I am 50 years old.
Wait!!! ........... ok, I can see letting go of the grunge but not all of the rest .... and I’m 56...
I have decided to say goodbye to everything metal, punk and grunge. That music just doesn't move me any longer.
The focus is 100% on late sixties and early seventies style bluesy and jazzy rock , music that always makes me happy and works well in a pub.
But then again my concept of”metal” may be different than most- after all, the first time I ever saw the term “heavy metal” it was used to describe Aerosmith in a 1977 issue of either Hit Parader or Circus magazine.Funny enough I own a couple hundred cd's I never listen to anymore. I never thought this would happen, but it did. I have also been venturing more into classical music lately. I stopped visiting metal-ish concerts as the ampless bands with their perfect digital sound (f*ck kempers!) sound way too much like their albums. I find this boring and destroying the "live band" feel concerts used to have.
Now I just cba to get out of the house for gigs like that.
Small club/pub gigs like the one of Eric Gales and TM Stevens I posted are just so much more special I decided more modern "perfect" types of music is just not worth listening to.
