Here's the next 80's icon I'd like to see in concert (besides another Fixx show, the last one was fantastic)...

Does Billy Idol still put out new albums? I think pretty much all the tracks of his that I like are from the 80's.

Ok. Just asking since I’m constantly surprised by how many “legacy” artists are still putting out new albums well after their career peaks.


Update: ok I just looked it up and he released an album in 2014 which went nowhere in the US commercially speaking.

This is why I always check the current setlist and read reviews before purchasing concert tickets. Go heavy on new music (which I usually don't care for) or use stage for political ranting = no sale.

I even noticed this at the Rush concert I went to a couple of years ago for their "Clockwork Angels" tour. The first half of the concert was stuff from the new album and while the audience applauded you could tell it was a bit muted.

The second half of the concert was their classic 70's/80's stuff and the audience erupted.


The difference was night and day.

Absolutely, PM. This is one reason I really enjoy a good tribute act (I see ZoSo [Led Zeppelin] is playing the week after Bob Seger...excellent) as you know you're getting only a concentration of popular classics.

++++++++++

My summary of how the decades relate to the type of music I most enjoy...

1950's: Innovating.
1960's: Beginning to fine tune.
1970's: The apogee, along with popularity of home/car hi-fi.
1980's: Fun and romantic, video and electronics begin downfall.
1990's: Cynical and suicidal (enjoyable in small doses).
2000+: <don't know, tuned out>

I've bought less than 5 albums that were released after 2000. The vast majority of the music that I have purchased after 2000 has been movie and tv show soundtracks.

But that bad Scarface repeat clip doesn't negate (released 1986...my personal extreme)...

Just for sheets and giggles, try watching a few minutes of the American Music Awards next time it is on. Try even watching a few minutes of the Grammy's.

That must be like trying to watch CNN or MSNBC. I can stomach no more than about 5 minutes before I turn it off.

Music from the mid to late 90s onwards has suffered the same fate as the movie industry, in that it has become extremely formulaic and meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator. That's not just my opinion but I was told as much by a music industry talent scout.

Like disco, music from this time period does not age well and won't be very relevant down the line.

I still listen to some Disco. At least a good Disco song usually includes musicianship...

What has changed is what is known as "mainstream" music. You can still find music today that isn't geared for the lowest common denominator but that music falls under the "Indie" or "garage band" category. So it is indeed just like movies where you can find movies that don't appeal to the lowest common denominator but those are the "artsy independent" films that you won't find at the movie theater multi-plexes.

Thankfully today there are so many more music listening options. Growing up, FM radio was relied upon immensely. That's where you heard most new music, especially pre MTV.
I miss the rutual of buying a new album, the physical interaction.
But Satellite Radio and streaming services are so bloody convenient, and cheap.

Can't stand the screeching in 'modern' music or any other music.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I find that every genre of music from pop to country sounds almost exactly the same now. It has the same pitch, key, tone and tempo. The vocals are all auto tuned to sound the same. My neighbors young adult children sit out by their pool listening to a "young country" music station all day, and I swear it sounds like the same #%&*$# song over and over and over. It drives me nuts.

I blame this song for the downfall of the music industry.
