met a guy. He’s young. We’ll call him “Dude”. Dude and I talked about
music and bands. I really wanted to know what Dude was into, whom did he
think was cool. It turned out that Dude was after the same thing.
Suddenly I’m old and supposedly learned. I felt a professorial wave flow
through me. Believing in thoroughly throwing myself into a role I took
the bait and ran with it.
here’s my biased and condensed version of the history of Punk Rock:
roll started and then became the norm and then disco started and people
hated it. Rock and roll became too much. It got excessive and became a
big business. By the 1970’s people were pissed. It was time for a change
and everyone knew it. Then one day there was Punk Rock and it was all
and insolent Punk Rock jumped right in your face. Fashion attitude and
music were Punk Rocks trinity. If you were sick of hippies then punk rock
was totally for you. Punks are anarchists so whatever. Some bands in New
York and in London became famous. Everybody loved them. Stuff started
happening in LA and then it went everywhere.
that’s punk rock.
