Exactly...on the post-album-play discussion group,
Fred Durst of limp biskit was one of the commentators.
Will people still remember him in 30 years? Or at
least as MANY people?
Look at the anti-war demonstrations recently. Many
college and high school kids attended, clad in the
same type of hippie garb as years gone by... there's
a cult following of 60s and 70s culture (including the
music of course) that today's youth love...
even if they were born after the breakup of the
Beatles, or even after the death of John Lennon.
