Default Re: Dick Clarks New Years Special

I watched the Fox network last night and concur with everything that has been said. For sure, there are no "new" exciting rock groups to play these events. The old guard has passed and we are left with Country or "American Idol" Pop, which is all about the singular performer with a canned back up band, choreographers and sound people. Metal and Rap have also largely replaced Rock. Pop acts like Lady GaGa is what the kids want and Lady GaGa is what we get. I honestly think rock is dead.

Things are getting so bad I'm gonna start listening and playing to Jazz. (Not!) And no hate please. Pity me only, as I'm already seriously sleep deprived and depressed. By tomorrow, after I get some sleep, I'll take back everything I said. :)
