Nothing ignorant about not liking new stuff, I don't like much new stuff myself...what is ignorant though is categorically stating that young musicians can't write good songs. emoticon

I think the word "certain" would have kept you from reading between the lines here, myself.

He was saying today's musicians can't write good songs and I was disagreeing with him. So unless I wrote something else that I've lost all memory of and can't see then I don't think there's anything else to cover.

Re: Saxon DVD review


If he had said "certain" bands today could never write etc...etc you may not have disagreed with him so it's really not your fault,is what I'm trying to say.
It only makes common sence that not all
musicians araound today can't write,just some of them.
He should have said "certain" or even "some".

Well he had the opportunity to say so and clarify that several times and he didn't.

Looks like a generalisation, sounds like a generalisation...must be a generalisation. emoticon

Re: Saxon DVD review


I'm a Jack Jones fan actually.emoticon Show me new songwriters as good as, say, Ian Anderson and I'll agree with you. Firstly, it's impossible of course because they won't have the same experiences that he's been through, secondly, in most cases they'll also have listened to very different types of music growing up. It all adds up to a very different kind of young rock songwriter we have today, most of whom will never have payed much attention to jazz or classical music, even folk or country. DP and the artists I mentioned all did as kids, I think Paicey will agree. Maybe you say it's a generalization, but I'm yet to see (or hear, rather) those magnificent talents we're supposed to have today, all I hear is monotony. Even 80s heavy metal had better melodies most of the time. Houston, we have a problem.

Re: Saxon DVD review


I'm not a big Saxon fan (Hell, I don't own any albums) but I saw them live a couple of years back, and they rocked the joint. There is nothing sad about good rock music being played loud and proud. Perhaps you have to be there to fully appreciate the experience.

For instance, standing a few feet away from David Coverdale howling about his latest shag was still an exhilerating experience. I can imagine the concert may seem a little daft to an outsider watching on telly though.
