    The music today just does not have the right stuff. Most guys voices are famine. The sound is to condensed. Three lead or rather guitars no real beat. The beauty of real Rock was how the songs were put together. They had the bas a lead guitar the bass the drums and the lead singer. Every instrument had it's place and the instruments complemented each other. Back ground singers a horn section and keyboard. Not one instrument drowned out the other. That is why they say the beatles were not great musicians. They worked a song together. The stones started out doing ballads and then learned to write. Zepplin was awesome. Pink Floyd was so unique. You people that say that rock ran it's coarse are wrong. Steak has been around forever. I'd rather have a good steak ove minced meat. Like steak, prime rib they are timeless. And I'll take 2 hours of rock over condensed noise and fireworks cause today's music they need the pyro tropics to desert you from the noise. The same holds true for the blues Motown and soul over Rap.
