Hahahahaha...the endless debate continues.
Heres my view:
Rock music will never suceed unless each album comes with a beer ....hahaha.
The reason is pretty simple, its not easy to get into!. People who relate to Bhangra/Pop/HipHop/whatever do so cuz its easier to get into.
The rock movement which started in the 60s was not about the music...it was about the whole change in lifestyle, new freedom ..a black man entertaining a crowd oif white people etc.
Somehow i dont think such a movement will ever happen in India..y shud it happen after all
A few Pointers:
Id say one of the major reasons for the negative view against Rock music in India is the image projected.
All u rock fans, throw off ur earrings ,ur attitude and ur potty mouth...thatll be a much better step towards promoting the 'scene' than anything else. Chanting MCMC doesnt make u cool.So doesnt looking 'dangerous'(read constipated).
"Mister Fripp, your music is quite different than everything else out there. In one word, how would you describe it?"
