The day we look at movers, shakers and game changers, of things that look incredibly trivial now…
Because scaremongers like to write a lot about the insane changes the next generation will bring. Here’s some changes already brought, against all odds and discouragement, and they turned out alright.
By 1965 Bob Dylan was the ‘voice of a generation’.
I really like his song Like a Rolling Stone, and it was one of the first songs he would perform with an electronic, rather than an acoustic, sound.
Bob was a true mover, shaker and game changer, for the music scene of yesterday’s youth, that was just as scary as the possible change of today. Apparently in this case, it was equally as scary for all generations involved. And it all turned out alright. Electric instruments haven’t killed folk music yet.
