....Do you remember what  your very first cd/album/full length piece of music was?....I do.....I remember it vividly.....it was Back In Black by AC/DC......I actually had a walkman....remember those?....I must have played it t million times!!!....the first time I heard Rock and Roll ain't Noise Pollution  I knew i was beyond hooked....I grew up on Back In Black.....as well as 2112/Fly By Night/Moving Pictures (Rush)....and Pink Floyd....(any)......and bands like Def Leppard.....The Clash.....U2....VH.......Motley Crue....and many others too numerous to mention.......are todays bands better?....I would say that in some ways yes and in some ways no.....I absolutely  love bands like Seether....Stone Sour......Shinedown....Papa Roach.....STP....Alice In Chains.....Soundgarden...Distturbed....Chevelle......etc.....and honestly I don't think its fair to compare them to bands that I grew up with simply due to the fact it's two different eras completely..   That's what makes rock the greatest format ever conceived.....it evolves....it changes....it adapts....and that's why it will always be here....as long as there are people who can not stand conformity....people who not only relish breaking the rules....but relish to the same extent creating their own rules.....rock will survive.....no other format has that type of fluxuality to it....no other format is as apparent and vocal about the overall environment in which human kind exists....if that makes any sense.....no other format more adequately reflects the overall mood/anger/happiness/sadness/joy/excitement         of people......period.....it is merely a reflection of us all......and thats what makes it so incredible..........thank you as always for checking in!    Rick
