I read a piece in the Waco Trib this morning about the coming retirement of the Baby Boom generation. Whatever else the article claimed, I finished reading in the third paragraph, which identified the Baby Boomers as “the generation that revolutionized music….”
I don’t think so; but I’d love get your opinion. A cursor check confirmed my memory; Elvis, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix all were born before 1945, the start of the Baby Boom. I didn’t check further because I didn’t, and still don’t, see the need. If music has been revolutionized in the past 50 years, these guys were involved, if not responsible, and none of them are baby boomers.
Should the Baby Boom get credit for revolutionizing music?
