Right now I feel like an old person trapped in a young persons body. This feeling is only because I can name off great southern rock albums from 30 years ago but cant tell u anything about the new Raconteurs album (but what Ive heard tonight on pandora rocks). Also all the new music coming out that I want to get seems to be from older artist like Steve Winwood, Mudcrutch, John Mellencamp, when I know there are newer artist just as good maybe even better. I dont know what this means maybe Im not hip enough to the new groups or Im an old person stuck in my body

My son, Billy, keeps telling me that we had all the good music back in the day. I think he feels a little like you. His remark is that there are quite a few bands/artists that have been around for 30 years, and most bands from the last 2 decades didn't even make it 10 years.

My son Ken likes some of each.

Derek is more of a 70's music kid.


They both think candleass sucks.

Just because you like good music you shouldn't feel old. You should feel educated....refined....cool....

I recently did a job in a customers home, her teenage sons (3 of them) had their walls plastered with Grateful Dead, ABB, DTB, EC, Santana. etc. posters and ticket stubs. I congradulated her for bringing up her sons properly. We had lots to talk about

Can I claim the music that these artist made in the past 10 years as part of my generations music. I mean I really like Pink Floyd (all of it just not DSOM and The Wall) but David Gilmours On An Island album was really good and gets more listens from me than DSOTM and Tom Petty IMO released his best album ever with Highway Companion and from what Ive heard from Mudcrutch stands up to his classic hits. I mean I can go on like Steve Winwood's About Time from a couple of years ago is one of his best and the last 2 Steely Dan records Everything Must Go and Two Against Nature are my favorites from them.

But also all the newer bands out there like Back Door Slam, White Stripes, Tool, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Derek Trucks Band, moe, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modest Mouse, Honeytribe, Queens of the Stone Age, Against Me, and local bands all deserve listening time. Man I need to get rich and create a radio station out of my pockets and get people who care about music from all generations to be my DJs and play all this stuff plus alot more I havent mentioned in my little rant

I have children your age, and since music is a passion for me, I speak too many kids your age (I'm assuming you're in your late teens) and you may be shocked how many kids are into the same type of music you are. We have some excellent discussions, and I'm proud to say many of the kids are well versed on the "classic" bands. FWIW I also enjoy many of the newer bands you have listed.

John Fogerty's last release, Revival, was outstanding.

Thanks maybe getting out of this town and meeting new people when I transfer colleges will do the trick.

I dont have posters though.

I listen to almost everything...old,new....just whatever....i will say,that IMO,the new Raconteurs cd is excellent !!! I find one way to learn about newer band's is samplers...like the one's that come attached to Classic Rock,Relix & several other mag's ....found some good band's thru those....

Issac,

Ive felt the same way you do my whole liife. Im 22 so in high school all my buddies listened to Limp Bizkit, Korn Etc. I'd turn on the brothers they'd tell me to turn that Sh*t off. To me i long as i know what good music to me is thats all matters. I have this discussion every christmas about all the new crap thats on the radio. I said just becuse they play it on the radio and it sells doesnt mean its good music but were also talking about a guy who went to see the ABB and didnt even get up and groove!!

Ken currently has the Grateful Dead's version of El Paso stuck in his head.

I searched youtube so he can hear the original. (He thought the Dead was the original version)

Found this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=8EJPFEX-DCY&feature=related


Pretty amusing pics to go with the music.

It all goes around. To many kids,

"Back Door Slam, White Stripes, Tool, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Weezer, Foo Fighters, Derek Trucks Band, moe, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Modest Mouse, Honeytribe, Queens of the Stone Age, Against Me,

would be old bands.

I only worry about whether I like it. Also keep an open mind to suggestions.

It really is just a matter of personal preference. And you definitely shouldn't feel like an old person trapped in a young person's body just because you can appreciate older music.

But to a certain extent, I know how you feel. I'm 24, but I grew up listening to only music from my parents' generation. We weren't even allowed to play the pop radio stations until I was about 13. But very few of my friends understand my musical tastes. I got lucky, because I went to college in the South, so people at least knew who I was talking about when I mentioned certain bands. But a lot of the time, people ask me if I've heard the new song by so-and-so and I have no idea what they're talking about. I don't listen to the radio, and on the rare occasions that I do, I listen to WXPN so I get a better variety of music.

What it comes down to, is just listen to what you like.

As others have said, don't worry whether it's old or new music, enjoy whatever your tastes take you to. One benefit of youth is you can withstand festivals better than us older folks. You can discover much at these fests, and there's music too!

I was 24 when I went to a Van Halen show and felt like an old geezer.
I left about 3/4 the way through the show and I was never so glad to get out of a concert as I was that one.

Not just you Isaac ... my son is 31 next month and some of his favorites are Pink Floyd and Grateful Dead. His last year b-day gift was tix to Roger Waters for him and his fiance (which I attended with them - as well as previous Roger Waters, GD, etc... guess those subliminal musical messages at home worked. ) Just kidding on the subliminal messages - I never tried to control his musical tastes, he developed them on his own. Really glad we ended up on the same page, though!

Your hip enough not to follow the other herds !
You have mature taste, and thats a plus.

Wisdom beyond my years.

I wonder if this feeling is the same for like people in the 60's folk revival or something like that.
