Re: Yes, Led Zeppelin, Genesis... why they matter to me.
I can't find a 'new' rock band worth listening to. I think the corporate 'Empire' (zep,beatles,floyd,stone,bowie,dylan,etcetcetc.) are stoppinganything good that might sell to an adult audience, and cut into profits.
Hence, Avenged Sevenfold etc. which nobody who grew up on the rock/blues crowd can quite justify purchasing, it targets a very specific age range. Not like there aren't lots good talented rock kids, they just kinda don't make it for one reason or another. Oh well.
I prefer Shatner to most of it.
