I have all but given up on Rock music today. It's all starting to sound the same. And there is nothing inspiring about any of it. Drop-D has been done to death. 7-Strings, really? Still? Well, there seems that there is a slight glimmer of hope headed our way. OF course, this is my opinion, but here is a short list of some bands that I think have been initiating a new Rock Sound. Zwan White Stripes Queens of the Stone Age And for those of you who just need to head bang Deftones (I know they have been around, but I like them) Cold Just thought I would share.

we seem to have somewhat different tastes. i dont know the first three you mentioned, but i have heard Deftones and Cold and dont like either. i like punk, and bands like Bush, Adema, Hoobastank, Tool, and many others. i got tired of Classic Rock a few years ago
Rock music is teen-age music -- that's what I always heard. I think it's pathetic that so many fellow baby-boomers still listen to it. Are they ever going to develop the maturity to move on to grown-up music? (You know, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, big band sound. ...) Harry Connick Jr. (from my town!) is the only one these days who's making music for grown-ups. I look in People magazine and wonder why there are so few stories about the _real_ celebrities. Most of the people they write about about were nobodies back in 1963.
[FS]: Are they ever going to develop the maturity to move on to grown-up music? (You know, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Peggy Lee, big band sound. ...) Well, I would have listed Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald before the ones you named, but I'm not going to be snooty about it. :roll: To each their own. I quite enjoy "classic" rock. And I have no idea who Gregg's talking about, but I'm willing to assume they might have some merit. [ July 15, 2003: Message edited by: Jim Yingst ]
