If you watched this video without knowing anything about music in 1967 you would think it was fucking awful. He didn't even bother to address any of the popular bands that were actually experimenting musically and sonically like The Who and the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream and Pink Floyd (all of which blow away the Beatles and the Stones). They were too loud, I guess.

Ten years later you have this:





I wonder if that's sophisticated enough for him.

Rock music is, and always has been, about making a band with your buddies and just rocking the fuck out. Rock music is fun. It's also sad, joyful, funny, depressing, uplifting, etc. But it's always fun, because it's making music with your friends. That element is missing in jazz and classical music, where you have the perfect ensemble of perfectly technical and perfectly trained musicians who have no chemistry together and no heart and no love of music but can do dazzling things with their instruments.

It's mind blowing what a couple of friends in high school can achieve when they have a couple instruments and something to say.
