This seems to me a generally positive thing - having a healthy appreciation for the likes of the Rolling Stones and Beatles seems a much more sensible approach than automatically dismissing it as Dad music if it expands musical horizons. But with this appreciation has been passed on a cynical and unhealthy notion that nothing produced nowadays can ever match the music of these glory days.
Thank you, Chris, for your truthful perception. I quoted what you had written not to comment, but to read it again, for comment feels superfluous. Now I'm going to follow Ted off thinking.
