I saw this quote in the weekly mailing from Rock’s Backpages (a review to follow soon) and I thought it appropriate to put things into a bit of perspective:
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
”Rock music is no longer about being a rebel. It is a product being sold by huge companies. If you want to be a rebel, don’t be a rock musician -be a human rights campaigner or something.”
JEAN-BENOIT DUNCKEL, Air
Now, despite the fact that The Rock and Roll Report concentrates on the type of rock and roll that is anything but product put out by record labels that are anything but big business, it’s a good quote to think about don’t you agree?
