Rock And Roll Essay,

Hey Hey, My My...My whole life, from age 14- 27 all I tried to do was become a famous rock musician. I've come to the conclusion, that will probably never happen, the internet, hurts so many small local bands from getting major labels to sign them, because there is no money in free illegal mp3 downloads. So it's all Pop , Crap and Disney stuff. The music industry is a business like any other. Why sign a local band and pay for them to record an album, when it's online for free. That is what is up with not many NEW ROCK bands or ARTISTS of any genera getting signed or getting any attention.
 As for Rock and roll it died when Kurt Cobain Died. Will there ever be another Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, even Axl Rose or Led Zeppelin ? No way, but yes way , In due time. Record companies would see the next Kurt, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin or Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses for example to difficult, and instead they put out albums called "Now That's What I Call Horrible Music, Volume 200"
 Whatever else is left or comes from rock and roll is gravy. Very few ROCK bands have any power in the music industry, Pearl Jam, The Foo Fighters, U2, that's about it...
 Kurt Cobain really is "The Man Who Sold The World" Or at least Rock And Roll. If he were alive I think he would HATE the state that ROCK N ROLL IS IN Right now...
 I do know that ROCK AND ROLL WILL NEVER DIE, there are so many Alternative Rock bands and Heavy Metal rock bands that are worth there merit , I feel as a Rock musician and fan, it feels like the early 90's again. Rock and Roll is about to become mainstream. I cannot tell you who the next Nirvana and Pearl Jam will be but I know in due time, rock will be back on top, as the old saying goes "hey hey, my my, rock and roll can never die, there is more to the picture than meets the eye, hey hey, my my"
