Jeff's thoughts in the previous thread:
Unlike most other bands, The Beatles were able to create a library of music that is still relevant today.Got me wondering. I actually disagree with this statement. They seem less relelvant today to me. I can certainly still hear influences, like on Elliott Smith. I'm interested in hearing other examples of current artists. (I know I'm missing alot, as I am not at all current!)
Actually, now that I think of it, they continue to sell very well. But it is difficult to decide from this whether there is a new generation listening though.
Any other thoughts? I mean, there are among the most influential bands around or ever. But are they still relevant?
To me, they seem less relevant to today's listener. But they will always be relevant to me... even if I don't listen to them as often. I have very fond memories of discovering each album, positive feelings that I hope other people will experience as well.
