It’s time we take the pulse of our respective generational experiences. If you don’t know the Dugout Chatter drill already, you are about to be asked some hard-hitting questions that require your gut answers. Then we all take it from there. This rare thematic edition should elicit some thought-provoking chatter. But enough of my yapping…
The Who’s “My Generation” or Generation X’s “Your Generation”?
What two rock ‘n roll artists represent the range from best to worst among the music of your generation, that is, your formative rock ‘n roll years?
Musically, did/do you feel attuned to what might typically be thought of as your generation, both in its time and since that time?
What was the most significant contribution your parents’/family’s generation made on your musical upbringing?
What positive aspect of your generation’s music do you feel has been lost in the critical profile that’s since developed around that era?
At what point in rock’s development would it have needed to die to avoid getting old?
If there was one musical value from your generation that you would hope will be passed down through future generations, what would it be?
I look forward to your responses.
