It Never passes on, as past blogger composed it just appears that way when you get more seasoned, from time to time and enormous musical crew will break out, yet Rock music has and dependably will hide in the shadows.
We are defiantly not living in the "golden age" of Rock music anymore.
Though that is undoubtedly the case, great art forms never truly wain completely in popularity. I have noticed a profound renaissance of classic rock music Baignoire à porte, especially psychedelic rock music over the last couple of years.
I remember talking to an older guitar playing friend of mine who told me that even back in the 60's and 70's rock music (or "guitar music" as it was also known) was always on the outskirts of mainstream pop culture.
He said that people get worried because rock music doesn't seem to be all over commercial airwaves or as well known and popular as commercial music, but he said that it never really was, and that was part of its appeal.
Rock music was what the "switched on" crowd listened to, it had a cult following and was the kind of thing that your parents, teachers and mainstream pop culture hated.
People realise this and falsely presume rock music to be "dead" when in reality this couldn't make it more ALIVE!
And this has been going on for as long as rock music has existed.
I remember reading The Beatles first demo recording was rejected by a record company because "guitar bands are on the way out", as well as the members of AC/DC saying that people doubted they would get anywhere because guitar music was waining in popularity.
Rock music will always remain possibly the most important form of music of the 20th century because of the profound musical influence it has had on the way that songs are written and instruments are played (not to mention the equipment and recording techniques it helped to create).
And (at the risk of sounding hippy dippy) it is a spirit just as much as it is a musical genre.
Any form of music can be executed and performed with the energy and spirit of rock n roll
I've written a couple of blog posts myself about similar subjects, I would love to get your opinion on them
