That's true, and that's good music, but I really have to wonder......dont make 'em like this anymore...
That concert was about 45 years ago.
Did our parents listen to their parents' music? Sure they did, a bit, but mostly they were looking for something new, which is what led to rock and roll.
What about our grandparents? There were lots of new sounds in their day; jazz, swing, and so on. And for the most part they ditched the old stuff in favor of what was new.
And here we are today, still grooving to what was current in our parents' day. Modern music has become stagnant. We're still looking backwards to what is familiar rather than looking forwards to the next new thing. It's sad.
