  2. Don’t mean to sound redundant ‘ but these very few comments just proves what I’ve been saying ‘ that nobody over 40 or 50 which I assume most people who visit this site are gives a shit about today’s modern music scene . We want classic rock ! Especially from the seventies. Sixties rock is also great. Compare the number of comments of a modern show to say a Clapton or Who / Hendrix and its obvious. Classic rock rules .

  3. Hell even KC and the sunshine band is better than these modern groups .

  4. Derrick. I’m 57 years old, have been on this site for years, and while I do indeed enjoy the music of my youth and am thrilled to find some new relic on BigO, I also enjoy lots of music that is new to me - it’s a great place to learn. Music from younger artists, music from other countries, all sorts of great shit on here I’m not familiar with. Open your ears, buddy…..

  5. Derrick- these nuts are redundant on your chin.

    These nuts rule on your chin.

    These nuts on your chin are better for you than sunshine.

  6. Personally I’m grateful for this music and it keeps me in touch with younger performers and groups. In the case of Alicia Keys, though, who has recorded for 15 years, “younger” is a relative term.

  7. Thanks for this big o, sounds great! Its simple, if you don’t want to be redundant Derrick than stop saying the same krap over and over. I’m 54 and don’t agree with you at all so stop acting like you speak for anyone here but yourself-stop boring everyone and go listen to free bird or smoke on the water.

  8. Interesting that the comments come after I make a statement about today’s music . I guess people get defensive, not wanting to believe that great rock music is dead. . Even Robert Plant said as much in a recent interview.

    By Derrick on Dec 20, 2017

  9. And yes I’d rather listen to Smoke on the water or free bird any day over most of today’s junk .

    By Derrick on Dec 20, 2017

  10. Derrick-this show has been up less than 24 hours you idiot

    By Alex Lettholn on Dec 20, 2017

  11. Let’s play nice folks . And least the dicksters aren’t coming around as much thes days ( knock on wood ) And yes I like some modern music myself ” but like Derrick says it’s not like it used to be . So I guess you can feel free to call me an idiot too.

  12. Derrick is Boom Boom Mancini.

    Rock on, Deekmeister

  13. Well what do you call someone who claims the lack of comments is indicative of the level of interest in a show that’s been posted for 1 day? Would you rather that I pretend its not just you making lots of typically negative comments again? And i’m positive you’ll resurrect the dick schtick at some point soon, you don’t have too much else to say.

  14. “Classic Rock”, through no fault of its own, is redundant because of its age. Years ago it Was challenging & exciting with a great beat. But, the mystery is out of That bag. As a music lover I can’t listen to only my Jimi boots Ad nauseam. (Though he’ll Always be #1 in my heart.) I welcome BigO recently posting The Roots, Erykah Badu, Run The Jewels, and now Alicia Keys. It keeps the site relevant. Today there IS great music - it’s just much harder to find. BigO, Keep on keeping on!

  15. It seems that Classic Rock music has become the go to soundtrack for TV commercials. I guess Classic Rock appeals to the advertisers demographics. Even thought he wasn’t the first when Pete Townshed licensed The Who’s music for TV shows and commercials it stared a trend and now it’s become the new norm. For the artist it’s a windfall because they make money with the music licensing and may even have the possibility of re-starting careers. Classic Rock may be the soundtrack for my generation but it makes me feel old!

  16. I’m sure this has already been said - but the rock (and music) market has fragmented - heavily.

    I’m reminded of this - back in the 90s I was part of the local punk/indie music scene here in Grand Rapids. Shows were usually packed - even for offbeat or unknown bands - because the number of live music choices were so small. On the other hand, when I went to visit my best friend in Chicago, there were so many clubs and shows going on, that anyone interested in alternative music could find the music of their choice. This underground music scene was so much larger and, by extension, fragmented compared to Grand Rapids.

    I look at the rise of the internet the same way. You - the consumer - can find music that -you- like and it’s a lot easier to ignore anything you don’t. It’s been great for finding new music, but finding those artists in the flood of information takes persistence!

  17. What’s wrong with new music on here? or Alicia for that matter? I have seen her live and she is a capable musician I can say that for sure. I mainly check here for all things Patti Smith but love to hear new stuff. I am over 40 for the record. Look at John Peel he championed new music right until the end.

    By Mr D on Dec 21, 2017

  18. I agree that many of the modern artists are crap, like Bieber and most other people who’s every song is “Such and Such, featuring someone else”..

    alicia keys is an extremely talented singer, pianist, writer, and I would compare her, vocally, to great souls singers like Gladys Knight.

    so thank you for this great post, BigO. and even if you post something that I do not like, there will be SOMEONE out there that either already likes that artist, or gives it a listen and enjoys that artist for the first time.
