Breakdowns and screams or quirkiness and reverb; these two combinations seem to be the only options in the rock world today. There are a few people doing something different, but as far as the big acts go those are your choices. Obviously, there are always innovators trying something new, but there are even fewer bands keeping the torch aflame. In this case, I’m talking about classic rock, a sub-genre associated with mid-life crisis bikers and/or dads. This particular scene has influenced and inspired each and every band alive today and, while the scene is respected, it’s rarely replicated.
