Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.
Why should GenY get the Chili Peppers and Nirvana? Aren't they more of a GenX phenomona?
Also, I can't come up with a better comparison for the Red Hot Chili Peppers than The Beatles. I really wish I could, but I can't. Their longevity aside, their influence on the writing and playing of hard rock, pop rock and just pop music in general is amazing. While never sounding "the same" they have their own sound. Many people have borrowed parts of the Chili Pepper vibe, but nobody has sounded like them. In many ways they are the best parts of Zep and The Beatles without the breaking up and dying. In other ways, I prefer Zep and The Beatles. All three are timeless and classic.
This is all kind of a revelation to me, I am not the biggest fan the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
What if this is as good as it gets?
