    Highway Tune is quintessential GVF, in my opinion. Either that, or Safari Song. Or maybe Black Smoke Rising.

    When the Curtain Falls is the current single, and we hear it a few times a day. I like it, yet Highway Tune came on today and yesterday, and I got pumped up!

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    This is the best newer band I’m jamming to.

    Spafford

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    Pretty cool tunes. Hadn't heard Lake Street Drive before. Love the Struts and Strypes.

    But for rock to not be "dead", it's going to require a new style we haven't heard before. That's what kept rock alive all those decades.
    Elvis may have had a touch of Bing Crosby here and there, but he was doing something no one had heard before.
    The Beatles may have had the Scottie Moore guitar style and Everly Brothers vocals, but they took it in a whole new direction.
    Led Zep was doing something not heard before.
    Van Halen had not been heard before.
    U2 was new.
    Metallica was new.
    Nirvana was new.

    All along the way there were new things we hadn't heard before coming at us all the time. No one sounded like Boston before they showed up. The Police. The Cars. Alice in Chains.
    Even No Doubt was something new for one album at least.

    The 60s didn't sound like the 50s, the 70s didn't sound like the 60s, the 80s didn't sound like the 70s, the 90s didn't sound like the 80s.

    As good as these songs are, I can't help noticing it sounds like music from the past. Even Baby Metal sounds like Dream Theater with a better singer (yeah...I said it! lol...). We know who GVF sounds like of course.

    Everyone seems to be going back to the well of the past for their equipment and styles. Really bringing back memories of the Stray Cats. Sure they showed up and Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis were still playing gigs in the 80s, but that didn't mean the 50s was "not dead". What kept rock alive during that time was that the 80s was doing something new that got kids excited.

    Many of us remember that rock was "dying" in the late 70s. (that was the rumor anyway) Lots of bands were up there with a Les Paul like some of these bands. Then a kid showed up who had built his own guitar and then it was time for everyone to start playing a Strat style guitar with a humbucker and play it in a whole new way. New life was injected into the genre.

    When's the last time you heard a rock band doing something you've never heard before? I'm struggling to think of one. Surely someone is new and I'm just missing it.
