Let’s hear it for aging rock stars. Bob Dylan, the man who wins any award that baby boomers can think to give him, apparently isn’t a fan of new music. NME reports his current tour program has the following rant:
I know there are groups at the top of the charts that are hailed as the saviours of rock'n'roll and all that, but they are amateurs. They don't know where the music comes from…

: Damn kinds! I realize he’s just playing to his base of fans who believe any music worth listening to was recorded years ago, but this from the guy who wrote overrated staples like “Lay Lady Lay?” Come on.
Continuing with the aging theme, in one of the better New Order interviews ever (where were these promoting “Get Ready”) The Independent found Bernard talking about Hooky going down to yell at The Libertines about having the tv up too loud while they were at the same residential studio recording their new albums. There’s something to be said for the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle…
