Perhaps, there is not a more controversial topic among metal heads, than whether or not the music we love is ‘dying’. The vitality of rock and roll is also a critical litmus for metal’s state. Nonetheless, opinions abound. Most of them from a keyboard or phone on social media. Adding to the argument of ‘is’ or ‘is not’, Peter Criss just took a side:
“Rock and Roll is over,” he said with conviction. He continued during the Hi Fi Way Interview, “I’ve been around since the day the Beatles were onstage. I’ve been around when music was Motown. I’ve been around, what’s going on today ain’t my cup of tea.”
Whether or not you respect Peter’s opinion, the fact of the matter is that his vote carries a bit more weight than most of ours do. I don’t know the definition of ‘over’ or ‘dying’ in the context of music, but it is difficult to argue his point.
