    Sadly, no. I find with every passing day that there really is not a lot of talent out there that the record producers are passing off as music. I'm not saying that there are no talented musicians out there, but they are probably local.

    The Bears are a Beatles-inspired band. Also The Flaming Lips, The Beach Boys (Pet Sounds), and Oasis.

      @ MUSICMAN: Aha! "..Today" is better. Cool! BWilson told The Times of London that The Beatles "Rubber Soul" was insp. for "Pet Sounds", and the instrumentation/ Bears is Adrian Belew; Beatles devotee/ They're Oasis' standard.

    There's a lot of great music today. The question is have you progressed enough to appreciate it? 50 Years is a bit of a gap. How about you work up to it 1st before I waste my time.

      Today's tunes are not all created the same. There is plenty of music now with heart and soul. The generalizations about post-Boomer generations are old and stale.
