2T Vs. 3T pop culture
#99
The generation gap does not always apply. It's too much money for me, but then, I missed Woodstock and Monterey too.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/10/03/de...oldchella/

When the lineup was announced, music fans could hardly believe their eyes.

The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan? Paul McCartney and Neil Young? Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters and The Who? All at one festival? Were they serious?

But even though the event is booked for a Southern California desert, the lineup is no mirage.

As Jerry Anderson, a 48-year-old San Jose native who now lives in Oakland, put it, “I don’t think they could put together a more epic lineup. Everyone on the bill is legendary.”

That’s why Anderson and scores of other Bay Area fans are traveling hundreds of miles and, in many cases, spending thousands of dollars to take in the Desert Trip music festival in Southern California’s Coachella Valley.

For them, it’s not just a music festival, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime rock ’n’ roll pilgrimage.

Pat Ireland, 49, says he’s “so pumped” to be bringing his two sons — Johnny, 17, and Maddox, 13. He sees it as a chance to bond over music that bridges the generation gap.

“I’ll pass by their rooms (at home) and my son is listening to Neil Young and I’m like, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool,’” says the Brentwood resident. “They are smart kids.”

Johnny Ireland adds that grooving on The Stones or Pink Floyd is not a case of accommodating dad’s geezer music tastes.

“I feel like there is more passion (in classic rock),” he says. “I feel like there is more dedication that they put into their music. Most of the music now is just the same thing over and over again. Some of it is OK. But some of the older music just took a lot more work.”............

Yes, I agree, Johnny.
