Default Re: Can younger people appreciate music better than people of an advanced age?

Looks like the striped Madge and Bacterium Boxfrugus has resumed clique-building activities :)

I tried very hard to get into it because some local friends were into it, but something about it didn't work for me. I was much more into the British bands and sound (without knowing it).

lol no, it was self referential. Jay had written "Young people, and musicians, can appreciate music far better than anyone else, age notwithstanding, for reasons too obvious to need to go into" and I went into it :)

The term "Captain Obvious" was stolen from Larry(ace) when he made a statement that he thought was obvious ...

I get in trouble from that. My nephew complained to me that whenever he played me some music I'd say "That's just like ..." (ie. point out the influences and ripoffs). Either that or dis the techno, usually with something vaguely positive during the psychedelic setup of the first few bars and complete distaste once the doofing starts.
