    Also I really like the album Lazaretto by Jack White.
    I listened to these and some others. I wonder if Simmons would consider some of these rock music? He might have some very narrow views on that subject.

    Yeah, maybe. But if that's the case, what does he expect? Everyone to just make the same sounding rock music for 50 years?

    I don't doubt that he knows more about the recording industry than I do, but I doubt he listens to much new rock music.

    The closest thing to mainstream rock we have are all those bands that sound like The Black Keys (including the Black Keys).

    It's like I said earlier: define rock music. Everyone has their own ideas of what rock is. Is it about having a "guitar sound"? Is it about having a "fuck you" attitude? Or is it just a generic term to separate "rock bands" from "pop acts"?

    And what's so good about the "rock" label anyway? Why does it matter if "rock" (whatever it is) is dead, if great music is still being written under other labels?

    I haven't heard any great rock in this thread. And no, it's not always about the "fuck you" attitude, unless its punk rock.

    If it WAS about the "fuck you" attitude, artists like Madonna and Avril Lavigne (maybe even Miley Cyrus) would be rock music.

    In fact they all do "guitar music" too (Avril often better than most "rock" acts).

    So what is your definition of rock?

    Most if not all 'old people' who like rock prefer to keep up with the times. My ex-boss (ESTJ) did not do so, his mind is stuck back in the 1960s. His favorite group is still the Rolling Stones. But then again, all he watches on TV are sports and retro-television - 1960s TV shows. That, however, makes him a rather odd 'old person.' For example, I asked my brother, who is 8.5 years older than me, if he still likes old rock, and he stated that he doesn't like that "old junk" and that he prefers to keep up with the latest in rock music.
