Kids No Longer Want Rock Stars Says Alter Bridge Singer

(Classic Rock) Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy says the days of megastar rockers like David Lee Roth and Steven Tyler "are gone." Kennedy describes himself as a reluctant frontman and says he'd never want to be so famous that he couldn't go to the shops without being hounded. And he believes many up-and-coming young musicians feel the same way, meaning the fanfare that surrounded super-famous rockstars like Roth and Tyler back in the 1980s is unlikely to be repeated.

In an exclusive interview in the new issue of Classic Rock magazine, Kennedy says: "I'm a guitar player, that's how I see myself. The frontman thing...I think I've become accustomed to it now, but I still feel more comfortable if I have my guitar.

"Some people thrive on fame and love the way it feeds the ego. But I think that's very odd. To be so famous - which I'm definitely not - that you can't go to the grocery store is kind of unthinkable."

He continues: "The days of David Lee Roth and Steven Tyler I think are gone. It's partly down to the way the business is - kids don't want to be rock stars." Read more here.
