    do u think , ROCK is Dead ??....Rock musik ruled the era
    1960s to 1990`s......
    remember the greatest bands of 70`s n 80`s classic rock......
    Led Zeppelin , ac/dc, Pink floyd, Metallica , iron maiden , G n R ,U2, Nirvana, Beatles, Van halen,Sabbath,Megadeth, Dire straits .....they r still ruling :rule:

    but now rock is almost dead...Alt,Punk,Hip hop,Rap ,dance musik has dominated it now.. :eek::
    although ther r many Good bands now like Audioslave,foo fighters,LP, coldplay,
    Velvet revolvers.......
    but wait , they hav even No chance of coming upto level of 70,80`s bands
    they simply cant even compete them...n Modern rock musik sux.

    wut do u think ? speak out .

    I don't think that Rock is the greatest genre.

    Rock Music suxxx ...

    it is being dominated by losers and drug addicts ... and people having no qualms about doing anything wrong (or right)
    b.t.w. same goes for rap and hip-hop music ...

    The world is full of people like that...why point out only one genre?

    I would say rock is not dead but evolving. There have been a lot of experimentation and added influences from other genres namely hip/hop and similar stuff. Also since every new band is coming out with a different style new genres are being created which makes it difficult to classify each and every band.
    We cant blame modern rock for anything, there are some bands, modern rock bands, who play good music. Moreover the new sound is appreciated by people all over so obviously the upcoming bands are expected to try some of the new stuff out there.

    coz rock harbours majority of those ppl ...
    not other genres ...
    definitly not classical n baroque genres ... :p:
    and a few in the mainstream pop genre
    very few in indi pop genre double :p:

    temme if i am wrong
    the whole grunge music is based on misery frustration wasted lives etc ...

    Why do you even expect rock music to retain the sound it did in the 70's/80s/90s?

    Music has always been an expression of art which has reflected current political and social trends (blues came up during the slave era, jazz during the industrial period, rock during the hippy era, hip-hop during the empowerment) so it is quite natural that our music will reflect current trends and not what happened 50 years ago. Of course, we are lucky enough to have the music recorded but it is stupid to expect an era to stop progressing just because we have not the will to move on.

    Amongst modern rock players, Scott Henderson is one of my favourites...check him out sometime.

    @bjr--scott henderson is awesome..
    do u have tribal techs stuff with ya?
  14. bjr

    bjr Lady of the Evening

    er....they are still there, trust me. Only not nearly as famous as before since the new era has been grossly unfair to them.

    @dharmata: no, I first heard 'em at a friends place who, typically, did not have a CD writer. I'm now downloading his stuff off the net as we speak....but his stuff is always queued on P2P networks :mad:

    I first heard of him from my guitar teacher....I think he used to play with Chick Corea(another tower of the slightly modern style)

    ahh..dude..he has played with so many great musicians..

    his band tribal tech is insane..

    he has collaborated with vicotor wooten and guys like steve smith too.

    i have his jazz-fusion improvisation instructional video..its awesome.
    he is a great blues player too...

    one of my friend is a scott henderson fanatic..and he even has started talkin and playin like henderson now..heh.

    That means they just copy. Or mix the style of multiple bands.

    do you think people whogrew up on beatles and rolling stomes instantly approved of kiss and led zeppelin
    people still dont approve of pink floyd
    rock music is like good wine
    it gets better as it gets old
    so lets wait and see what becomes a classic

    I disagree. How many of us listen to the Duke Ellingtons of the 20's or the Frank Sinatras or Stan Getz(who wrote one of the most famous Bossa Nova song of all time).

    And people who do not approve of Floyd by now probably never will.
