-Ronnie James Dio
- John Lennon
Although Lennon was referencing The Beatles epic popularity I think there is hidden wisdom in his statement. This is not an argument against creativity or genre mixing. I love that stuff. Nor am I suggesting that every new band needs to create its own completely new genre. I am simply saying that we don’t like change, and this is verging on a generational psychosis. It feels like we are clinging to the term Rock and Roll like a safety blanket or the memory of a home cooked meal. We simply need a better way to talk about current music.
