
So here’s to the rock, and the guitar and the bass and the drums! Here’s to what time we have left, and the memories of how great guitar driven music could be!
Rock on everyone!
