    The beat rig I had was a '68 fender jazz and a black face Fender Base Man amp with a directional 4-15 cabinet. I didn't actually own the guitar, it was the property of the shop I work for. But man, what dynamic combination!

    Every generation has had memorable bands/songs/lyrics/riffs, butt the the op is right that things have changed for the worse. As technology has progressed, innovation has come to a stand still.

    Les Paul was innovative on a musical and a technological level. Jimi Hendrix took his innovation and ran with it! Think what He and Randy Rhoads would be doing today had they survived! And that brings me back to Dime Bag Daryl. He could make a six string do things that should be impossible! Zakk Wylde has proven to be an extraordinary talent but he is one of few these days

    Hey, I'm definitely "the younger crowd" and I can see what you mean. My CD case (yeah, I said CDs, 'cause MP3s suck) is filled with The Doors, Sabbath, Dire Straights (I like the trumpet playin' bands...) Van Halen, Def Leppard, oodles of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and a whole lotta other similar stuff.

    At the same time, while musical talent is to be admired and respected; Music always was, and always will be about the way it makes you FEEL, and I think it speaks to the progression of society that the youth always choose to feel different than the generations before.

    You're probably right. Who are the great bands of today that make awesome music and will be remembered for the next 30-40 years?

    Same thing that happened to popular music from times before those...people grow older & the new generation sets the standards.

    Have a lot of vinyl myself and bought a CD recorder in order to transfer them to CDs and save the records. I go to a lot of garage sales and some flea markets and some times get lucky in finding good music. As far as the new stuff I listen to very little of it except Bluegrass like you said about the only original music left. On a side note the coast-to-coast motorcycle ride DO IT; back in 1980 I took 35 days leave and rode from California to Virginia down to Florida and back to California. Heading east it tried to stay on US 50 as much as I could since it parallels the Pony Express Trail, would love to do the ride again.

    I have a lot of vinyl as well (1K+). I finally bought a decent turntable with a USB interface and have gradually been digitizing the rare stuff. It's so time consuming, it's just been easier to buy most of the available stuff again. But it never sounds the same....

    There are still some great bands out there. You just need to dig a little deeper in the world of instant gratification.

    Mumford and sons ( I will bet a coke you can't listen to this song twice in a row without it catching you.):





    These guys are pretty popular:

    Anyone else notice it coincides with the decline of the actual "manly men" who had leading roles in popular movies, to the pansies we have today?

    In "the day", there was Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hendrix, the Allman Brothers, Led Zepplin, ZZ Top, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and many others. This coincides with actors in popular movies like Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Charles Bronson, and Steeve Mcqueen.

    Now we have Justin Bieber, Boy Bands, Pop country, and all sorts of "touchy-feely" stuff, most of which requires very little musical talent. And leading men along the lines are all along the same lines, "touchy-feely", whiny, talentless hacks.

    Just an observation of mine. Maybe it has to do with some sort of cultural shift during which it became cool for men to pluck their eyebrows, and get mani-pedis.

    Vinyl compares to CD's the same way. Get a great turntable, clean vinyl's, a great receiver and speakers, and you'll hear music you never have heard before.
