"It's just a shame that in 1987 there are sixteen year olds who have never heard of Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix. Look, if Bob Dylan walked into a record company today and played them Subterranean Homesick Blues and told them it was a hit record, they would show him the door. If Jimi Hendrix came along now, he wouldn't get a deal. The record companies would file him under 'Black and Confused' or 'Out of Tune'."
Which is basically what I've been saying for years...it's very disappointing to me that kids today especially, (i'm speaking for the people i know at school) have no idea as to what real music is. The beautiful spirit of rock n roll.
The fact that they scoff when they hear I like David Bowie or The Rolling Stones or, yes, U2. Because Ashlee Simpson and 50 Cent are obviously cooler and all around better.
