Way to go on dissing a whole generation of musicians, you guys who said today's music sucks could at least started the sentence with "well, in my
opinion" but no you just assume that today's music sucks and requires no talent just because you've seen some "edgy" videos that your children
watch on t.v. And on top of that you assume music today sucks because of HIP-HOP LOL BECAUSE THAT MUSIC DEFINITELY DEFINES ME AND MY GENERATION TO THE
MAX. Not even all hip-hop is even remotely close to bad, (deltron 3030, sage francis, NWA, etc.. all sing about, and with talent, about the same kind
of crap this forum talks about). I'm not even going to go into metal (which IS my music), because I know you'll assume that I eat kittens and
slaughter the innocent all day.
Look up some contemporary musicians like Buckethead, Steve Vai, Gordian Knot, Cynic, Paul Gilbert, Primus, Rage Against the Machine, Opeth,
Meshuggah, Control Denied, Deltron 3030, The Mars Volta, Coheed and Cambria, Thrice (80s music can go either way)...and tell me that they suck and
have no talent. Sorry, Jimi Hendrix was f'ing great but he would get blown out of the water by many, many musicians today. And guess what, I LOVE
CLASSIC ROCK, I grew up on it and the music of today is just a natural progression from it.
And yea I agree we live in interesting times possibly more so then the 60s. History is a great tool for the young that want to learn
P.S. Sorry all but being a musician myself and making a living off of it (barely) few things irk me as much as assuming a whole generation of
musicians have no talent at all. And yes i play death metal *bangs head*
