Default Re: The death of Rock n Roll?

I find the death of rock and roll to be a myth. Like the death of opera (a topic they've been talking about since at least opera's 2nd decade.) Well, that form is now over 400 years old and still going strong.Or the death of the American Theatre (the fabulous invalid) Rock has splintered into sub genres like hip hop and the like but it is obviously still alive and well and has only been around as rock and roll for a little over 60 years. It's a very young form of music which drew on the pop music of the 100 years before it's "advent"(someone coming up with the new name of pop so a new generation would identify it as their own when it's still basically the same harmonic/melodic material they were using 300 years ago.)
