For those about to rock, I salute you

I’m optimistic you read the title of this post and immediately connected the reference to AC/DC’s song.

If you didn’t, that’s okay. I’m not here to judge. Rock music isn’t for everyone, but it certainly is for me.

Since purchasing a Spotify premium membership, I’ve had the opportunity to explore my preferred genre of music a little further. I have my favourites, but there’s a whole lot of hits I’m not familiar with, so I’ve been doing some digging to see what I can discover.

Good Lord, it’s like I’ve stumbled upon the promise land.

I’ve been told I have an old soul when it comes to my choice in music, and personally, I take it as a compliment. I often tell people I was born in the wrong era, and I’ve met plenty of others around my age that say the same thing. There’s just something so incredible about rock and roll that dominated the music scene throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, and I can’t begin to imagine how incredible it would have been to experience these hits first-hand.

I think it’s quite encouraging that a lot of younger people appreciate classic rock music to the same extent I do. Granted, I’m a bit of a fanatic, but the interest that is still being shown in music that was produced and released decades ago goes to show how timeless this music is.

Some of my favourite rock bands include Queen (as we all know), AC/DC, KISS, Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Guns N’ Roses, The Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival (borderline country rock) and Fleetwood Mac. That’s just a few. The music that was created by these bands and countless others holds a special place in my heart, and I can only hope up and coming generations can appreciate this music as much as we are now.
