I believe another cause of the fall of rock and roll is the lack of solid rock and roll journalism. In the early 70's you had your pick of magazines (Cream, Circus, Rolling Stone) that were all about the music and the artists. Now it takes 30 pages of advertising in the Rolling Stone just to get to the 1st article. This Minnesota farm boy would have had a tough time in the 70's without guys like Lester Bangs and Dave Marsh writing about and turning me on to everything from the Stones, Zep, Iggy Pop, Cheap Trick, Springsteen to Pure Prairie League and Willie Nelson. The old style gonzo journalists wrote about every genre in a way that made you want to run out and get the album.

I grew up in the 60's and 70's and probably opened one of those magazines maybe once.

I strongly believe that there IS LOTS of great rock. I've bought a couple hundred albums in the last few years...almost all new music. If you are looking for it on the top rock station in your area chances are you wont find much of it. I find all my music on amazon. Most of my music are on independent labels. From Arcade Fire, to The Decemberists, Mumford and Sons, Arctic Monkeys, The xx, We Were Promised Jet Packs, Frightened Rabbit.... there is so much good music out there. I think if you aren't finding it you aren't looking in the right places.
