I've been a Beatle's fan for about 40 years now, and I don't see that fading any time soon. But a lot of the music from the 60s and 70s was crap. As is a lot of the music today. Or from 1945. Or any other era of music.

That's the deal. There's a lot of pop out there, a lot of one-hit wonders (who occasionally win awards - Milli Vanilli, anyone?), but every now and then a band comes along that makes every one sit up and take notice. In the 60s it was the Beatles.

Nowadays? Well, I'm a little biased, but my current obsession (Green Day) fills that role for me.

Whether you agree with that assessment or not, the point is that the good stuff stands out precisely because there is so much crap being published.

BTW, I note that there's an album of covers of John's music coming out in May to benefit Amnesty International. Green Day is covering Working Class Hero. My inner fangirl is awash with squee!

Exactly, there's always the good, the bad and the ugly, right now there's a lot of plastic music out there, but there's also good music, I can't say that I hate nowadays music 'cause I'm a Linkin Park fan, and I do think their music is good, in their own way and style like all the artists.

It's all a matter of taste, that's why colours were made, that's why music is different,... each their own ^^

I'm definitely going to have to check that album out.
