That'll probably happen before you finish your Fall journal. Just put Levitate in there and call it a day already.

I think we touched on this subject before but I don't remember you putting your money where your mouth is. So, let me know 5 great rock albums in the last 5 years please.

None of those are from fresh and new artists though.

That wasn't part of the original question. Don't go moving the goalpost on me now, I gave you what you asked for.

Rock is only alive and well if fresh new artists are pumping out great records?

Of course. If there's no new talent to carry the torch, then even if the rock mainstays keep churning out records (although I would say most of those bands are well past their prime), all we have to do is wait for them to die off. It's true, Mick Jagger is still alive, but do the Rolling stones keep rock and roll alive? Or is rock and roll in fact, enabling them to have some sort of unnatural hold on life?? Hmmm??

What do you consider 'new' talent to be? Ty Segall and Japandroids aren't 'new' enough for you?

You seriously think those two bands, just for example, are going to eventually (say in 10-15 years or something) stop making records and there will be no new talented bands making great rock albums?

Well Japandroids have been around for more than 15 years and are pushing 40. Ty has also been around for more than a decade.

By new and fresh artists I mean people in their early to mid 20s, which is normally when kids are rocking the hardest.

But anyway, sure, I think there will probably always be some rock bands around. Just not sure if they will be as exciting as ones we've already seen.
