Great posts, all! I do agree with Liam, today's kids eat up everything that the record companies feed them. And for the most part, it's crap! Although just a couple of weeks ago, my mother's friend brought her 7-year-old grandson (visiting from NY) to my house to see my Beatles stuff - because the kid was supposedly a huge Beatles and Paul McCartney fan. I laughed... at first! The litter bugger knew literally more than I did about the Beatles! He told me things that I didn't know, that I later checked in books and found true! He went to a Macca show in April with his dad and remembered the whole set list! I played some Beatles interviews for him that I have on CDs, and he would immediately tell which voice belonged to John, or Paul, or George, or Ringo! I still can't get over it. That tells me that, no matter what, there will be people in every generation who woould dig the true talent of the Beatles. Long after the clowns like Korn, and the likes of that, are forgotten (which will happen very soon anyway.)
Totaly agreement, constv! I'm impressed with this kid! Put him in charge of the record companies, he'll soon whip 'em into shape!
