Is Rock Dead? Slash Thinks So
"I usually hate talking about the state of rock music, because there's nothing positive to say about it. The whole vibe of new, exciting hard rock bands seems non-existent right now," He said. "I always say that the heavy metal spirit is alive and well and holding its own, but the broader rock 'n' roll thing of bands like AC/DC or Guns N' Roses seems pretty slim. The rock 'n' roll spirit is extremely diminished.
"There's no shortage of bands out there trying to make it, but they're hard pressed to get a foot in the door. There's no movement on the streets." - more on this story
