It isn't better to burn out or fade away. Gene Simmons and other assorted millionaires can babble nonsense about the death of rock and roll, but Growing Old With Rock and Roll doesn't believe it for a second. We can talk about the fading cultural currency of three chords and The Truth, but the truth is that so long as someone still builds instruments, electricity is still available, and someone out there clamors to connect with people through music, rock and roll will continue to endure in all of its forms. It isn't better to burn out or fade away. It's better to stand and be counted.
Readers can count on this blog to review new album and EP releases from a wide swath of artists. Moreover, you can take our recommendations as gospel truth - this is a no puffery zone.
