Lol. I think we are agreeing that the old is the old and the new is the new. Where we possibly disagree is about our ability to use that awareness. Maybe that's a different discussion.
Anyone born from the 1950s onwards has grown up with 'rock & roll'. I still jump around at a Stiff Little Fingers gig. If that means I'm impersonating a teenager, so be it. BTW there are a lot of teenagers jumping around at Fingers gigs (and other punk gigs), and judging by their enthusiasm, and that they know and sing all the words, I don't think it's because they've been dragged there against their will by old fogeys.
I wouldn't take your posts personally, DQ. I think the value in your posts comes from their detachment from the personal. I respect that clarity of thinking.
