Would you want a physician helping you if they had lousy skills? Would you want someone repairing your home if they had no experience? Would you be willing to buy some kid’s crayon drawing for a million dollars? Of course not.
Then we need to fix America’s rock music. In ’91 the grunge bands destroyed musicianship as we know it. There’s not a single one of them that can play like Eddie Van Halen, Ace Frehley, Geroge Lynch, name your fave guitarist. Not a single one of them can sing like Steve Perry, Paul Stanley, or Brad Delp. Not one of them can drum like Alex Van Halen, John Bonham, or Vinnie Appice. Not a one of them can write or compose to save their lives.
An idiot I recently worked with said, “but don’t you think less is more?” Hell NO! I expect people to be good at what they do! I don’t want architects that create buildings that collapse, I don’t want a doctor that is unfamiliar with a scalpel, I won’t buy a crayon drawing for a million dollars, and NO ONE should consider grunge or post-grunge bands as “classic”. Cobain sucked. He and his peers killed American rock and American culture and we need to resurrect it. Get a hold of White Lion’s “Pride” and Boston’s first album and don’t come out of your room until you’ve learned from them.
