How, why did a new style of music come about, how did it all begin? (part 4)
So what is rock? Rock is a real art. And like every serious art, rock music raises all the issues of human existence, trying to solve them in its own way. This music is quite right and wonderfully conveys the spiritual state of youth, it quickly responds to all its problems. This is not only an entertainment genre. Is it youth music? Yes, of course, when rock began, it was youth music. But now … Already a generation of people has grown up listening to The Beatles, Black Sabbet, Deep Perple, Ice Zeppelin and many have remained attached to this music. So now it’s impossible to say that rock is a purely youth movement.
A reasonable question may arise, why in my essay I did not touch on Soviet rock music. The fact is, I believe that Soviet rock is a separate phenomenon in rock with its own characteristics and trends. It is impossible to briefly touch on this topic – it is for a separate work.
Around us we hear a lot of voices pro et contra rock. But for some reason, opponents of rock, however, like his fans, speak of him as a monolithic substance, while making the same mistake. So let’s look at rock multilaterally, not forgetting that this is art, so that the new generation of rockers do not have the same problems with their parents that Di Snyder had at one time: “Oh, you are so condescending, your feigned tolerance is endless.
We do not want anything, we do not want anything from you.
Your life is banal, you are like hackneyed nags,
Your life is dreary and you have squandered it.
If this is what you consider the best,
That “best” doesn’t suit us! ”
The second generation of fans should be easier to communicate with parents, they should understand them, but …
What happened, what will be, what has been done, will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
Ecclesiastes, chapter I verse 9.
