I tend to agree.
I agree with Plant to a large extent, but lord the writing in that article was pitiful. Alison Krauss (50) deserves a lot more than to be called a 'fresh young face' for Plant to work with... maybe the writer could've investigated her work just a tad more so that he could've characterized her as the seasoned artist she is... I've been following her since 1990 (delaware valley bluegrass festival)
these internet pieces are all "content" but no content. just rehashing someone else's internet piece that rehashes someone else's ... ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
It's definitely true about The Rolling Stones. Imagine in forty years time, it'll just be poor old Keith playing alone on that stage.
On a different note...old Bob Log's ( my nickname for Plant) head is extraordinarily large. Not his ego...the physical size of his head.
^ And he should know...
It really depends. Some rock bands (like Zeppelin) reinvented themselves from album to album, others froze in the mid '70s and have been dressing the same cliches in new equipment ever since.
it does seem pretty gross to tell older musicians they have to quit. i mean no one wants to see 30 year olds sing teenybopper romances, let alone 75 year olds, but you can grow and stay relevant as long as you continue to deal with the actual world you live in... rock and roll has always been the shallow end of the pool, but even still, you can sing songs with a backbeat that reckon with reality up until you croak. Dylan, as mentioned. Marianne Faithfull. Lou Reed. Paul Weller. Lucinda Williams. Wolf. Leonard Cohen. Bowie. even Jagger rises to it once in a while (his vocal on Commit a Crime at the White House was some of his best singing to date, imo)
Dunno about his point, but I have definitely noticed that a lot of working rockers you see look like the same people you see at the geriatric clinic.
Sort of like the white-haired types who played jazz when I was a youngster.
To everything, alas, there is but a season.
Agreed, for the most part.
Jagger is so aware now. I think that makes him better than that kid I saw on Ed Sullivan.
And don't get me started on Paul Weller.
His last album is the best thing I've heard in years.
He's a feckin' treasure.
"could care less" Poor writing.
Artists don't just suddenly quit creating.
I guess I see his point.
But listeners sometimes stop listening.
Mick says he disagrees…
I can see both sides. Some of these old rockers are hard to watch, I often wonder why they're still at it. For many of them it can't be the money. That said, they must love doing it, more power to 'em. I keep waiting for one of them to actually die on stage. Nothing more rock and roll than that.
I think many of us are of a generation and the music of that generation resonates with us.
If the stones can fill arenas, more power to them.
Eventually we will all be gone and someone else will be discussing poorly written internet articles.
when i included him in my list, i was thinking exactly of that.
it happens, but 47 is too young.
They will have to pry my guitar from my cold dead hands....
No seriously. I suspect I will die with my guitar in hand.
