    Do we Really Need Rock and Roll? Pleeeze

    In an effort to bring up post levels, so I can win the 100,000th post, I will ask some general non sensitive questions:

    Do we REALLY need ROCK and ROLL? I mean COME ON...ROck and roll???...is its REALLY and Art Form or just a bunch of noize created for commercial profiteering?

    Do you REALLY have to be talented to play rock and roll, or have training at any level, or is it all just a bunch of spin and publicist rhetoric?

    let's take it up the esoteric ladder...

    isn't all music just a bunch of "noize" created for commercial profiteering?

    Not me. I write music because I am perfect and am attaining high art by my practice. I believe myself superior to other folks in this regard...

    I don't even understand the "roll" part... why the food reference?

    Who needs rock and roll - or country music for that matter - when we have Polka!
