    Default Pete Townshend Says Rock Isn’t Dead, But Guitar-Based Rock Is

    Pete Townshend argued that rock music wasn’t dead, but that guitar-based rock was, simply because virtuoso players had “exhausted the possibilities” of the instrument.

    Reaffirming why I love Pete Townshend. "If you spend an hour on Instagram or YouTube, you will quickly discover unknown people playing the guitar the way a great orchestral violinist like Yehudi Menuhin once might have played his instrument. These are virtuosos of the highest order. They can shred like Eddie Van Halen or play jazz like John McLaughlin. They've literally exhausted the possibilities of the guitar." Everybody knows it! It's hard to be impressed anymore!

    "I think I am connected today to about 20 or 30 young musicians and artists who I would not have found without Instagram, YouTube and BandCamp. This is living in the moment for me." Me, too! Pete is still in the now even though he's 74. You have to put some time in with YouTube and Bandcamp to find anything new and good. I love Bandcamp!

    (By the way, this should probably be in The Who thread.)

    That was an interesting read.

    His "take" on rock is interesting as well.
    Utilize. Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

    I love coffee and sarcasm.
