It's not that we're old; today's music really does suck.

    damn, that's what my dad said in 1954 watching elvis!

    basically, your era's music applies to you.

    play music!

    The researcher’s conclusion that ‘the 69s-90s were a special time for music’’ is not terribly scientific.
    regardless, teenagers will make that call.

    i agree with steve jones of the clash the seventies probably was your peak of music. that was the last of people actually playing, However those days are gone but the beatles stones who and dylan will never die. like i said in the end the music will come back.

    I'm not sure what, specifically, makes the Ed Sheerhan song you selected, "bad". It's very hooky, very repetitive. In other words, it's pop.

    I'll give him props-- he is able to fill entire stadiums with just him, a mic, and a guitar on stage. He started busking on the street and now he busks to over 50,000 people at a time.

    The 80s had a huge ton of great music/bands. It didn't end in the 70s.
    I'm sure someone will say the same thing abut the 90s.

    I'll give that a pass because it's Jimmy Webb. Not his best tune, but pretty standard stuff for pop music of the time.

    There’s good new music out there right now...but most of it isn’t mainstream.

    I was born in ‘70, and mine was the last generation of radio stations that would play a song from the 40’s, then 70’s (new at the time), then 50’s, then 60’s and then whatever. They’d touch different generations, different styles and genres.

    I didn’t care that Chuck Berry was rock & roll and Waylon’s Jennings wasn’t—because we listened to everything, as long as it was good...

    Stay away from mainstream radio and dig deep. There’s good stuff out there.

    Yep. People complaining there's no good music these days are just too lazy to look/listen, and/or too taken aback by unfamiliar culture stylistic differences to give things a chance

    I agree that awards shows aren’t very good. Browsing Spotify is my way to find music.

    Only he doesn't play it any more. I've seen him four times in the past two years and he hasn't touched a guitar. He leaves that work to the ever-capable Charlie Sexton.

    In other words, too set in their ways to even want to find anything new and good.
    In other other words, too old :)

    True enough despite all of the over-miked drums and compression in recordings.... :rolleyes:

    I listen to very little Classic Rock nowadays. Most of it was 'of my time' and I can play a good chunk of it from sheer memory, but I don't go out of my way to listen to it at all. I prefer a lot of 90s music and a select few modern bands. I just find newer stuff more interesting.
