Rock is Dead?

“Well now, everything dies, baby, that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty
And meet me tonight in Atlantic City”
Echoes of this old Springsteen song reverberate through the cave as I think about the death of Rock music .
Rock is Dead! -Has been heard plenty as one era fades to the next. “Hell, I have said it myself!” – When you say that the music is dead, you are really saying that the music that I once enjoyed is no longer relevant. And maybe “enjoyed” is not the right word…rock music connects on a deeper level than that. Music keeps flowing and changing. Rock has died many times but it keeps coming back. Each generation and each new sub-culture brings it back and retools it. I don’t think it changes and morphs smoothly to let everyone adjust… it stops breathing and gets shocked back to life. One group of fans has to let go in order for a new group to grab on to it again.
