"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."
