Is Rock Dead in the general publics eye?
<p> Is Rock and Roll dead? I mean real rock.What happened to the Jimmy Pagse, Slashes, Keith Richards, Joe Perrys, Angus Youngs, Johnny Thunder, you know what I’m getting at. Most new music on rock radio sucks. I know rock has evolved over the years, from Buddy Holly and Chuck Berry to Jimmi Hendrix then on to Slash. But it seems to me rock died when Gun’s n Roses disbanded. The only other band I can relate to is Buck Cherry, and a few others, but they’re missing a little something that all the others mentioned have. Also I feel I’m always looked down upon, when people know I play and love classic rock, like I’m a spider on the wall. I guess it comes with age. I used to think my Dad was a nut when he bragged about Dizzy Gillespie, Tommy Dorsey and others. <br /> Now look what we have here. I’d have to say at least 95% of the music I have heard here on the Mix should be on the radio. Why isn’t it? Is it because the big wigs at Clear channel know what we want to hear? Why don’t they come to the Mix and listen to some music here? Or any of the other sites out there and find real music again?<br /> I know it’s a hard wall to break down but we have an army here at the Mix, so like Ronald Regan said to Gorbachev let’s “ Tear down that wall”!! Peace to all!! RJ</p>
