I have to say that today's rock is suffering from an important ingredient.....SOUL. When RUSH made a song I FELT it! Same with Hendrix, Zepplin, and countless others. But TODAY? I grew up on Hiphop, Soul, and R&B. so of course I expect more. But early 90's was hopeful but was soon over. Until the other day at the mall some young guy's approached me selling their CD. At first I thought it was rap--and I'm not even diggin rap at it's present state either. But they said it was ROCK...Skeptically I listened and was amazed to find it was more of a hybrid of rock vocals, guitar, and hiphop beats&basslines. Not really like linkin park because I always thought they were missing the bottom--and had too much screaming. It was it's own entity. So I bought one--Man--I had too So I promised them I would get on some new forums that I planned to join and help spread the word. Check out samples of their stuff at www.beatassassins.com PEACE.
