Ok folks. I need help.

I understand that rock these days has changed. My ear and heart are still begging for the sounds of my youth - '70-'80s era but my brain is craving what's current and new.

I feel moss growing on my aged rump. A stone no longer rolling...

Who should I be listening to today? 2022?

Absolutely nowt worth listening to..... (for anyone not a Brit, "nowt" is slang for nothing)

Or have a read of this. Who knows, you might find something you'd enjoy.

I wish this forum had a "block user" feature. Possibly I'm not the only one......

Thanks Draco- I'll take a look at the link.

While "classic rock" is becoming a niche there is some new stuff happening. Great Van Fleet isn't totally new, but recent and some of it is not too bad. A US group named Dirty Honey has a good sound. We'll see where they go.

Anyway. Hope springs eternal. Rock isn't dead yet.

Draco - just checked out that link. Thanks for the lead because I've never heard of any of them. Definitely not a path I would have found for myself. Interesting. I'll let you know how it goes. Any personal suggestions from the list?

*edit After further listening, I can't recommend any on the list.... Pretty much all seemed of limited interest: two or three songs, then I'd lost interest. Some reasonably good guitar riffs here and there, though.

I can't honestly say there's anything "new" about any of the groups mentioned, but is "new" even possible???

The Kerrang website is always worth visiting for a read.

Still looking but I've found some good stuff:

1. Dirty Honey: "Rolling 7's". https://youtu.be/42rmUlDiQDI

and "When I'm gone". https://youtu.be/I8ygfX0BavM

I think they're based in California. Good stuff.

2. Crobot: "Better Times". https://youtu.be/kutQNy8dLBQ

And "Under a Pale Horse". https://youtu.be/xYfaWDXikYY

I believe these guys are from somewhere in Pennsylvania. They just opened a show for another band here in Memphis and brought the f&$king house down.

I'm sure there's more. I'll keep looking. I love my old stuff but I crave the new.

Absolutely a valid question matonanjin2.

While I like almost anything (almost :P), I'm just not loving much of what I hear coming through the major commercial channels so I'm on a hunt to see if rock, as I know it, is dying.

Gotta use the brain to search because my heart and ears are no better at searching than my crotch has historically proven to be.

Cool thing is - and I live in Memphis, TN - the music (new stuff) I'm hearing around town is pretty damn good. Listen to the kids jamming and you'll hear solid stuff. The music business doesn't hear much of it yet but if you listen it's there.

I'm still looking.

Thanks for the reminder.
