I’ll withdraw the superlative on Lennon if you do the same with the erroneous pejorative you threw at Paul.

Never. Paul is my 3rd fav Beatle.


He’s my 4th. I love the man and have now seen him play six times, but I feel quite certain he’s actually a bigger douche than John was.

A co-worker of mine is a pretty hardcore Pearl Jam fanboy and wanted me to ask if any Cubs season ticket holders got a seating chart for the Wrigley show this summer?

According to the data, the average man’s musical taste is developed between the ages of 13 and 16, while a woman’s takes shape between the ages of 11 and 14. Data also revealed that the early 20s are “half as influential” in determining adult musical tastes as their early teens. Radiohead’s “Creep,” for example, is the 164th most popular song among 38-year-old men—who would’ve been 13 when the song was released—while it’s not even in the top 300 for those born a decade earlier or later.

Yes that is probably true but it doesn't explain why some people like Sublime

Also, most people stop listening to new music at some point in their 20's. I've never understood getting to 27 or 28 years old and saying "Welp, that's enough music for me! Listening to the same 20 CD's I wore out in college is all I'll ever need again!". I can't get enough new music in my life, but I'm definitely in the minority

they do? i literally cannot think of one person that this applies to. maybe in their late 30's or 40's (think of my parents) but 20's? nah.

everyone i work with (mostly late 20's) and most of my friends (early- to mid-30's all listen to new music). you must just happen to know a lot of squares or something.

i know a handful of people who stopped listening to new music once they hit their 20s and it's frightening. you want to hold an intervention and tell them there's more to music that britny fox, collective soul and the flys.

Well there are a lot of people who simply don’t care about music (they listen to whatever is on), but there are also a lot of people who gravitate towards their favorite music from college.

I don't think it's as cut and dry as repeating the same 200 songs for the rest of the your life, but I think, at least for me, there's definitely been a drop off in my interest in newly released music. Some of that is just the cliche 'kids these days listen to crap music' that most people go through, but I think with streaming services and access to so much music, a lot of people like myself are able to continue exploring in the genre (and/or time period) that they like the best.

Well yeah i don’t turn on the pop top 40 FM station or whatever anymore. But i still appreciate new rap (likely stuff not on the radio. And also some new rock and other random stuff.)

I guess it just read, “welp. I’m 25 so I’m good on trying to find new music!” To be sure i have go-to’s (though many of those are from the past 5 years in my 30’s) but I don’t really know anyone that just stops pursuing new music that young. I think it’s maybe just semantics, though, in how I read it.

Yeah, probably just semantics on the word 'new'. I spent my 'formative' music years listening to pop punk and rock, and now that I'm 30 it's mostly southern rock/alt country. On any given day/week, I'd guess 75% of the music I listen to comes from bands that don't produce music anymore (Grateful Dead, REM, Allman Brothers, I guess Petty now) or who peaked a while ago (Stones). I'm still finding music that's new to me, but it's mostly music that came out a while ago. Only a handful of musicians/bands who like, I'll track their album releases.

THOSE are the kinds of musicians that Jones relied on throughout his career, so of course McCartney's playing is going to come across as pretty damn amateurish to someone like Jones.

That's not to say that the Beatles weren't able to maximize their comparatively limited musical ability to make great music.

There's something to be said for playing with feel. Was B.B. King a virtuoso? Not even close but I'd much rather listen to him than some shredder that can play 200 mph while sounding like a robot. I respect the hell out of the talent guys like that have but it's just musical masturbation to my ears. McCartney wrote some killer, groovy bass lines and for that reason he is widely regarded as a "great" bass player.

I don't care if The Big Bang Theory is widely regarded as a "great" comedy. It just ain't so.

Up through my 20s my pursuit of new music was relentless and I gobbled up everything I could get my hands on and I ripped all my cds and carried about 30 gb worth of my favorite stuff everywhere on my phone. Put em on shuffle and I would rarely hear the same song twice in a week. Probably about 5 years ago I just gave up caring and the market is so over-saturated and now (well, recently) this mumble crap really took over. I drove uber on the side for a while and all those young passengers wanted to hear was the same top 40 garbage. Sometimes they'd ask for the aux cord and I'd be expecting something fresh and they'd just play the same horsefeathering crap that the FM station plays.

The funny thing is, I used to rap back in the days and I recorded plenty. When I was first cutting my teeth I would get comments that it sounded like I was reading off the paper and I had to liven up my delivery. Now I hear this modern stuff and just think I was ahead of my time. It's amazing how popular this lazy style has become. There used to be the debate of style vs substance and now the majority of them have neither. Sure you have Kendrick who just keeps getting better and better and there's a couple others that are decent but man most of this horsefeathers sounds like the stuff I was making back in 96-97 and getting quite a bit of flak for.
