"Rock is dead. You can blame the Internet and
Rebecca Black, but that doesn't change the
fact that we let it die. We put too much or a
burden on our musical heroes and so many
of them cracked with the weight. Others
succumbed to age or accident and the simple
curse of mortality. There's a collective legacy
left behind by these legends of song that
continues to inspire the new generations of
songwriters and musicians. We forget, I think,
over time, just how unique and important these
pioneering personas are to so many aspects
of our lives. Our memories are formed
around their art, specific events associated
permanently with the music we experienced
at the time. And when these heroes are gone
you have to ask yourself, where are the
successors? Who can replace Joe Strummer?
Elvis? Lux Interior or Kurt Cobain? Joey,
Dee Dee, or Johnny? Dimebag Darrel or
Johnny Cash? There is no one to fill those
shoes and each bastardized song in a car
commercial only serves to dig that grave a
little deeper. So, yeah, Rock is dead…
This is our tribute to the greats,
our resurrection of music through art."
