There is a LOT of music out there. Some is creative, some is not. Personally I feel this is a great time for music. The internet has made it possible for even this guy http://www.that1guy.com/
to be heard.
When I hear the music younger drummers are listening to I feel inspired and see a great deal of creativity going on. Just listen to Thomas Haake or Chris Pennie. Music is at the best point it's been in years. IMO
