There's nothing generational about it. I listen to the Beatles (who doesn't) 
but I also follow a whole suite of modern music. John Peel was one of my idols 
(I got a read out on his show once, when I was in Melbourne) and he passed away 
still supporting up and coming music in his 60s. As a consequence of him, my 
collection contains various roots music, even some country influences...though 
I do draw the line somewhere. Some of my friends who I go to gigs with are 15 
years my senior and still finding new music for me to listen to. Music is music 
and always will be ... some is to ones taste, some is not. It's a very personal 
thing. I just think it's nice to hear a band honestly influenced by the 
environment when you consider that, in centuries past, it was almost always 
this way. Our modern world is so urban in its thinking these days that art has 
become detached, like life, from what is around us.
