    I don't follow trends, I never have, but a friend of mine that does (she lives in another state so I don't have to put up with it) said that classic rock is becoming one of those 'cool new things'. My dad listens to it, therefor I do. I have for as long as I can remember. To add to things, she told me 'You're a metal head, so I wouldn't expect you to understand'. Hm. It was past due time for her to have a 'Razie's history with music' lesson. I wasn't mad at her, though. She's only known me for about 6 months.

    The point is, how is it becoming a 'cool new thing'? I don't get it. It may be becoming popular with teenagers and kids that don't have parents that listen to it, but new, I don't think so. All of it older than me. I'll admit, it's better than a lot of the crap people listen to (I'm not going into genres because anything I name would simply be my opinion of what sounds horrible) is really, really bad. Most of it small children do not need to listen to. But that's beside the point.

    I'm all for classic rock making a come back. I really am, but I'm I'm still confused as to how it is new. [​IMG] The way she said it made it seem like this stuff is JUST coming out. *shrugs* I guess I'll never get it.

    Now, I'm returning to my music and listening to Jefferson Airplane/ Starship' White Rabbit. (simply put it that way because I don't remember if it was done when they were Airplane or Starship.)

    Surely you've heard the expression, "everything old is new again"? When new generations "discover" things that have been around awhile, they buy and whatever it is becomes "new" again! [​IMG]

    Personally, the music that someone listens to doesn't make them "Cool" or "Dorky". People just tend to listen to different music, every single person has a different taste in music. For instance, I like rock (The real type, not the stuff from nowadays) and indies, and my friend likes pop.

    I guess I just know where to find it because it is not new again to us.

    the only rock I can enjoy is Elvis Presley.

    Isn't Roy Orbinson rock or blues?

    I am a die hard metal head but I have noticed that the older bands (from the 70's and 80's) are all heading back out on tour. I like that rock too but I'm not gonna pay the prices they want. I'll pay $100 to get into the Mayhem Festival but I'm not paying that for Def Leppard or Motley Crue
