Most of us here are from the old classic rock generation, all getting old with our old rock and roll heroes. I never thought that it would happen, but it did. Is there any hope for the future of rock and roll or all the 2000's kids too busy playing video games? :)

First a classic from Woodstock about the younger generation...



Of course times have changed, or have they? :)

Maybe the younger generation is still listening...and learning here in 2016.

A band called Derailed...age 12-14 in 2016...



If you want to give more examples of our children and ? grandchildren carrying on the tradition of rock and roll as we remember it, in their own style of course, go ahead.

I don't know much about modern rock, but I do know that a lot of youngsters still love the classic rock. Heck, I started posting at this web address when I was 13. I'm almost 27 now and we have new 13 year old classic rock fans on here.

You're almost 27? Time flies.

Oops! Actually I'm almost 28. I already am 27. Flubbed it up because I couldn't decide if I wanted to say "I'm 27" or "I'm almost 28" since my birthday is close.

But at least I was close to the right age, this time. Often I'll forget and think I'm still 25! :woot:

Saying goodbye with a cool performance by younger people more talented than me...and most of us.



Come together!

This kid is much cooler than Justin Bieber...

Nothing Else Matters (cover) - Marco Kappel



Okay, that's all folks!

I'll add one last video. Jon Bon Jovi back in 2013 inviting Marco Kappel on stage to sing in a concert in Germany (Marco is a local German talent). This is a classic rock and roll moment...

How many of us were invited up on stage at age 11 at a major rock concert and ended up singing lead vocal on a big hit? None of us, but Marco did...

Wanted Dead or Alive - Bon Jovi

Well, maybe one more :)

This is a cool jam from Tracii Gun's 50th Birthday Bash at the Whisky in L.A. where he invited 12 y/o drummer Jagger Alexander from Australia to play onstage. Jagger (named after Mick Jagger) is a future star with all the confidence in the world. His drumming hero is Keith Moon, enough said!

Just watch...



:cheers2

This is a video of Jagger on the drums from 2013 that I always liked...

I think rock and classic rock will live on....

This little girl has been at it since she was 6 years old:

Zoe Thomson at 7....Sweet Child O Mine


Zoe Thomson doing Steve Vai



She now has a band TMB (the mini band) doing live shows all over the continent.....here they were guests with Metallica at the 2015 Reading Festival.
