The old man talks about the state of music these days. You can probably guess how this is gonna go.
“The BEATLES. It was the 50 th anniversary of the Ed Sullivan show introducing the BEATLES to the good old USA . The next step of RocknRoll. I’m old enough to remember watching on my 2inch black and white Zenith.It was magic. They did an anniversary show the night after the boring Grammys and guess what kiddies, it was MAGIC. Songs with a melody, great harmony, simple tight musicians who were having a blast and they meant every word. The little staging the director did was not needed, just a band playing good old RnR. There were other acts that nailed it like Stevie Wonder, Joe Walsh and the new guy named Clark and an folkie from England. Keith Urban is also the real deal and the guy from the FooFighters can rock . After that total BULLSHIT. A bunch of posers, phonies making like their cool and soulful. Trying too fuckin hard, acting with nothing behind it. Who in Gods name let Kate Perry sing one of the most heartfelt love songs in rock history YESTERDAY. Shes so young and dumb she has no yesterdays. She didn’t mean a word of it and then she fucked with the melody. Are you kidding me. Guess who else performed like it was her night, not the BEATLES, Alysha Keys, I think is her name, singing LET IT BE like it was a bubble Gum pop song. Jesus did you READ THE LYRICS? She also thought to make the melody her own. Sure why not fuck with one of the greatest songwriters ,simple beautiful songs because you know better. I know, I know, I’m getting old . NO I am old and guess what Rock is almost dead because the phonies are KILLING IT. Eat me, stick with your stupid pop dance acts, hip this and rap on.”
Yeah, you saw all that coming, didn’t you? Well we all did, so don’t think you’re fucking special.
