retro-quotes: a series of germane remarks, by others, plucked from all over the place, and from all over the time - #28
"Rock is basically adolescent music, reflecting the rhythms, concerns and aspirations of a very specialized age group. It can't grow up--when it does, it turns into something else which may be just as valid but it still very different from the original. Personally I believe that real rock'n'roll may be on the way out."
--Lester Bangs, "Of Pop and Pies and Fun", Creem, December 1970
