Connections to the World, Row 2: New book dispels myth that rock 'n' roll is dead
As I was searching on the internet for a blog post about rock n' roll being "dead", I stumbled upon this: "New book dispels myth that rock 'n' roll is dead" , source: "http://news.siuc.edu/news/October05/101805pr5150.jsp". I thought this was an interesting article because it agrees with my opinion about rock n' roll to a fair extent. Personally, I wouldn't declare rock music "dead", but I think it was much better and more alive in the past compared to the present day.
The article that I had chose talks about the author's research while doing his book on the dispelling of the idea of the death of rock n' roll. The article discusses all of the controversy and mixed opinions about the book. The article also discusses how other people have reacted to the writing of this book and their opinions. The article also includes information about past books that were written revolving around the belief of rock n' roll being dead.
I agree with the author of this article to a fair extent. I don't think rock n roll is dead, but I do think that it was much better in the 70s, 80s, and 90s then it is today. I would be lying if I said that I hated all rock n'roll music from this decaded. This was an interesting article and gave me perspective on my topic/inquiry question.
