My, my … hey, hey …

„In just about every country except England and America there are strangely strong family ties. Very few countries need rock & roll. Very few. It’s America and England that need it, and probably Germany. But France and Italy, no way. They don’t need it. Rock provides a family life that is missing in America and England. It provides a sense of community.“

David Bowie , 1973
( „Bowie amongst the Barbarians“ by Tim Ferris)

I asked some people what comes to their mind in 2006 when they hear the word „Rock.“:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_impact_of_rock_and_roll

America: Rock as a cultural heritage, part of the American Way of Life
England: Rock, reshaped as Britpop: Career oppurtunity for people lost for any other market, behind finance and media the third economic power …
Germany: Rock became completely irrelevant, a remote reservation for right-wingers … or left-wingers , or boring old farts …
France: It’s still a bit … bizzare …
Italy: It still sounds like singing zucchini …

But borders vanish into the electronic oblivion, myspace is yourspace is ourspace and provides a sense of community…
