    i have recently started to feel very old, reason being, that i used to find myself on top of new music, exciting music, cutting edge music etc. now i have been exposed by younger people as a has been. recently i was put on to the band "at the drive in". someone at my work put me on to them knowing i was a big fugazi fan, and by god, if at the drive in isnt the greatest thing ever(to me right now) hail to my new favorite band. but i felt really old when i found out how long they have been doing their thing. so all you youngins and to the retiries, whats been goin on in your musical world, if youd be kind enough to share with a has been.

    Of course you need to listen to more thn mainstream shit. Just go out and see a lot of local bands. I prefer more angry hardcore music myself, but I am open to a lot of shit.

    One more:
    Joe Bonamassa (an awsome blues guitarist and vocalist)

    ok, just for clarity, instead of just making lists, lets try to at least explain what type of music genre the bands are, so us old farts know whats goin on. young whipersnappers

    well, we could be, but i doubt it. and i don't mean that in a too cool toot my own horn sort of way...
    the twin...ahh..you'll remember my ranting disappointment
    with the new cd....some nice bits, but..his spoiled brat genious schtick is really played and grating to me..also considering the climate of computer stuff going on, the untouchable genious margin is thinner than ever.....
    also....'alternative' music is not alternative in the sense that its 'breaking ground', or
    'new'....nor is it a vehicle to/for coolness, like its been portrayed in the mainstream.
    most 'alternative' music is garbage. in fact, any genre is 95% garbage, its the 5%
    of sincere ground breaking stuff that should be held up.
    not to dis you rage, but being 'on top of (alternative)' doesn't necessarily mean you're on top of the most recent developments.
