I know better than to guess about the future :)
Date: July 27, 2000 02:04AM

I can say with some confidence, though, that the music scene as you knew in 1988 (or any other year really) will not ever make a comeback in the future.

High school kids will end up picking what defines the current music scene, now and in the future. The scene is always changing so there is some hope that if we wait some of the old will make a brief comeback.

Personally, I just hope that at some point high schoolers will start caring again about musicianship and the current crop of bands will be forced to write better music. I also hope that the internet delivers on some of its potential and get more diversity back in the scene, like late 60s, 70s and to some degree the 80s.

For now, I can console myself with the bands in the current scene who the high school kids have made a mistake by not identiifying as 70s and 80s throwbacks, like Goo Goo Dolls, Collective Soul, Savage Garden, Vertical Horizon, ...
