Roger, please … how do you REALLY feel?
According to Mr. Daltrey, rock, like Monty Python‘s parrot, is just plain dead. Daltrey told hacks at The Times of London that the genre for which he’s been a standard-bearer for years (and lots of them) has “reached a dead end.”
What is the future, then? Why, rap, of course.
“The sadness for me is that rock has reached a dead end. The only people saying things that matter are the rappers, and most pop is meaningless and forgettable. You watch these people and you can’t remember a bloody thing.”
Well. That’s it, then. Good night. Last one out, please turn out the lights.
